Quandary Resolution 3598
princesse lointaine, greenwash, fallacious, selcouth


It may seem a selcouth thing that the Chinese government has built a monument to a princesse lointaine, a goddess representing the new growth of spring time, in a pristine park with outdoor artwork and a museum as a testament to the new abundance and safety to be provided by the Three Gorges dam, just a few hundred yards away, but it is a fallacious presentation and merely a greenwash of the environmental damage being wrought by the new factories and strip mining operations along the river, which spew brown waste into the air and water of the now deeper, darker river habitat.
