 Air pollution in China - Encyclopedia of Earth
In this list, two Chinese cities or areas are included: Linfen, in view of very serious air pollution caused by the use of coal, and water pollution, e.g., lead and arsenic in the Huai River basin, due mainly to industrial and agricultural waste.
Furthermore, the very large population of China, an estimated 1,340,000,000, compared to the US (300,000,000) or the EU (about 490,000,000 including recent extensions) means that the same emission per head in China will lead to respectively 4.5 or 3 times the emission from the US or Europe.
So in comparison with other cities in the past, it seems that air pollution in China is quite serious,but is in the same order as observed in European or US cities in the period 1970-1980.
