+ - NASA Data Reveals China's Industrial Air Pollution->

Submitted by eldavojohn
eldavojohn (898314) writes "China's skyrocketing industrialism comes at a price to the environment according to Canadian scientists who used NASA data to publish a report on worldwide air pollution (PDF) in the journal of Environmental Health Perspectives. The biggest problem appears to be a bright red mass in Northeastern China around the Yangtze River Delta — a rapidly developing piece of China's explosive economy. There doesn't seem to be a lot of acknowledgment from the state media but blogs are picking it up as one of the few sources of data on air pollution for the area. The sad fact is that particulate matter in the air that is less than 2.5 micrometers is not classified as pollution by the Chinese government so they have no official measurements to provide. If you're in Shanghai and looking for a breath of fresh air, you've got quite the journey ahead of you."
