Commentary to the song “About the Chinese Problem”.
Here is stanza 2:
If the things are so on, it’ll be curtains for us,
Soon there will come the end of this era —
These Chinese people really pretend to deprive
Our planet of its atmosphere.
As the epigraph to this song, there can be used the words of Porphyry Ivanov, peace be upon him: “They (people) live on their own, apart from Nature, thinking it is an inexhaustible source, and do not care about the consequences that may occur as a result of the irrational activities of man.”
In 2016, there came out Lyudmila Fionova’s article “What shall we breathe?” (this article is in Russian), where she described in detail the issue of the rapid deterioration of the atmosphere condition.
