I just met with a Chinese colleague from Wuhan University, and I asked him about the air quality. He said conventional air pollution from manufacturing and power plants were not the problem, but that the problem was dust from all the construction. This article link below explains. But underlying China’s growth is not only environmental harm, but an economic model that could collapse. I have no idea what the future of China holds–the greatest and fastest economic rise in human history, but with what ultimate consequences?
