  • Pollution From Asia Affects US Climate – Slashdot

    We are interdependent on this planet.This is no surprise that they are finding that the pollution in China and India are affecting the climate elsewhere – like here in the US. When I went to Beijing last year, I came home and my hair started falling out. I wasn't sure if it was related but I did find the correlation suspicious. We've seen this for years – we would outlaw chemicals that my Dad could use on his US based farm only for grocery stores to start buying produce and crops grown in other countries with that very same chemical used on the crops. This inconsistency not only hurts the US economy but in the long run hurts the world. We need to be responsible stewards of our planet.
