Nothing But “Blue skies” From Now On

Zhu Zhe reports in the China Daily:

Beijing is enjoying its cleanest air for 10 years and the blue skies are set to continue long after the Olympics, a top environment official said Tuesday.

On nine of the past 18 days the air was of the very highest quality, while on the others it was rated “fairly good”, Du Shaozhong, deputy director of the Beijing environmental protection bureau, told a press conference.

The average daily air pollution index (API) over the 18 days was 56, far below the 81 reported for last year, he said.
