This article presents some really scary stuff on pollution from China. I am not sure if such a study is done about Indian but we in India have a pretty bad situation too. I guess it is worse in China because they are the manufacturing hub for the world and India is the services hub.. which requires more office work. But Indian businesses are not too eco-friendly either! But this article explains really well how China exports pollution to Europe and Japan.. and it goes like it is going right now.. probably soon into US.
The cloud of dirt was hard to make out from the ground, but at an altitude of 10,000 meters (32,808 feet), the scientists could see the gigantic mass of ozone, dust and soot with the naked eye. In a specially outfitted aircraft taking off from Munich airport, they surveyed a brownish mixture stretching from Germany all the way to the Mediterranean Sea.
These kinds of clouds float above Europe for most of the year and they’ve traveled far to get there. By analyzing the makeup of particles in the cloud, European scientists were able to identify its origin. "There was a whole bunch from China in there," says Andreas Stohl, a 38-year-old from the Norwegian Institute for Air Research.
