Recently, the western media, or at least a handful of them, have started to hint that all of China is polluted, amid their intention backed up by their individual governments to attract a crowd from the general public into against China's fast development, a great many people have since graudually developed the impression that China is indeed polluted from every corner.

Talking about pollution, Shanghai is definitely not on the top list. Said that, pollution is indeed a very big problem facing other areas of China at the moment, but in terms of global warming, I really think that some other countries should do more because they have more resources and their people have already living a luxury life.

Great tower, and hope it gets built before schedule .

I think pollution is not a special phenomenon in a developing country
western countries have developed
so they can blame our developing countries of heavy pollutions
our government have payed attention on that
Notice the sky of Beijing
though it was not clear sometime
but we are obtaining more blue-sky-days year by year

In my opinion, Shanghai WFC will be one of the best skyscrapers in the world.
Good Work

Well, in terms of contribution per capita to global warming, we still lag far behind Germany; and in terms of the total contribution of the entire country, we still lag far behind the United States.

Although I do think the air quality in Shanghai is pretty bad, some people's pretentious and squeamish attitude still upsets my stomach. "I have asthma! I can't live in or even just visit big cities like LA or Shanghai!" Come on! Are you a spoiled rich teenage girl from Monaco or St. Tropez?

Industries happen to be located in China because of the great production capabilities and intelligence of the Chinese. But who are the Chinese plants producing for? Where are those products ending up to? The so-called west. So the real culprits are western consumers. We could add that a healthy 30 per cent of the factories located in China are owned by western corporations.

I love the first pic in post#672, even though it's apparently been PSed to the extreme! BTW, I think the SWFC is really changing the entire skyline of Pudong, isn't it?

Yes it does!

You're right about the pic, it's a bit flashy , but gives good detail, and good angle.

Older (by 8-10 days) shots from flickr, showing good construction details of core levels 88-89 and bracing for mass dampers:

Core seems to be at level 91, levels 88-89-90 being lower than the 3 previous ones.
