2 The Red Zone: Why Beijing’s Air Pollution Crisis is More Complicated than You Think” Summary of the Article “The Red Zone: Why Beijing’s Air Pollution Crisis in More Complicated than You Think” is an article written by Samantha Schipani (2014). The article discusses the issue of air pollution in Beijing, China. It was first published in the Journal of Sustainable Development, Vol.12 (2014). According to the author, air pollution has become a pressing matter in Beijing as particulate concentration has gone beyond the unprecedented levels. In fact, China has become the world largest source of carbon emissions. The Chinese populations have been pressurizing the government to curb air pollution because it poses severe health risks to them as well as extended ecological coercions. However, the problem of air smog in Beijing, China is more complex than it is usually shown on the media. Despite the fact that the national and municipal government of Beijing has established policies so as to curb air pollution, the situation has not been solved. There are numerous challenges about combating air pollution in Beijing because Beijing is a manufacturing hub full of many manufacturing industries. Schipani (2014) claims that the air pollution in Beijing poses health hazards to the Beijing population. This is because the particulate atmospheric contamination put together watery precipitations in the air with various constituents, incorporating acids such as sulfates and nitrates, metals, gradual chemicals, soil and dust elements. These particles are dangerous to the people who breathe in. Indeed, data suggest that there is a substantial exposure-reaction association between motherly exposure to sulfur dioxide and the particles suspended in the course of the last trimester of gestation and newborn birth weight. In Beijing, the suspended particles and sulfur dioxide add an additional danger of low birth weight in the Beijing populace.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
