    POLLUTION: China's air quality and health

    Now Nanny-Staters would have us pay more at WalMart to finance pollution abatement in China. Sorry, not our problem.

    This should ease your concerns.

    Nothing in there about rising prices on imported goods from China due to anti-pollution tree-hugger nannyism.

    Where'd you get that? I read the article. It's about pollution in China, primarily Beijing. And how those who can afford it are leaving.

    New pollution restrictions in China will probably result in paying more for their products. But I don't see where nanny-staters and tree-huggers are a part of this story.

    They can be very sneaky.

    From what I understand, simple face masks like the one pictured are ineffective to most air pollution.

    The Chinese should look into trading in all of those cars for bikes. The cars that they bought will all the money we send over there.

    We're not supposed to just post articles- we must add original content. See PO forum style book.
