Oil - Crisis, what Crisis?
This evening I was returning to my hotel towards sunset. Peak hour. Traffic seems to have doubled in just a few months. A ten minute drive will take twenty. I stared at the sun sinking towards the horizon, dim and red due to the thick atmosphere. I heard that there are 2000 new cars added to Beijing streets each day. The motorcycle with a whole family on board is being replaced by the car with one driver commuters. Pollution seems to have double in just a few months. Twenty years of damage will probably now only take ten.
