Beijing is trying to literally bring life back to a dying city.

Welcome to uncontrolled Capitalism. Seems like they have what LA had in the past. One can't keep going head long without thinking of the consequences to the actions and this is a world wide issue that all must address at some level or another.

Thank you for the news. Perhaps, the U.S. government will increase standards.

According to my friend it wasn't just the air quality it was everything including the crass, impolite people.
