Smog is being exported to the US from China
January 22 , 2014
America's air hasn't improved much after the nation outsourced its emission producing industries to China. A new study finds that some of these emissions are making their way across the ocean and rising smog standards in several parts of the US.
According to researchers, demand for cheap exports may still result in environmental issues. "It's sort of a boomerang effect," an author said. "We need to move beyond placing blame for who's creating these emissions and realize that we all have a common interest in reducing the pollution."
The issue of pollution has become so dire in China that scientists have suggested attaching sprinklers to skyscrapers in order to clean the air.
