If peddlers of this petrochemical plant (the largest in the world) got their way, China would siphon off precious resources to produce more plastics and leave our communities' on the hook with all the hazards and a plethora of poisonous byproducts. If you need another reason to be opposed to this plan consider the fact that by 2050 there could be more plastic than fish in our oceans (as noted in this article by the Guardian - http://www.theguardian.com/business/2016/jan/19/more-plastic-than-fish-in-the-sea-by-2050-warns-ellen-macarthur).
