How China Is Polluting The World

The rapid industrialization in China has led to the tremendous increase in air pollution as well as other forms of pollution. In fact, it is estimated that more than 1800 factories contribute to the global pollution problem daily. The sad thing is that not all factories are polluting the same way and this makes it difficult for us to identify sources of pollution in China.

Sources Of Pollution In China

Most of the environmental problems in China result from the excess production of some hazardous materials. The problem is made worse by the fact that most Chinese individuals do not have access to the information on the harmful effects of air pollution. If everyone in China knew the risks, there would be significant pressure put on the Chinese government to curb the problem. Luckily, with the Internet there is now an opportunity for us to educate ourselves on environmental issues in China.

Many people are unaware that the main cause of Chinese pollution is actually caused by the massive use of manufacturing by Chinese citizens. For instance, if you have a look at the figures compiled by the Environmental Protection Agency for the United States, you will see that the majority of the toxic chemicals come from the automobile industry. In addition, most of the factories that produce automobile exhaust have no air pollution regulation certificate in place. This means that the mixture of the various chemicals, fuel and oil that are used produces large amounts of air pollutants which are extremely dangerous for the long term health of Chinese citizens.

Discrepancies In Air Pollution Statistics In China

There are also large discrepancies between the air pollution statistics for Chinese cities and those for the rest of the world. Most of the cities in China have very high rates of air pollution, yet many of the world’s largest and most developed countries don’t have such problems. This is because the air pollution in China is caused by the overproduction of some toxic chemicals. As China develops its economy and the economy becomes more developed, the problem of air pollution will probably become much less severe. However, until that time, the best that we can do is try to help Chinese cities develop clean technologies and invest in cleaner automobiles for the same reasons that the world bank lent money to China in the first place – to help reduce the damage that global warming causes.

Bottom Line

This rapid buildup of gaseous pollutants has had a devastating effect on the environment. To remedy this problem, the Chinese government has implemented a variety of policies, most of which are not sustainable in the long term. The main areas of concern are air pollution, water pollution and the dangerous environmental impacts of the widespread use of dangerous toxic chemicals. To address these issues, the Chinese government has been working closely with the World Bank and the United Nations to develop a plan to reduce China’s environmental impact, and to develop green techniques to promote environmental tourism.
