/ Opinion/ From the PressCurbing air pollution needs cooperationUpdated: 2013-10-18 21:51( chinadaily.com.cn)Comments Print Mail Large Medium  SmallAn emergency response plan has been approved to combat air pollution in Beijing. Just in time, says an editorial on Beijing News (excerpts below).
A yellow alert means that certain industrial corporations and construction will suspend work, while all fireworks will be prohibited and outdoor barbecues will be banned.
If a red alert is issued, an odd-even number ban on automobiles will be introduced, and kindergartens and school classes will be suspended.
These are some of the key measures of the new emergency response plan.
It comes just in time. Heavy air pollution is a disaster to public health, however, no single department or organization can deal with it alone.Currently many policies focus on air quality in the downtown areas, but fail to implement the same standards on the areas outside the Fifth Ring Road, where there are more industrial plants and heavier traffic. Residents in both downtown and outside areas are equal victims of air pollution; the new program needs stricter standards on the latter.8.03KRelated StoriesChina offers rewards for fighting air pollutionChina budgets funds to cut air pollutionBeijing combats air pollutionNetwork to monitor air pollution nationwideMost ViewedTodays Top NewsAn unthankful US dealSafeguard regional harmonyThe DPRK seesaw continuesCooperation on the Pacific horizonLesson from ousted mayorMoney is too tight to mentionDiplomatic gains in Southeast AsiaColumnistsWorld at the mercy of spin doctorsSwitching to a win-win mindsetmoreCartoonDebt-ceilingArafats death Obamas crisisAbes nuclear troubleSpecialStar bloggers on China DailyGlobal view on Chinas sessionsMichaelMBest age for starting English trainingliu5222512Papa in hospital (episode 1)AXLLiving in the UK……| About China Daily | Advertise on Site | Contact Us | Job Offer |Copyright 1995 -.
