Probably server issues again. It happens all of the forum now and then.

One new mega tower for Shanghai. The central supertalls are getting more and more remarkable.

Trees don't solve smog issues. Not driving cars solve these issues. If everthing is in some "garden" along a giant highway, there will be smog. Only vast forests can clean up the emissions from cars and factories. If you want the city to have less smog, move industry away from it and make the city walkable so fewer people drive cars. Greenery in an urban setting does not solve the problem of smog. If it did Pudong would have no smog now.

Clearly the smog issues in some Chinese cities are not caused by high car usage. Thousands of cities around the world have more cars than most Chinese cities and are yet less polluted. The factories are the main cause of the air quality in Chinese urban areas. As soon as the West starts outsourcing its pollution to other countries and start leaving China, then the issue will probably be gone.

Plus all the construction sites. There are so many in (Eastern) China, often you can see and feel the dust in the air.

So, where the factories around LOS Angeles at?

Smog in chinese cities is mainly caused by cars and people using coal as heating in winter. That's it. The primary culprit is vehicles, just like everywhere else.

Cities on the coast have cleaner air for obvious reasons, but I can tell you, as a resident of Sydney, we get days of nasty smog as well, literally thick yellow smog.

This has grown very faste since last time I visited this thread!. How come they only put up steel on some floors and not on others?

its a combination - cities like Beijing suffer from coal burning, 4 million cars and notorious dust storms from the hinterland steppe and Gobi desert, not far away. Its building the worlds largest metro (alongside Shanghai), but its development strategy has been very different to Shanghai's.


Shanghai is much less carcentric and greener, much less reliant on coal in bitter winters and with newer housing stock - but suffers from the fact its the 'head of the dragon' - its hinterland is a vast factory for the world made up of manufacturing towns and thousands of factories. Basically all the prime Chinese megacities are surrounded or preceded by vast manufacturing areas that have powered their riches - HK, Guangzhou, Shenzhen via the Pearl River Delta, Chongqing via the new industrial epicentre now forming as its far cheaper inland, Shanghai, Nanjing, Hangzhou via the Yangzte River Delta (Connected by the river to the other anchor of Chongqing).

In other words neighbouring Beijing and Tianjin have all the problems but alot of their pollution also comes from the city limits (cars, coal burning, inner city industry), whereas the other warmer, coastal megacities have their smog problems coming from the surrounding industrial hinterlands.

Believe me there is a big difference between the smog in LA and the smog in Chinese Cities. I have been to Shanghai and Guangzhou and live in LA. If you compare the smog of these cities with LA of the 1940s through the 60s it will be much more accurate but currently LA has a better air quality than those two cities.
