    This is 0.0002% of the population dying each day of pollution.
    Last I saw, the stats for the united states where at about 80,000 people dying per year of air pollution, meaning that almost 1700 people die each week. This is 0.0005% of the population.
    I am not saying this is not a problem. I am saying this is a global problem that we need to address as a people, not just as a country. :)
    edit: as /u/StarmanSuper noticed, I was comparing per day to per week by mistake. the real number for China is 0.0014%, which is way higher. I wanted to address the global problem, but China is really in deep.

      You're comparing deaths per day to deaths per week, though, right? China's deaths per week would be 0.0014% of the population, which is almost triple the US.

      Definitely a global problem, and one I wish we could start addressing.

      People are always doing walks to raise money and awareness for cancer and other diseases. We should start doing not-walks to raise awareness for air pollution. Pick a place that's teeming with air pollution, and then gather donations to not walk there.

        Oh! I missed per day, thought it was per week. Wow! This is insane. o.O But yeah, I just wanted to highlight the global nature of the problem.

      I didn't check your numbers, but if they're true, it's a very good dose of perspective. China is not the problem, but a part of it. Thank you!

    Seriously, put some regulations in place and be done with it.
