Still the littering problem doesn't strike me as a major issue per - say, but it does lead into a major issue. I sense, and I may be wrong, that locals in the rural counties are angry so they dump debris where ever they want. I assume they feel they have no political representation.

Last week in Taiwan, there was a dust storm with pm2 readings spiking to 100+ in Taoyuan and Hsinchu counties. Yet no mention on this in Taipei Times nor in my Taiwanese wife Yahoo news. It was obviously bad. So why are farmers in the fields burning debris and adding to it? 2 friends contacted me with health problems that were air pollution / dust related.
My wife tells me don't say anything, the farmers will think you are angry at them. (I was. But I try to approach strangers with a smile.) Still the problem persists everywhere and based on the Chinese Farmer almanac.
Why on earth do farmers burn debris when air pollution levels are over 100? So this is an example of a serious problem to me because it influences the publics health.
