Chapter Summary

In 2012, several major publications published in-depth and series reports on soil pollution, including the "Poisonous Land" series published in Southern Weekly and the cover story "The Lurking Poisonous Land" by Caijing magazine on June 4. These reports highlighted the problem of polluted land left by factories that have been closed. The dangers of soil pollution are transmitted to humans in two ways: by food and by one's living environment. In addition to the government's incentive to tackle soil pollution, the media also focuses on issues including reports on the pollution, choice of remediation technology, and policy making. On September 29, the same newspaper released another significant message: having been studied by experts, China's Soil Pollution Prevention and Control Law entered the legislation stage. In a report in September, Professor Wang Shuyi said that China's Soil Pollution Prevention and Control Law had shifted from expert study to the legislation phase.
