Pollution is severe in the world's factory and smog afflicts many big cities. Construction and renovation can generate considerable noise pollution as can busy overground rail stations.

Pollution is severe in the world's factory and smog afflicts the big cities. And construction and renovation make China a noisy nation.
  
Beijing, by some accounts, is the most polluted city in the world. 16 of the worst-polluted cities in the world are in China. Even the countryside, depending on the province in question, is not immune. The nature of air pollution makes it highly variable from day to day, depending on the weather. On days with strong wind or rain, the sky will be clear of any pollution. In general, air pollution is worst in the north. Coastal cities such as Shanghai will have better air quality, and pollution is worse during the winter than in the summer. High-altitude locations and plains like parts of Yunnan and Sichuan, Xinjiang, Inner Mongolia, Tibet and outlying islands such as Hainan usually have good air quality. [[Shenzhen]]'s policy of electrifying the entire bus and taxi fleet makes a very noticeable difference compared to smogged cities like Beijing and Wuhan.
