Forbidden City

The Forbidden City takes on a new connotation as pollution adds to its forbidden-ness…but pollution is not limited to Beijing. Pollution knows no boundaries. It is spreading throughout the world…across oceans…even down into the pristine air of Antarctica. Once upon a time Beijing was known as a city of open skies. Today the air is thick and grey from coal, its most abundant energy source.
