Natural gas shortages during the "coal-to-gas" transition in China have caused a large redistribution of air pollution in winter 2017

Abstract : Improving air quality is an important driving force for China's move toward clean energy and the extensive implementation of the "coal-to-gas" policy. Our analysis shows, however, that a shortage of natural gas during the implementation of the action in northern China has led to the transfer of pollution emissions and deterioration of air quality for large areas and populations in southern China during winter 2017. Our finding highlights the importance and necessity of synergy between environmental and energy policymaking to address the grand challenge of an actionable future to achieve the cobenefits of air quality, human health, and climate.
