Beijing Air Is Not Okay Yet

World Journal, Posted: Jul 30, 2008

BEIJING Since last October, the Chinese government has invested 120 billion RMB (about 18 billion USD) to improve the environment for the Olympics, including the citys air quality. Although in the first two days in July, the air quality reached the WHO standard, reports Greenpeace, they also said Beijing has not done enough to clean up the environment. Experts have suggested that Beijing stop construction and close factories and other facilities that could pollute the air. If the air quality still doesnt improve, 90 percent of vehicular traffic should be removed from the streets, suggest environmentalists.
