I know that Chinese dust storm season is March – May so it could be yellow dust but I can’t find any specific information. Usually the news around here makes a big deal about it. There was a large storm in China on April 23rd, but our dust washed out beofre that plus it takes a about a week to get here. Would you like a sample?

Reportedly, US is responsible for 25% of the global CO2 production, which is greater than that of China together with the fact that we are closer to Europe than to China, it seems only reasonable to believe that we, US is polluting Europe more so than China to us. Then again, this kind of objective study would never be funded… not by the US agencies, unfortunately.

I would have thought that particulates from China would come down as rain before reaching the U.S., but it makes sense: clouds travel very far, and I suppose dust particles could be in those clouds?
