Though it isn't the largest city in China, the capital of the world's most populous country is still a very crowded place. With a population of 19.5 million and growing, Beijing is famous for a number of things--among them, its persisting pollution

I had a friend who spent six months in Beijing and swears he will never return.

Will China ever be able to reduce their pollution? It sound more and more unlikely.

Hey, if people want to gas themselves...by all means, go right ahead! The only problem I have with this is the indiscriminately killing of all living beings as a consequence!

air currents blow the pollution our way eventually...... it ends up affecting all of us to some degree even if we don't see it

Noted, tweeted, read, tweeted, tweeted, and shared. What does China have to worry about? We have great air and little pollution and we make lots of money for oil and coal. If they want to be like us; it's a small price to pay; isn't it?

Thanks Cher

Noted. You would think that China would be on the wind turbine/solar cell bandwagon. Instead of building nuclear or other power plants they would be better off having each building create it's own power.

Remember the Olympics. China shut down many of the polluting factories to help reduce
pollution and increase the quality of the air for the athletes. China still has not done much in its
efforts to improve the air quality. Witness people wearing masks. Even the Yellow River is so
polluted that aquatic beings, fish, cannot live nor survive in it.

Who would want to visit Beijing, mush less live there.

Ty, Cher.

Maybe if they start losing money from health and production losses, they'll wise up a bit. Nobody to blame but themselves. It's the innocent children and nature that suffers though.

Blame yourself China, choke on it. It is Mao's new way of killing the poor and the rich communists are somewhere safe. Kill the ants and you are dead, that is the future of the dieing Tiger.
