New Blue Skies Target for Beijing
It is winter in Beijing and the sky is blue blue blue every day and the sun is shining – beautiful!
The government has planned even more blue skies for this year!
245 is the number of days that Beijing has set as its "blue sky" target for 2007.
After surpassing last year's goal of 238 days to achieve a total of 241.
Beijing has already got off to a good start with the first blue sky day of 2007 being registered on Jan 6 and then had 8 blue sky days in a row. Much better than January 2006!
A blue sky day means the air pollution index is below or equal 100 micrograms particulate matter per cubic meter.
