China’s rapid economical growth is threatening the integrity and ecology of some natural ecosystems. The massive industrialization of the region has bring an increase of pollutant emissions that are rich in nitrogen.
Some scientist from the China’s Fudan University and Nanjing University came up with this conclusion, after analyzing some samples taken from East Chins Sea. They found that the winds carried an overabundance of nutrients into the sea where they are taken up by certain marine organisms like plankton that thrive on those extra nutrients and growth in great numbers; some of them causing depletion of oxygen and some other toxins-related problems.
These two environmental issues need to be reversed or at least diminished so a local problem should not be globalized and avoid irreversible natural damages.
