Beijing is one of the world's most polluted cities and vehicle emissions from more than three million cars are chiefly to blame for poor air quality, which represents one of the biggest challenges to the successful staging of the Games.
International Olympic Committee chief Jacques Rogge has warned that endurance events, such as the marathon, may be postponed to protect athletes from the effects of pollution.
Read the whole thing. I've even had folks tell me that China doesn't have a pollution problem yet so we have to cut them a lot of slack. That's nuts! We need to be on China like flies on **** dogging them every minute of the day to clean up their act. Why, oh why, are the environmentalists worried about us drilling for oil and not screaming at the Chinese to stop drilling for oil and to look at "alternative energy"?
