Here is a photo of a bright color video screen in Tiananmen Square, Beijing on a recent dangerous day of very high pollution levels. Today the Beijing government announced emergency measures to reduce the heavy smog that has overwhelmed the city. The measures include the temporary shutdown of 100 factories and halting one third of the government vehicles from driving on the streets. Estimates now state that there are some 5 million automobiles in Beijing. There were approximately 3 million autos in the capital in 2008. China's Communist Party has praised Beijing as a showcase capital, but until now has never addressed the city's pollution problems.
