Heavy Pollution filled and covered the Chinese capital on Sunday, Even though tight traffic restrictions were in effect for over a week. With the Olympic games starting August 8th, pollution remains a question on people's minds.
Du Shaozhong, deputy director of the Beijing Municipal Environmental Protection Bureau, states that "Our job is to decrease the pollution as much as possible, but sometimes it is very common to have fog in Beijing at this time,"
Major efforts to lower pollution have included banning over 1 million cars, closing factories, and halting construction for a month, yet heavy pollution still remains. Experts in China are hoping for more winds to blow the pollution out of the city.
