The pollution is hurting the GDP and the people of China. Factories that once caused the pollution are leaving to countries with even more relaxed regulations. This has forced China to pushed China to invest in other sectors which can be a risky gamble. China is losing its allure and is now faced with new task of adapting. If China cannot adapt then there will be no more growth, and the “Golden Years” will be for nothing.
China has recently fallen into an economic slump. Because it is so involved with other countries around the world, this economic slump that China is going through is also affecting the other countries as well. The environment has also been affected negatively by globalization. There are many polluting industries, wastes, ecologically destructive practices, and air and water pollution. The reason this is happening is because people see China as a vastly growing country, corporations and companies want to move there because of the great opportunities they see to grow.
China has changed to communism off and on thorguhout the years but always has had some typeof a dictator. These leaders have greatly contributed to China, as they have used trade/exports, low wages and foreign investment to get China to become the 2nd biggest econmony it is today. Thanks to certain leaders of China, the Chinese economy has had periods of success and stability; however that has fluctuated thanks to the actions of other Chinese leaders. Mao Zedong was the laeder of China before Deg Xiapong. Mao started a revolution in order to overthrow the currwent goveremtn and “fix” Chiana.
By knowing the challenges the nation has faced, it’s much easier China, for example, has traveled a long way to get to where it is today, one of the world's leading economies. China wasn’t doing well in the 1940’s due to the fact that it was devastated by World War II and the civil war that followed. Despite that, it transformed into one of the world's leading industrial economies. India also suffered during the 1940s due to partition and World War II, but not as significantly. Their economy faltered due to the fact that the British were exploiting Indians for the benefit of the British Empire’s war effort.
As the cities that make up China continue to populate, the housing becomes very limited and people choose to spread out. China’s urban growth has enabled businesses around the city to expand making it easier for citizens to access their employment. But with expansion comes vulnerability and because of costs some companies overlook how their operations may affect the country socially and environmentally. That is the case in the port city, Qingdao, China. Early Monday morning, Nov. 25th, it was released that human error was the cause of a fatal pipeline blast on the east side of the city.
Another solution that is becoming more common, is the use of ethanol fuel. This is safer for our environment, but it is not 100% ethanol, thus it pollutes the air as well. The best way to clean up the environment that I can see is to switch to the use of electric vehicles. Currently electric vehicles are only available by lease. So, I suggest that the money the federal government gets from collecting more gasoline tax, should go toward the research of electric vehicles.
Soon the tax credits will be ended for its regular hybrid electrics vehicles. Now it is known, due to the rapid rate of the HEV sales the government has also withdrawn its tax rebates on HEV models, by giving exclusive tax cuts on EV and PHEV models, which based on its total electric charge that the battery pack can hold. Since then, HEV cars were popular among environmentally conscious drivers.
"There are an estimated 400 tanker trucks used to carry water and supplies to and from the sites" (Linda Dong). Fracking companies should not be allowed to slip by National Environmental Laws because they are set for our safety. The Government needs to enforce the regulations set by the EPA for the health of US citizens, and for the preservation of our ozone layer. With an extra 1.65% of fracking pollution, people are being put at a higher risk of cancer, organ damage, nervous system disorders and even death. Our ozone layer- which is not only being tarnished by fracking, but also the process of building a fracking site- needs to be cared for.
The explosion was the largest man made release of polluting sulfur dioxide ever recorded in history , it was also the largest non-volcanic sulfur dioxide event that had been detected since 1978. “Studding Iraq Fire Pollution, 2004”.

The Fire generated 21,000 tons of sulfur dioxide a day.
Sick Building Syndrome is a health condition related to pesticides, insecticides and chemicals we use at home and offices. In the great "Smog Disaster" in London in 1952, four thousand people died in a few days due to the high concentrations of pollution. More hazardous pollutants are discharged into the air each year than are released to surface water, ground water, and land, combined. Motor vehicles produce more air pollution than any other single human activity. One full commuter bus can mean 40 less cars going through your neighbourhood.
