Unimpressed By Anti-Pollution Measures

Most people unimpressed by anti-pollution measures: poll

SCMP – 7th January 2009

About 80 per cent of people polled by the Democratic Party found government measures to clean up the air either ineffective or only slightly effective. In interviews of more than 500 people from December 29 to Monday by telephone, it was found that only 12 per cent said the measures were effective. Nearly half felt that air pollution was now even worse than in the previous two years. The poll also found that the air-pollution sources needing to be addressed most urgently was transport, followed by cross-boundary emissions and power plants. More than a third of respondents also said schools should be closed at times of serious air pollution.
