>>> published by a journal of the national academy of sciences is blaming china for at least some of the air pollution on the american west coast . one professor from the university of california made the point that a lot of the manufacturing going on in china was outsourced in the first place from the u.s., so we're paying for it twice. while not all of l.a.'s smog problem can be blamed on another country. it is provable that pollutants are carried across the pacific by air currents aloft.
