At about 8:30 on a chilly winter morning, a factory outside the desert
city Ulin in China is already getting busy. Its five-story office
building is almost fully occupied. Trucks drive in with coal and drive
out with construction waste. And if you look closely, you can see
workers wearing helmets, climbing up and down on giant pipes. In front
of the office building, a row of colorful flags reads, “Fighting for
success in 2015”.
