Kahn & Yardley report that pollution problem in China has shattered all precedents the same way the scale and speed of her rise as an economic power lacks a clear parallel in history. Environmental degradation in China is now so severe with such stark repercussions domestically and internationally. They cite the Ministry of Health in China having said that public health is reeling and pollution has made cancer the leading death cause in China – they attribute hundreds of thousands of deaths that China experience each year to ambient air pollution alone.
They also give a report that often, Chinese cities appear wrapped in a toxic gray shroud with only one percent of her five hundred and sixty million city dwellers breathing air that the European Union considers safe. Environmental wretchedness that some countries might consider catastrophic can seem ordinary in China including industrial cities where people seldom see the sun; children sickened or killed by local pollution forms such as lead poisoning or an algal red tides-swamped coastline that large ocean sections no longer sustain marine life. According to Kahn & Yardley, China is choking on its own accomplishment and although her economy is posting double-digit growth rates succession, the growth derives from a wobbling expansion of heavy urbanization and industry, which requires massive energy inputs, of which it obtains almost all from coal, which is the most readily available and dirtiest source.
Acid rain involves the acidification of rain by airborne acids.
