Connecting the life and perspective of an identifiable individual with large-scale industrial pollution was identified as an effective way of communicating climate causes in our research.
WHAT IT SHOWS: Just a ditch separates the Ningxia Baofeng Energy plant from Li Jiayun (not her real name) who is hoeing her field. Li's family planted 50 to 60 mu of red dates, but after they used the water from the ditch to irrigate the plants, many of them died. Sweet corn also won't grow here. The government moved the villagers to the Hongshiwan Mine Relocation building. They have to travel 2 to 3 km to get to their land. Many of them are willing to build new homes in the old place to be closer to their land.
