Polemical Statements

We have written 5 initial polemical statements in our group as following:

– People need dispense with our throw away culture.
– Humans hate the earth.
– Humans are maneuvering their daily life through garbage because the earth is buried in it.
– We are appropriating catchy words about sustainability to sell more staff.
– Sharing/reusing things rather than everyone owning them each.

Bicycle sharing, known as one of China’s “New Four Major Inventions” originated during a period of mass entrepreneurship and innovation. In May 2015, the first dockless shared bicycles were introduced on the campus of Peking University. The concept behind bicycle sharing, “Green Travel” and solving the “Last Mile” problem was widely welcomed. Various venture capitalists, sensing the market potential of bicycle sharing, rushed into the new business. Soon a shared economy storm swept across China. In just over two years, more than 70 shared bicycle companies had sprung up. These companies raised more than 10 billion US dollars in financing and placed around 27 million shared bicycles in major cities across China. Each shared bicycle brand used a distinct color to differentiate its bicycles from competitors. In core areas of big cities, the sheer quantity of shared bicycles soon began overwhelming public space.
