As spring rounds the corner, our air quality is going to be getting worse and worse leading into summer, the reason is two fold. First, temperatures begin to rise leading to more carbon dioxide in the air, and more harmful particles such as dust circulating our breathing air. This is corroborated by the increasing in harvesting/planting done by farmer, which also releases a lot of harmful breathing particles into the air. This is supported by the guardian which writes "Heavy fertilizer use and spreading manure that was stored over winter causes big releases of ammonia each spring. This reacts chemically with pollution from traffic and industry to create particles that can stay in the air for a week or more". It is true that countries have been working to reduce ammonia emissions, however we still are not quite there. The problem is, just because one country reduces their ammonia emissions, doesn't mean they are necessarily safe. The guardian further writes, " Around one third of the health impacts from western Europe’s particle pollution occurs in other parts of the world". This is exemplified by the 55,000 early deaths caused cause in China as a result of western Europe consumption of Chinese products. Spring time is not the best for the central valley, or China.
