Beijing Smog Returns After Olympics

The Daily Telegraph reports that the lifting of smog restrictions in Beijing came as a cloud of grey smog descended.

“…many drivers were already breaching the regulations on Saturday in advance of the midnight end to the rules, under which cars were banned from the city streets on alternate days depending on whether their license plates ended with an odd or even number.

Yesterday hundreds of heavily polluting factories that had to cut or stop production for the two months were also allowed to resume normal work. Many pledged to increase output to make up for losses caused by the shutdown.”
