Smog becomes major concerns for migrants

03-07-2014 20:38 BJT Special Report: 2014 NPC & CPPCC Sessions |

This week’s blue skies, sunshine and much cleaner air in Beijing, have brought us much needed relief from yet another period of oppressive smog this winter. Of course Beijing’s bad air still has everyone complaining and thinking about the question we asked on our Sina Weibo account: will you go or will you stay? Will the smog force you to leave the big city or will you find a way to tolerate it?

One respondent wrote that she wants to stay in the capital, but the air is just too terrible. She plans to return to her home town where the air is far better.

Another respondent plans to remain in Beijing because the air pollution in his home town is even worse than Beijing’s.

As for native Beijingers -- they complained they had little choice but to stay. Some respondents recalled the improved air quality during the 2008 Olympic games.

Another respondent, who intends to stay, said it’s time for people to stop complaining and do their part to help curb emissions.
