NASA has released some pretty interesting images that show the concentration of air pollution in the atmosphere. You can easily see that compared to rest of the world, parts of Africa, the Middle East, and China have the most pollution. Not even in urban environments like New York, LA, or Chicago produce as much pollution. Although, if you were to just look at the map of America, you’d see quite a few red areas.
