There seems to be extreme amounts of disagreement points concerning the matter of whose fault this is, and whether the scientific fine dust readings are actually accurate in the first place. The blame for this environmental disaster is not quite clear until now. Korea argues that the factory activities and deserts of China caused these dusts with it being transferred to Korea by the wind. On the other hand China believes that most of the fine dust is the creation of Korea’s own pollutants. As you can see there is no end to the blaming. But the danger is still imminent.
|[ I have an interview with an acquaintance of my mother
who was an inhabitant of Canada for 2 years. ]
A: I believe that it is unbelievably horrible. It is always a nuisance to buy and distribute masks to my family. We really can’t do a thing outdoors anymore.
A: Due to my long stay in Canada and other countries previous to that, I can assure you no place was as bad as Korea.
A: Well, I am not an expert or anything but, it seems that the government needs to pass policies, limiting air pollution and to engage in this matter in a much more focused manner. Whether it be negotiating with China or bringing national changes, it does not matter. Something needs to be done fast.■
To conclude, no matter what the readings say, there is no doubt that the problem of all this fine dust is on both countries whether or not whose fault is bigger. There should be conventions dedicated to this notion and technology improved in both nations. To make a world where you can freely inhale the air, there needs to be instant action such as planting trees and creating green belts. Or there could be a method where all the citizens participate in growing plants and trees of their own to minimize the effects of fine dust.
