ASIA SOCIETY TO LAUNCH CHINA POLLUTION TRACKING WEBSITE

There has been a lot of talk lately about air pollution in China, including some Chinese officials trashing the U.S. government for releasing their own version of the country’s air quality data. The reality is, after some improvement of air quality in Beijing around the 2008 Olympics, thick smog has again been covering the city more prominently than ever.

Building on a four-year foundation and photographical archive on Beijing Air, Asia Society’s Center on U.S.-China Relations has expanded and upgraded its air quality documentation to a new site, China Air Daily. The idea is simple: one picture a day of air quality in comparable cities (Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Hong Kong, New York, Chicago and Phoenix). The site is easy to navigate, user-friendly, and includes satellite images of the cities courtesy of NASA.
