Article
Understanding how the lay public judge air pollution is of high significance for creating effective pollution control targets in China. Emotion theories have great potential to advance relevant knowledge. Taking advantage of an environmental psychophysiological experiment in Nanjing, China, this study uncovers the underlying mechanism of why Chines...
Article
Air pollution has caused degraded visibility and gray cityscape in many developing countries. Though this visual change affects daily life from various aspects, there still lacks evidence on how it influences human psychological and physiological wellbeing. Based on a psychophysiological experiment, this study found that degraded cityscape caused b...

China has pledged to cap its carbon emission by 2030 and achieve carbon neutrality by 2060, making knowledge about how the Chinese general public understands climate change crucial and timely. This article reports findings from surveys of climate change perceptions in six Chinese cities (∼40 million people). We identify 10 distinct mental images an...
Article
Issuing early heat warnings and enhancing public climate change awareness and engagement are important local policy options for heat wave adaptation. Here, we used a laboratory experiment to inform major gaps in making these two policies, including setting proper thresholds for heat alerting systems and figuring out how heat experience shifts indiv...

Pollution exacerbates a region's water scarcity by making water unfit for different uses and reducing freshwater availability. Local water scarcity may lead to economic output losses, and the risk can be transmitted to downstream sectors through reduced input supplies. Previous studies focus on quantity-based water scarcity assessment. It is still...

A growing number of studies have shown that impaired visibility caused by particulate matter pollution influences emotional wellbeing. However, evidence is still scant on how this effect varies across individuals and over repetitive visual exposure in a controlled environment. Herein, we designed a lab-based experiment (41 subjects, 6 blocks) where...
Presentation
Communities face unprecedented risks due to climate change including coastal and inland flooding due to rising sea levels and precipitation. Studies demonstrate that some communities are especially vulnerable due to socio-economic and demographic status. Another crucial but understudied risk is climate change denialism, in that some individuals and...
Article
As a core channel of China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), trade has great potential of boosting the economy but also triggers arguments about environmental impacts. However, the evidence for ecologically unequal exchange embodied in trade between China and BRI countries is rarely discussed. Based on the multiregional input–output analysis, we in...
Article
The avenues through which booming social media information provision reshape public environmental risk perceptions remained unclear. The release of a documentary titled “Under the Dome – Investigating China’s Smog” in mainland China on February 2015 provides a natural experiment to fill the gap. In the experiment, the public was randomly divided in...
Article
Municipal solid waste (MSW) incineration has developed rapidly in China. However, the air pollution-related health risks attributable to MSW incinerators are still far from known. In this context, an MSW incineration emission inventory was compiled using plant-level activity data and localized emission factors. Subsequently, Gaussian plume model an...
