The rumors of AIR Pollution from ceramic assaults over the Pacific sea and ends up over the US west coast – and American consumerism is to accuse for a portion of it, a study states.
On some days, almost a quarter of the pollutants in the air over California, Oregon, Washington and Portland were primarily spewed into the air in China, during the making of televisions, toys, wireless phones and other goods for trade goods.
“We’ve outsourced our constructing and much of our Pollution, but some of it is blowing back over the Pacific to haunt us,” said co-author Steve Davis, a scientist at the University of California, Irvine. The study also examined sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide.
“For each of these pollutants, about 21 per cent of export-related Chinese emissions were attributed to China-to-US export,” said the study, which seems in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
