Abstract
In recent years, the government has adopted a series of measures to control air pollution, and the atmospheric environment quality has been improved. However, the environmental air quality in China is still not ideal. In this paper, constructs a regression model based on the EKC hypothesis, and builds a Tapio decoupling model based on the decoupling theory. The relationships between atmospheric pollutants and GDP are analyzed by using thses two methods. The atmospheric pollutants include SO2, NOx and CO2. In the regression model, the quantitative relationship between atmospheric pollutants and GDP is established, and the characteristics and differences between the pollutants and GDP are analyzed. Also, the decoupling relationship between atmospheric pollutants and economic growth is analyzed by using decoupling model. Then, the mutual verification of these different methods are launched. On this basis, the new situation of air pollution in China under the background of ecological civilization construction is analyzed. At last , policy suggestions are put forward.
