A recent study published by Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences shows that pollution from heavy industry concentrated in eastern China is drifting across the Pacific Ocean and helping foul the air on North America’s west coast.

Dr. Turner pointed out that "the new study offers a chance to have a broader debate about the responsibility for China’s pollution problem."
