Take a Deep Breath of Chinese Air

Less than a month to the Olympics and Beijing is faced with (cough, cough) a level of pollution that can be more than six times the recommended dosage. To solve the problem, China intends to

  1. halve the number of cars–using odd and even license plates
  2. stop all construction, even spray painting
  3. shut down factories in the surrounding cities

Not to be cynical, but I wonder how the Chinese media will handle this one?

The architecture is truly amazing. Take a peek. Seeing it clearly may be a problem, however.
