Polluting to death: China introduces execution for environmental offenders

I post this with caution, although Xinhua is cited as the source of this report.

Because this is insane.

Absolutely. Insane.

China has introduced “harsher punishments” for breaking the nation’s environmental protection laws: reckless violators of pollution standards in the world’s biggest and fastest-growing economy now face execution.

I shouldn't be surprised at the level of statism in China. People have been killed before for lesser things.

But FGS, capital punishment for pollution?
