It's not that bad in the photos. I've lived through days when you couldn't see across the river.

As a corollary, it would be just as much of a sensation if Shanghai decided to build a German-style neighbourhood. Deviations from the norm cause sensations; it is independent of what the norm is.

True. At least in Shanghai you can have a clear sky if you get up early enough :-) Smog didn't fall down before 9 or 10am when I was there. I've been to Henan province for 2 weeks and didn't get to see blue sky once ! Best I had was maybe 1km visibility and people were considering this a good day...

Thank you General Huo for the updates :-) Nice to see something else than SWFC for once ;-)

I think it's quite difficult to make it squared
Anyway, I think it was cancelled even a long time before the top design was changed.

Is it me or the Shangai Pearl Tower the best in the world? I think it makes Shangai's skyline that much more futuristic.

I think it's just you, for some reason half the people say the tower ruins the skyline.

I really like the Pearl. Those round observation areas are awesome. Too bad about the redesign cause there would have been a very interesting relationship between the Oriental Pearl and SWFC.

I have read in several different places that the Chinese Gov't is planting millions of trees to help reduce the amount of pollution before the Olympics. I hope they have other plans other than just planting trees.

I think I've heard somewhere that just last year, the Chinese government decided to focus more on "quality" economic growth rather than "quantity." I don't quite remember where I read the article, but I think it mentioned that the Chinese government is reducing growth in the heavy industry sector, resulting in a slightly lower (by about 1 or 2 percent lower) ecomonic growth target for this year (at least in the more developed areas like Shanghai and other large cities). Has anyone else heard about this? Anymore has more info?
----------
[edit]
I just found the article, don't know anything about the credibility of this site, but it seems ok. Sound promising though:

yeah pollution is a pretty big problem in china, when i went there this summer i was told that i was a combination of smog and humidity. air quality has gone down drastically in the last 20 some years, but i'm sure that they are moving them away from city centers
