Air pollution is becoming a major problem in China. China has been creating a lot air pollutants affecting its neighbouring countries. Hong Kong which has not much industrial activities has been affected very badly by the pollution created in China. Smog becomes very common during winter as the wind carries a lot of pollutants, including nitrogen dioxide, sulfur dioxided, carbon monoxide, and ozone from the north (China).
The short film was taken at around 8 am on May 7 2007 which was a Monday morning. There had been virtually no activities going on in Hong Kong but still pollutants were blown from Mainland China to Hong Kong.
The major cause of pollution in Guangdong is believed to be power generation. The Mainland Chinese Communist government has been unable to control power generation by illegal power plants using low quality coal probably without any filtering. The Mainland Chinese Communist government has said repeatedly that it will reduce pollution; however, there is strong evidence that air pollution is increasing rather than reducing! Hong Kong is the victim of Mainland China's economic growth.
