beijing air quality

US cyclists arrive in China wearing face marks to filter out the air pollution and need to apologise. Of course the local cyclists do it too. Whose idea was it to hold a sporting contest in a place where the conditions are so unsuited to it? Ride a bicycle and breathe car fumes. This is as ironic as a Quit campaigner dying from passive smoking. I am becoming eco-pathological. (Marvellous top photo by Natalie Behring)
