1. Summary
Air pollution in China appears to have improved over the past year, though it’s still
really, really bad. Last month Beijing saw smog so thick that just breathing for a day was as
unhealthy as smoking 40 cigarettes.
We conduct this research to give you the most accurate view about the air pollution in
Beijing and how serious it is in the past few years.
To be specific, China is the leading producer of sulfur dioxide in air and particulate
matter from coal combustion. China's factories and factories discovered 25.5 million tons of
sulfur dioxide, an acid-causing carcinogen by 2005, up 27 percent from 2000. We find out that
the annual death toll from air pollution in China is estimated at 1.6 million people, equivalent to
4,400 people a day, accounting for 17% of the country's total deaths. Every year in China, more
than 1,000,000 people die from tobacco. However, There are 75,000,000 people die from air
pollution.

The meaning of this research is not only to find out the cause of air pollution in Beijing,
but we also tried to find the best solutions to solve these serious problem. There are two effective
ways to solve the problem. The first one would be The Beijing government need a number of
measures to reduce pollution, such as opening a "bicycle city" campaign.
Secondly, Beijing authorities will also need to intensify monitoring of airborne dust at all
construction sites, while limiting the use of large-scale machinery. Any violation of the new
regulations on air pollution will be severely punished.
2. Introduction
Air pollution is probably one of the most serious environmental problems confronting our
civilization today. Most often, it is caused by human activities such as mining, construction,
transportation, industrial work, agriculture, smelting, etc. WHO was able to compare a total of
795 cities in 67 countries for levels of small and fine particulate matter during the five-year
period, 2008-2013. PM10 and PM2.5 (an air pollutant that is a concern for people's health when
its levels in air are high) include pollutants such as sulfate, nitrates and black carbon, which
penetrate deep into the lungs and into the cardiovascular system, posing the greatest risks to
human health. Data was then analysed to develop regional trends.
Air pollution kills 4,000 people a day in China, representing 17 per cent of all deaths in
the country. Breathing air in the country's capital Beijing for just one day is the equivalent to
smoking 40 cigarettes.
