The global issue that continues to be a concern is air pollution. The World Health Organization (WHO) says 5.5 million people die from air pollution each year.
Quoted from The Independent on Wednesday (14/2/2018), Imperial College London respiratory specialist Professor Kian Fan Chung said, China and India are the two most polluting countries in the world.
"The most polluted areas are in China and India and also in some other parts of the world," Chung said.
Chung calls air pollution in London beyond the normal limit set by the EU. Even so, pollution in London is nothing compared to major cities in China and India like Beijing and New Delhi.
Among China and India, China is the country with the most deadly air pollution in the world. About 1.6 million people die from this pollution in China every year.
Related to this, the Chinese Government has promised to make their sky 'blue back'. One of them is by shifting the focus to new renewable energy than steel or coal.
The controversial thing that China has to say about it is their intention to limit the population of Beijing and Shanghai. China wants them to fight the so-called 'big city disease'.
As is known, the Beijing population will reach 23 million by 2020 while Shanghai will have a population of 25 million in 2035.
