Study: Global Warming is Worsening China’s Pollution Problems

This Inside Climate News article discusses a study that shows that global warming is worsening China’s pollution problems, studies show. A bit like 19th Century London’s smog, scientists found that more frequent periods of stagnant air will worsen China’s haze and health problems. So will heat waves.

“For Chinese policy makers working to improve current air quality and protect public health, our finding is a daunting conclusion, and one that underscores the need to tackle the challenges of both climate change mitigation and air quality at the same time,” the authors wrote in the study, published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
