Entire population of China has been suffering from Air Pollution from many years. There are following primary sources of Air Pollution in China:
There are two major pollutants which are responsible huge Air Pollution in Beijing in the first three months of this year. Nitrogen dioxide is the first one and the other one is particulate matter. The diameter of particulate matter lies between 2.5 and 10 micrometers which is also called as PM10. In January 2013, it has been found that the particulate matter has been increased by around 47 percent as compared to the same month last year. This data is given by the head of Beijing Municipal Environment Protection Bureau, Chen Tian.
High level of emissions is the major reason behind the increase in these two pollutants. Mr. Chen said “the emissions created by those living and producing in the city far exceed what the environment can take”. Topography and weather conditions are also responsible for the increase in above mentioned pollutants. Recently we have seen that the relative humidity in the capital is at its highest levels in the last ten years. The surface wind is travelling at its lowest speed in the last decade. All these conditions are leading to lower-temperature inversion layer which attracts pollutants.
