Air pollution in China changing US weather patterns?


BEIJING, CHINA (WIAT) — Air pollution in Asia could be changing weather patterns in the United States, according to a theory from a researcher at NASA.

He released a study saying the pollution may affect storm patterns over the Pacific Ocean, and that could be contributing to all of the popup winter weather the United States has seen recently.

In January, the air in Beijing was 18 times more hazardous than what’s recommended by the World Health Organization.
