ZHANG WEI/CHINA DAILYThis years worst air pollution in Beijing once again demonstrated the necessity for China to address its environmental challenges with immediate and unprecedented efforts.For a vast developing country like China to succeed in the war against pollution, it requires not only firm and long-term government commitments to reduce all kinds of pollutants but also efforts to rally as much public support as possible.Chinese cities such as Beijing, which have benefited a lot from the countrys rapid urbanization and industrialization over the past decades, are therefore obliged to blaze a trail in mobilizing and making the most efficient use of their resources to cut pollution and minimize the environmental damage.Unfortunately, the clumsy and inadequate response of local officials to tackle the persistent toxic air that soared above hazardous levels for several days in Beijing indicates the country still has much to do to make itself a smart fighter in the environment crisis.The arrival of a cold front on Tuesday night may have answered the wishes of the 20-plus million residents who desperately wanted the hazardous smog that had engulfed the city for days to go, but it is proving an uphill struggle to tackle the causes.The explanation offered by the Beijing Municipal Environmental Monitoring Center that increased use of coal for heating during winter and an unfortunate combination of weather conditions that helped trap pollutants closer to the ground have been the main factors behind the frightening levels of PM2.5, airborne particles that measure less than 2.5 microns in diameter.Previous Page1 2 Next PagePrevious Page1 2 Next Page0Related StoriesBeijing gets back its blue sky as heavy pollution disappearsViolators of dust-control regulation add to air pollutionBeijing, Tianjin and Hebei brace for another round of severe pollutionAmid severe smog, Beijing orders halt to productionMost Viewed Todays Top NewsHousing booms may hurt, not heal, local growthTime to break free of protectionist shacklesAllow space for students to discover themselvesPhilippines arbitration case built on false pretextFunding global public goods for worlds recoveryForum TrendsTips to manage stress when studying abroadWhy are Chinese students heading to the US?Should investment lessons be mandatory?How can doctors and patients regain trust?Are women-only buses discriminatory?Do student evaluations measure teaching effectiveness?What annoys you most while traveling in China?ColumnistsTrumps willingness to talk to the DPRK is the right approachFestival drama peels layers of character who isnt thereFeatured ContributorsTurnball highlights China-Australia FTA as a valuable assetBloody curtain rising to greet US first-ever presidentStar BloggersMy best friend in China: 35th anniversary of China Daily By subeChina Daily is like a friend who stays with me in every mood in my life.
