Short summary
The variability of the autumn Arctic sea ice extent, local precipitation and surface wind during winter is most influential to the haze pollution change in eastern China. The joint effect of fast increase of total energy consumption, rapid decline of Arctic sea ice extent and reduced precipitation and surface winds intensified the haze pollution in central North China after 2000. There is similar conclusion for haze pollution in eastern South China after 2000.
