According to Vallero, air pollution is the presence of contaminants or pollutant substances in the air that interfere with human health or welfare, or produce other harmful environmental effects.(3) The above statement is indeed true in case of China. The presence of harmful particles in air such as nitrous dioxide has increased a lot in the last decade there (Bump). The increased rate of air pollution has caused severe health and economic losses to China. According to a scientific data, air pollution has caused 1.2 million premature deaths in China, which is two-fifth of global total (Wong).Another data from the World Bank mentions that out of 338 monitored cities in China,225 are overly polluted(qtd. In Ho and Nielson 13).
The economic damage to China due to air pollution is also significant. Due to large number of health damages, China incurred an economy loss of 4112 billion in the year 2005(Ekstrom). Therefore, it is essential to establish some policies keep China a flourished country in terms of health and economy. One of them is green taxes. Green taxes can lessen harmful emissions and thus cut health damages. In the long run it will improve economic growth (Ho and Nielson 1).

[...] Some YouTube videos from BBC news present some hazardous conditions of some cities in China. One scene of a video shows that people using medicines to clean their food from polluted particles in the village of Linfen, which is considered as the most polluted place on earth. A similar other video from BBC indicates that coal combustion is the main to blame for this huge air pollution. As the reporter says, not to take a deep breath in the village of Goregaon, as it might end up making you ill or even kill you.”This statement clearly indicates how bad the situation is there (Protectorravids and Vice).

[...] Hence, tax on fuels based on their ecological reimbursement is a very efficient system, as it reduces pollution significantly and at modest cost to consumption. Conclusion: According to various secondary sources, it can be finally concluded that air pollution is a big concern for China.PM, SO2, and nitrous dioxide are the main intoxicated particles found in the air of China. They mainly come from the combustion of coal. Coal is a major energy source of China. And its economy relies heavily on it. Till now, China is focusing more on its economy growth than its environmental issues. [...]
[...] Air pollution is putting a dent in China's economy. Establishing green taxes or carbon credit systems might be the solution of the above two problems. Research Analysis and interpretation: China's air pollution is rising rapidly due to the fast growth of population, resulting in an adverse affect on health (Kira, Nam, Selin, Lamsal, Reilly and Paltsev).According to some research, air pollution is the leading cause of respiratory disease there. Particulates such as nitrous dioxide, sulfur dioxide and PM 10 are in high concentrations in many cities of China (Nielson and Ho Wong).There are many sources causing this pollution. [...]
