2h8Q788zdM5274_200x255.shkl.jpg Aaah… snus ind. Der er partikler i luften. Igen.

De Olympiske Lege har forladt byen, og dermed er luftforureningen også kommet tilbage. Skønt. Mine asfalterede lunger kunne slet ikke finde ud af den alt for rene luft under OL.

Men nu er vi ved at være tilbage til det normale igen (inklusiv fødevareskandaler). Se her.

På en slem dag er luftforureningen på H. C. Andersens Boulevard, der er en af de mest trafikerede gader i København, oppe på omkring 25 API.

Under OL lå API her i Beijing sådan omkring de 50-70 stykker.

Og nu er den igen oppe på 120-140 API, som man kan se på Beijings bureau for miljøbeskyttelse.

Men lokalregeringen i Beijing vil fortsætte med at kæmpe mod forureningen, som AFP skriver (i et telegram hvor linket er forsvundet):

From Wednesday, 30 per cent of government vehicles would be taken off the roads, the municipal government announced yesterday on its website.

From October 11, the remaining government vehicles and all private cars would be banned from the city’s roads for one day each week, depending on their number plates.

The measures were intended to “reduce the impact of vehicle emissions on air quality and maintain basic transport order”, the government said.

News.sohu.com skriver, at det er en prøveperiode på seks måneder.

Ja, det skal jo nok hjælpe. Især når hundreder af fabrikker, støberier og kulkraftværker, der var lukkede under OL, igen er begyndt at pumpe røg ud af skorstene.

Der er også andre problemer, som Times skriver:

As some scientists predicted last summer, the car restrictions played a big part in providing blue skies during the Olympics. But what worked then, when the whole nation was preparing for such a pivotal event, is unlikely to work when everyone is going back to life as usual. Previously I mentioned Mexico City’s car restrictions, which were found to have little to no effect on air pollution. The problem was that once the rules became a semi-permanent way of life, people found ways around them, like buying a second-hand car. During the Olympics TIME’s Beijing bureau used our old Jeep, which rarely sees the road in normal times, on days when our usual ride was restricted. Xinhua’s story announcing the new rules even quotes a driver who says he will probably buy a second car to pick up his daughter on Fridays, the day his vehicle will be banned.
