BEIJING


"Beijing calculates a daily air pollution index from 1 to 500 based on measures of four pollutants. Days on which the index is under 100 are said to be acceptable. The Chinese government claims that air quality has greatly improved since 2001 when Beijing won its bid to host the Games with promises to clean up the local atmosphere. In that period, Beijing has tightened emission standards and built four new subway lines." -LA Times article


The big shocker for me that quote wasnt the pollution, but that Beijing has built four subway lines in the last 7 years.



Upcycle, please.
