Action Needed On Pollution

Updated on Aug 02, 2008 – SCMP

I have been shocked by some of the extreme weather conditions in Hong Kong.

The pollution index record was broken earlier this week (“Blackest day yet for air pollution”, July 28).

I can still remember the Action Blue Sky campaign television commercials last year, but I have seen no positive results.

Our government reported a substantial financial surplus. I wonder how much of this sum will be spent on environmental protection.

Officials are always saying that they won’t forget about the needs of their citizens, that they care about rising inflation and other important issues.

However, do they really care about our environment? They must appreciate that clean air is a necessity for Hong Kong people.
