Environmentally-friendly exhibit in Beijing

NHK reports that the Chinese government has launched a week-long campaign for environmental protection and energy saving. In Beijing today on Sunday, Mayor Wang Qishan opened an exhibit of environmentally-friendly industrial products.

In his opening speech, Mr Wang expressed his determination to turn the Chinese capital into a pollution-free and energy-saving modern city. China has been under international pressure to boost its energy efficiency and preserve the environment as it is the world's second largest emitter of greenhouse gases after the United States.

China has been busy trying to make Beijing a showcase for the Olympics. In reality they are sweeping the dirt under the carpet, because they are merely moving the city's pollution to other areas.
