In this paper, I investigate the general formatted formula of the Environ-mental Kuznets Curve and develop a hypothesis at the same time. I useChina Prefecture City level panel data on Industrial Sulfur Dioxide, Dark Par-ticles, and Waste Water emissions to estimate several Environmental KuznetsCurves. I use the parametric method and semi-parametric method at the sametime. The Smoke and waste water emission’s results of two methods do notmatch each other. In contrast, sulfur dioxide, are economically signiﬁcant andcoincident between two approaches.
