Beijing Brings in Cleaner Buses to Cut Air Pollution
The Chinese capital will buy about 14,000 greener buses to replace two-thirds of Beijing’s bus fleet and halve carbon emissions.
Air pollution in Beijing hit record levels in January, measuring 38 times the level recommended by the World Health Organizations, Reuters reports.
Earlier this month air pollution in Shanghai delayed or cancelled hundreds of flights. The poor air quality on Dec. 6 also caused the Shanghai government to issue the highest level of public health warning as the Chinese city’s pollution index ranged between 23 times and 31 times the recommended levels.
