We’re gonna die!

Look what I found:

“Due to the extremely high air pollution levels in Hong Kong it is dangerous to your health to spend time at street level.” Bill Barron, Visiting Scholar, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.

“There is nowhere that is truly safe to live in Hong Kong due to the high levels of air pollution which is causing serious health problems that include respiratory and circulatory illnesses, susceptibility to tumors and a significant increase in premature deaths.” Tony Hedley, Chair Professor Department of Community Medicine, The University of Hong Kong

These are just two of a number of shocking comments from the panel of experts at the recent AsiaXPAT/Civic Exchange Town Hall Meeting on Air Pollution that was attended by over 100 members of the community.
