China, as we all know, is one of the most developed countries in this entire world. Its economy level, discipline and innovation are recognized worldwide.
Pollution in China
Another aspect about China that is also famous is the pollution level. No matter how innovative its population might be and how developed might be its economy, the pollution level overcomes all the other countries from this world. Who ever visited this part of the world knows that the air sometimes is impossible to breathe.
Why this thing happens? How it affects China’ population? These are two questions to which I will try to offer an answer so you will gather a bit more knowledge regarding this phenomenon. If you are interested, you should continue your reading session.
Generalities about China
China is admired for the speed with which its economy grew over the years. They worked a lot, they invested a lot and now they can gather the fruits of their labor.
As everything in this world, this achievement comes along with another price to pay. Due to this economic phenomenon, the pollution level increased with the same speed.
There are many other factors that influence this pollution level such as the overpopulation of the area, the wide number of vehicles, the improper climate and there might be other things to add to this list but I will stop here.
Even if it is known as one of the wealthiest parts of this world when it comes about its air quality it seems to be the poorest.
The motorized vehicles seem to be the biggest issue when it comes about pollution factors. The wide number of people who can afford a vehicle suffocated the roads of this country and the traffic tripled over the years and it is in a continuous growth.
The noxious emissions filled with carbon monoxide and sulfur dioxide mixed with nitrogen dioxide are some of the most terrible enemies of the environment. It is the most crowded place on this earth and the population is still growing every day.
Not only the traffic pollutes the atmosphere, but also the coal factories which add a plus to the country economy also affect the environment big time. The location of this country is also quite unhappy.
Due to its topography, the noxious factors cannot spread far away from the area. A country surrounded by mountains all over the place will not allow all those gases to spread and vanish. They just keep them trapped over the area.
