Will Chinese New Year be Able to Solve Pollution Issues?
There has been so much buzz about rising poor air quality in China, but with the beginning of Chinese New Year, it would be worth seeing what is in store. As per the Air Quality Index, in China, particulate matter, of as much as less than 2.5 micrometer in diameter, was recorded between 470 to 490, which in itself are scary.
With rapid rate of industrialization, China has been enveloped in smog, which can cause range of health concerns to all. On the other hand, there has been issue percolating about the rising number of Chinese people shifting from rural areas to urban areas, which makes it clear that it is most likely to be the biggest migrations in human history.
It is expected that by 2030, as many as 300 million will migrate into Chinese cities and towns, which can increase Chinese population in cities considerably. It would further escalate pollution issues, which would further raise more health concerns. It's becoming a sort of vicious circle, which needs to be broken before it's too late.
There is dire need to look into these issues closely so that corrective measures can be taken in this context else it could become worse for people in the time to come.
