in my opinion, freeze can be translated to 和风,but it's more formal, like if you are writing a book or speech, 和风is better, if you talk to someone, i'd say 微风,or 清风 or 轻风

again, it's only my opinion

back to topic, i dont really like beijing, i like my home town Dalian better, the weather in beijing is horrible, and the traffic, dont get me started,  i was in a cab from the airport to my mate's place, in rush hour it took the cab driver 30mins to drive 500 meters, im not joking, if some old people who 's in critical health condition, i wouldnt recomed them to live in beijing, because if , God forbid, anything happen to them, there is a good chance they couldnt make it to the hospital and struck in traffic and ........gone    %^T&&*^&*^**(&%

Here is a link to some data compiled by the World Bank on comparative air pollution levels:
http://devdata.worldbank.org/wdi2005/Table3_13.htm

Some comparisons for particulate matter, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen dioxide respectively:

Beijing                106,   90,   122
New York             23,    26,     79
Los Angeles       38,       9,     74
London - about the same as New York

Descriptions of Beijing's climate remind me of what Spaniards said about Madrid's climate, "seis meses de invierno y seis meses de infierno".  That is, "six months of winter and six months of hell".

Hmm. Great. Thanks.
How are all those people still alive in those polluted cities? Well, I've read a bit about Beijing moving some of its pollution elsewhere so hopefully those numbers will be down already and go down a bit each year.

Thanks for real.
I am not rich.  :L

Beijing is an international city. It has a lot of flavor but it is very overcrowded, too much pollution, and the sand storms that come off of the Gobi desert are terrible. Another reason for the poor air quality is because of all the construction. With the Olympics just around the corner, there is a lot of construction and renovation causing a lot of dirt and dust. There are other cities in China that offer the same kind of international flavor and better living conditions such as Dalian, Qingdao, and Shenzhen. Beijing has a lot of great sites..... Tiananment Square, Forbidden City, The Great Wall.... its a nice place to visit but living there has its drawbacks.
