Da jia hao! Hello, all, I am new here, and I'm thinking of going to China to teach English for one year. My biggest concern is air pollution. I'm trying to find out which cities are the most polluted. I just spent about three hours searching on the Internet, and couldn't find any web sites that list current air pollution information on Chinese cities. Plus, I found a lot of conflicting information.

Does anybody know of such a website? Ideally, I could get a list of *all* of the major cities in China, and see how they rank.

Alternatively, does anybody know how bad the pollution is in Hanzhong, Jinan, and/or Guiyang?

Apologies if this has been asked before -- I did a quick search here on this forum, and didn't see anything exactly matching my question.

I presume Taiyuan is the worst among all, worse than Guangzhou and Xi'an.

GUEST04113 Most Chinese cities are terribly polluted. Anyone who has asthma or regular respiratory problems should AVOID CHINA LIKE THE PLAGUE. Very little has changed over the last few years, except for car exhausts replacing the now modernized private coal heatings. It's a great country for many different reasons but they are truly wrecking the environment.
