One nation’s pollution can bring severe consequences in other countries. Wind and water are some of the elements of weather which have no respect for the set boundaries. The contamination of one country can quickly become another nation’s source of environmental as well as economic crisis. Since the environmental pollution problem originates from one geographical boundary and ends in another, solving it will require diplomacy as well as the international relationship. As such, the local people who are mainly affected by the consequences of the occurrence are left without options. They have to wait for directions from the international relation bodies. China and Asia give an excellent example of such a phenomenon since pollution from industries in China results into environmental issues that are serious to people in Japan as well as South Korea. The Chinese people continue expanding their economy through investment as well as the opening of new industries which leads to an increase in the environmental cost (Crossley-Frolick 68). Pollution in China threatens the environment as well as the public health of the nearby countries. Mount Zao in Japan is famously known for its ice trees, the ecosystem supporting it along with the tourists they attract face danger from the acids released from the factories in China. The acids form as a result of sulfur released from the factories which then reacts with water from surrounding rivers and humidity which then get carried by the wind or the flowing water across seas in Japan. Some schools in Japan have opted to close, and others suspend lessons because of the dangerous smog coming from the industries in China. Sandstorms triggered by human beings through deforestation also pose a danger to both tourists as well as animals in Gobi desert. Another example of environmental pollution was when a chemical plant spilled Benzene to Songhua, thus contaminating the Russian Cities’ drinking water. After the spill, environmental ministers from the affected countries agreed to look for possible solutions to the problem. One of the goals of the meeting was to develop treaties governing cross-border pollution of the air. Other nations such as Europe and North America have similar agreements, but the one between China and Japan is slow and inevitable due to political issues (Sypris et al., 411). A balance between economic growth and environmental conservation is a challenge to many countries and therefore, China is not alone in their struggle to find a workable solution to the problem. In its push to become one of the super economic powers in the world, Japan created severely polluted water and air. The situation in Japan improved with the imposition of environmental rules and regulations. The United States in its effort to ensure environmental sustainability in the Pacific placed long-term ecological benefits along with short-term economic gains.
