Deep breaths, everyone.

Pollution from China travels in large quantities across the Pacific Ocean to the United States, a new study has found, making environmental and health problems unexpected side effects of US demand for cheap China-manufactured goods.

On some days, acid rain-inducing sulphate from burning of fossil fuels in China can account for as much as a quarter of sulphate pollution in the western United States, a team of Chinese and American researchers said in the report published by the US National Academy of Sciences, a non-profit society of scholars.

Cities like Los Angeles received at least an extra day of smog a year from nitrogen oxide and carbon monoxide from China’s export-dependent factories, it said.

This information, true or not (the NAS is a big Climate Church propagandist organization these days), will probably be used to justify some nonsensical restrictions businesses here that do absolutely nothing to mitigate the actual problem. If I had written that a few years ago you’d all be calling me a conspiracy nut.

But you’ve met this president’s EPA.

China's industry puts out a lot of real pollution and some of it gets here. When China's a little richer and a lot freer, they'll care enough to cut back on pollution. Until then, handwringing here will leave the Chinese leadership doing exactly what they choose to do.

I'm not at all surprised.

When I was younger, it was an unusual day when I couldn't see Mt. Borah from my home.
Now, it's an unusual day when I can.
Oregon's population hasn't grown that much, and cars pollute a heck of a lot less than they did back then. It should be roughly a wash.
But observation says otherwise.

Can we blame the drought in California and the US southwest on China?
