Welcome to Pollution-China.com
Thursday, 30 November 2006, Written by Julien   
The aim of this website is to deal with pollution in China and how to live with it.

We all know that pollution is everywhere in China: air, water, soil, food... And we all know that this pollution has an impact on our life and our health. That's a fact, but what? Should we flee away or should we live in bunkers, eating can food and drinking imported water???

I'm sure that there are other options, to keep living in China and still not altering too much our life expectancy. That's the scope of this website: Talking about pollution, but in a proactive way.

Since february 2008, we not only talk about pollution, we also act: We bring solutions to the market, solutions for protecting our health, solutions for reducing our impact!

Feel free to give your comments and share your own solutions.

For those of us who (still) like to bike in Beijing, we're REALLY concerned about how coal, exhaust pipes and dust are clogging up our respiratory systems... Keep us posted on how to deal with that! Congrats for this new initiative and good luck :)

I have a question. If farmers farmlands were sold despite of farmers disagreement,to build factories like eletroplating, if farmers all signed 'DO NOT AGREE' to sell the last piece of lands, but they were taken by force and false papers anyway, can u believe will there be anybody, any government body to check those factories' emission controls? Without even a water company, local people drink directly-drawn underground water. Who cares for them the water and food safty?

You are right that local pollution caused by "illegal" factories is a big issue. I regularly read stories about farmers protesting against this kind of practices.
I remember that two years ago SEPA set up local branches to be more independent from local governments (see the article). I do not know if there has been any major factory shut down since then.

Bonjour,

Je souhaite passer commande d'un masque, mais en ai été retenu pour le moment par un message d'alerte de mon navigateur, affirmant que le certificat du site ( *.station185.com ) n'est pas reconnu.

Je n'ose pas donner mes coordonnées bancaires sur ce site, sachant que le hacking est un sport national en Chine.

Pouvez-vous m'informer (et me rassurer) sur ce point?

Par ailleurs, les masques sont-ils livrés avec un jeu de filtres?

Merci d'avance.

Cher Henri, ce message d'erreur est normal. Le site .station185.com est le serveur hébergeant le site et pour lequel le certificat est émis. Vous n'avez pas d'inquiétudes à avoir.
Oui, les masques sont livrés avec un filtre.

Bonjour Julien,
J'aimerais pouvoir ajouter sur mon blog un encadré comme le votre, avec la comparaison des niveaux de pollutions entre Pékin et les autres villes. Pourriez vous m'indiquer comment faire?
Merci

Bonjour Julien,
Tout d'abord, félicitation pour ton action il fallait se lancer et toi tu la fait chapeau. Pour ma formation j'ai un projet de création d'entreprise fictive à réaliser avec deux autres personnes (dont un chinois).Nous avions eu l'idée de commercialiser des masques anti-pollution en chine. En faisant des recherches je me suis apperçu que toi t'avais déja eu l'idée et que tu avais plutôt bien débuté. Alors si s'était possible d'avoir quelques conseil de ta part ça pourait être sympa.je te laisse mon mail: kaz_56@hotmail.fr
Merci

Bonjour,

Interesting blog over a very sensitive issue.

I have 3 concerns about your site:

1. You make money selling masks? If yes, then your incentive is to predict doom and gloom?

2. Beijing is much more than the city center.

Is the air really that bad outside the city in the mountain districts? Worse than e.g. France?

= Make a clear distinction between beijing city and greater beijing, and balance that judgement by clearly defining which "Beijing" you are talking about

3. I ride my bike every day in Beijing:

is the health benefit of sports, even in Beijing, not greater than the health injuries of not doing sports, being sedantary, eating too much, hearth disease due to inactive lifestyle...etc?

Salut,

Dear Tom,
thanks for expressing your concerns. Here below are a few explanations:
1/ I do make money selling masks but I try to be as objective as possible. I do not say everything is black or white. I try to describe this "grey" situation.
2/ I always take official pollution figures for Beijing. They include greater Beijing and are the average over the municipality.
3/ I myself do a lot of sport in Beijing. However I do not recommend jogging at night next to ring roads :) One should take into account the pollution when doing sport in Beijing.
See you
Julien
