China, or the People's Republic of China is the most populous country in the world, with a population of 1.3 billion inhabitants. China has started its journey on the road to development. It has been classified under the NIC (Newly Industrialized Countries), and is trying to compete with the economy of the West. However, China's increasing prosperity is coming with a price: damage to the environment. The problem of air and water pollution are rampant in China. According to the World bank, China has 16 polluted cities, out of the 20 most polluted cities of the world. Many places in China smell like high-sulfur coal and gasoline. China has strict pollution standards, but, only a third of the cities adhere to the rules. The smog in Beijing and Shanghai is so thick sometimes, that flight services are stalled due to poor visibility. Beijing's air is sixteen times more polluted than the air in New York. The northeastern town of Benxi had once disappeared from satellite images, due to acute air pollution. Atleast 74% of the Chinese claim that they are worried about the increasing air pollution. The green house gases that are being emitted by China are accelerating at an alarming rate. Though the Chinese model of economic growth has environmental limits, pollution has not decreased. These limits have not been taken into consideration at all. Due to its increasing pollution, China is likely to worsen the global climate change, if it does not do anything about the warning bells that have begun sounding already. Global economic success seems to be the first priority of China, and everything else has taken a back stage. At this juncture, some of the questions that arise are: Is the environment one of China's main priorities? Is the economy going to be promoted at the cost of detriment of the environment? Is the Chinese government taking concrete steps to fight air pollution, and reduce the emission of green house gases? Though the Chinese government has been taking certain measures, these have not been effective enough. In this document, we will discuss about air pollution in China, describe the steps taken by the Chinese government to decrease air pollution, and analyze these measures critically.
