Thoughts about the relationships between transport and the urban area it serves

Smog in Beijing

with one comment

Guardian video

A very short video, which should be pause for thought. The clip concentrates on the smog – and we already know that drifts across the pacific and gets to us – but my concern is the ghg.

But it also is a very well made point that even if they are small cars, the traffic problem, is horrendous and will only get worse. And the authorities in Beijing have conceded that they cannot build enough roads to ever keep up with demand.

(I would have like to embed it but Vodpod only gets the ad!)
