January has witnessed thick smog dominated 1.3 million square kilometres of China (see the attached pic). Less than a week will come Chinese New Year Eve - at that time, traditionally a nationwide firework display will be staged. Now the question is: will Chinese people ignore the warning of NATURE and continue to worsen the murky skies of their country with the highly air-polluting spectacle?
The approaching New Year will be an important test stone for the sense of reason in Chinese people. For my part, I hope the poeple will find an alternative way to celebrate the festival. I also hope that you people around the world will keep an eye on China to remind them to reform the old-fashioned tradition. A China with clean air is what we expect. We're living in a global village, after all.
