74 Chinese Cities have been monitored to check their air quality, but only 8 passed the test. This is very scary because China’s Ministry of Environmental Protection claims that this is an improvement. The country is trying to eliminate using factories that don’t meet their standards, and reduce coal usage. According to the government, meeting it’s own standards could take China 15 years, probably because China produces most of the world’s pollution- over a quarter of the total carbon dioxide emissions.
