Heavy Smog Choking China
Choking smog in the Chinese capital is prompting authorities to cough up more than usual. It’s coming clean on just how dangerous the pollution is.
FOX News Radio’s Alastair Wanklyn reports from Tokyo:
Beijing residents report a choking haze from cars, trucks and factories.
First the U.S. Embassy put out hourly pollution warnings. China’s government didn’t like that, but now it’s following suit, releasing hourly readings for 70 cities nationwide.
Moreover, the government is talking about the problem publicly, when the smog is really bad even urging Beijing residents to stay indoors to protect their health.
Such openness is prompting some there to say it’s like the winds of change are blowing through. But it’s not enough to sweep away the smog: so far the government’s stopped short of banning all polluters.
