Re: Pollution in China
Pod sounds great, but it made me think of buying used books when I was in college. Some people thought they were saving time by only reading highlighted portions. They save time if the previous owner highlighted the correct information. Printing some books out of print with Pod is a great use of technology! Thanks

Re: Pollution in China
Print on demand is a printing technology and business process in which new copies of a book (or other document) are not printed until an order has been received, which means books can be printed one at a time. While build to order has been an established business model in many other industries, "print on demand" developed only after digital printing began, because it was not economical to print single copies using traditional printing technology such as letterpress and offset printing. Many traditional small presses have replaced their traditional printing equipment with POD equipment or contract their printing out to POD service providers. Many academic publishers, including university presses, use POD services to maintain a large backlist; some even use POD for all of their publications. Larger publishers may use POD in special circumstances, such as reprinting older titles that are out of print or for performing test marketing. Jack

Re: Masks for sale
Exactly Mary, that is why we and other consuming nations let China do our manufacturing, labor is cheap and lack of EPA rules and conditions are non existent.  As China's pollution levels rise, I'll bet our pollution levels over the same period have fallen due to polluting industries being moved over seas.  This would make for an interesting side by side comparison chart.

Frightening findings about northern cities
A new study reveals that pollution in northern Chinese cities has shaved at least 5 years off the typical lifespan.

Are we learning from this?

Re: Pollution in China
I visited Beijing in 2003 and they were tearing down hutong villages that used a coal stove to heat living areas.  They said this was being done to reduce the use of coal and the resulting pollution. Now they are building very tall highrises and driving more cars.  Perhaps they can utilize more electric cars.  I hope the air quality problems are resolved Beijing is such an historic and enjoyable place to visit with many ancient jewels.

Re: Masks for sale
"If we don't pay attention to environmental protection, in 10 years every one of us will be wearing gas masks and carrying oxygen tanks on the streets," Cheng told ABC News. "By that time, my canned fresh air will be a necessity for household," he predicts.

 

I believe that Chen has the right approach. He is both making a point, and _can_ make a profit.

 

Amazing.

Re: Masks for sale
Ha! Great pun -- whether it was intentional or not.

Air pollution has surely reached critical mass in China -- and it is serving to show us elsewhere what can and will happen to us too if we don't take action.
