The passage I read was ¨ The Filth They Breathe in China¨ by Micheal Auslin. It spoke about the horrid air quality in China. The main idea of this passage is how the country of China has such terrible air and pollution problems that is causing deaths and illnesses.
A sentence in the passage quotes ¨ ... pollution levels hovering over 12 times recommend...¨. This for sure made me see how bad it is. Another sentence from the passage is ¨... only 1 percent of China´s urban dwellers breathe safe air.¨ That sentence was also very surprising.
In conclusion the passage was very informal. It said all the facts about the air in China, and made other parts of the world not want to get their air quality to get that bad.
