Pollution in China
China has consistently been rated as the no 1 country in air pollution indices. Developmental activities and economic growth have led to a massive increase in the no of vehicles on road in China. The fumes from vehicles contain toxic gases like carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and nitrogen. These gases are equally harmful for man, animal and the ecosystem.
