Reply To: Hong Kong suffers Chronic Air Pollution


Back in late July, the Hong Kong Government announced the Action Blue Sky campaign, with the natty English slogan “Clean Air for a Cool Hong Kong” (which means what, exactly, in this sub-tropical locale? – if the air is cleaner, will we move towards the Arctic? Or maybe we’ll be much more laid back, just like, wow, man, so coool).

Reading info on the campaign, seems there’s plenty of talk – trying to persuade various people that reducing pollution is a good idea. But precious little action.
Lately seen report re Advisory Committee on the Environment meeting, and fudging n dilly-dallying over new Air Quality Objectives.

Small wonder then that, as get return of northeast monsoon, also get return of skies that too often aren’t blue, but greyish-white. Bleah!
