In recent years, environmental pollution has increasingly threatened human survival and directly affected the quality of the population. In this regard, people pay more and more attention to environmental protection. After sustained high-speed economic growth, China has become the second largest economy in the world. However, the growth pattern of extensive economic for many years has also led to a series of problems such as low efficiency of resource utilization and serious environmental pollution. In this situation, we must pay attention to air pollution and other issues. Find out the main influencing factors of environmental pollution, provide a reasonable basis for the formulation of regional ecological construction and environmental protection goals and the coordinated development of social economy and ecological environment, and create a more comfortable environment for people.
