China Air
You won’t believe just how bad the pollution problem in China has become. China is the most populous country on the planet, and with economic growth rate at over 10% the environment is paying a heavy toll.
Pollution in China remains largely unchecked and as a result the country contains some of the dirtiest air in the world. Hence why people walk through the city wearing dust masks for protection against the thick clouds of smog. China is home to many polluted, unusable waterways, as well as swaths of garbage-infested land.
China is trying to do something about the problem in terms of creating long-term sustainable commitments to the environment. For instance, in 2010 China was ranked as the leading investor in low-carbon energy technology.
Even though Chinese leaders are vowing to change and look after the planet’s interests, it’s going to be difficult with such rapid expansion, especially considering how bad China’s pollution problems remain.
