The Chinese government issued its annual “State of the Environment” report on Friday. Here are the highlights along with my interpretation and year-end grade for each subject based on the following standard:

A – World class
B – Good
C – Passable
D – Poor but showing signs of improvement
E – Poor and getting worse
F – Dangerous failure
