This picture comes from greenpeace.org East Asia campaigns for air pollution. This picture embodies the extreme case of air pollution and uncontrolled carbon emission from industrial processes.

This can be a very strong message to the society that air pollution can significantly decrease quality of life and hence, it is a serious problem.

  4. My white paper topic is about Emission control. It wasn’t very hard to find this image. I used google image and find a city well-known for air pollution. I actually don’t know why there is nobody to regulate emission in Bejing. It is widely known the chinese central government doesn’t really care about environment.
