Beijing says smog looks worse than it is
« on: July 27, 2008, 12:22:52 PM »
BEIJING - The haze that stubbornly cloaks China's capital in the run-up to the Summer Olympics looks worse than it really is, two senior officials asserted Saturday.

The officials referred to the gray haze over the city as ''fog'' and ''dust'' but refrained from calling it air pollution.

A daily air pollution index in China's capital has actually gotten worse in the week since city officials ordered more than 1 million cars off the streets and staggered office hours as part of an unprecedented anti-pollution campaign to clear the air for the Aug. 8-24 Olympics.
