Beijing Puts up 35 New Air Quality Monitoring Stations

After much pressure from citizens and the international community, Beijing has completed 35 new air-quality monitoring stations. Now with 50 monitors, the city can measure a smaller particulate in the air, which was previously left out of official air quality data. Air particulates of PM 2.5 or less are considered the most dangerous because they can get into the lungs and cause severe health problems. These particulates come from things like industrial production, coal burning, vehicle emission and solvents.The Chinese regime attacked US authorities in June for doing independent readings from its embassy in Beijing. The US measured the dangerous PM 2.5 particulates, which until January, Beijing did not. It accused the US of using unfair standards to judge the air quality because the US has higher environmental standards.While the Beijing government is now publishing data on the dangerous particulates, it admits the “annual intensity of PM 2.5 still doubles the cap set by WHO.”
