VBS TV has just posted an amazing series on Lifen’s air pollution problems. Shot on scene over a week, this series will give you a clear representation of what challenges China’s growth has brought with it. Personally, while I have not been to Lifen, I have been to plenty of cities that are facing similar challenges, and it is distressing sometimes to get off a plane and literally be able to taste the products that a city produces.

In my mind, I am still scratching my head as to why Lifen and the other 15 cities on the most polluted list do not have programs in place to ensure that all the entities who play a role are being given assistance in paying for technologies, and are then being monitored to make sure they are using the technologies.

It is a problem that can be solved, and it is one that if left to continue will only get worse.With that being said, and with the finger pointed, I would like to also point out that there are solutions and that things are beginning to change, and western consumers themselves have a role in this as well.
