Sounds like they could use some government regulation.

A free press that could hold a democratic government to account would help too. The oligarchic system that rules China is not exactly stellar on the environment.

It is the worst of all worlds.

I'm sure the regulations are on the books. They could use enforcement of those regulations.

China seems to teeter totter between no enforcement and execution. Recall the dog/baby food thing.

I suspect whatever regulation they have is subsumed in the crony capitalism the Green Energy crowd is fond of.

History shows that no communist nation is. They're still cleaning up the messes Russia had made across Europe and Asia during their 70 year reign of terror.

I thought the People's Republic of China was the new model for how economies were supposed to be run. Guess I misread something.

Well yes. However Western European countries end to be better than the US in this regard and they all have socialist governments at least some of the time. As I said democracy and a free press to keep the government to account is needed. But also good government regulation to stop corporations shitting everything up.
The Chinese have none of these and have a strange hybrid capitalist oligarchy that long ceased to bear any resemblance to Marxism despite calling itself that. Not sure there are any communist countries as the USSR was.
