China's carbon emissions could be nearly 20 percent higher than previously thought, a new analysis of official Chinese data showed on Sunday, suggesting the pace of global climate change could be even faster than currently predicted.

Delegates converged Sunday for the grand finale of two years of tough, sometimes bitter negotiations on a climate change treaty, as U.N. officials calculated that pledges offered in the last few weeks to reduce greenhouse gases put the world within reach of keeping global warming under control.

Even the best of days in Beijing are more bad than anything ever seen in my hometown.  If I would ever move to China one day it would hardly be for the environment.

Your Western imperialist hyena with blood soaked jaws and fangs camera seems to have dust in the lens as there is no way the air is like that in China. It is a filthy CIA/BBC/Jewish lie.

I been to CHina severals time, but I never see the bad air like this. You are exaggeration and tries ...

Those photos were actually posted on China Daily a few weeks ago.  And just because 1 town gets rid of motorbikes does not help the air.  That same town probably has buses and trucks that are a lot worse.
