Foreign Correspondents Ep. 116 - The problem of fine dust pollution
The world declares war with fine dust as air pollution poses a growing threat to human health

South Korea has been blanketed by clouds of fine dust, with temperature drops in November being accompanied by a series of fine dust advisories and warnings that have been issued in the country. In response, the South Korean government has adopted emergency measures, including a reduction in the number of vehicles on the road and restrictions on diesel car operations. Many other countries across the world have also been grappling with the fine dust issue, prompting new measures to reduce the growing level of air pollution. Fine dust has also been categorized as a grade 1 human carcinogen by the World Health Organization, adding a growing a sense of urgency to the situation. Some members of the South Korean public believe that the bulk of the country's fine dust air pollutants originate from China, prompting an environmental activist group to file a lawsuit against both the Beijing and Seoul governments. So, who should shoulder the responsibility of the globe's fine dust problem and how should it be tackled? In this week's edition of "Foreign Correspondents", we sit down with our panel of journalists to discuss this issue in more detail.
