I was at the Xian, China last week and can assured you that nobody can escape from the Air pollution.
Do watch the video below which was a self-financed documentary called Under the Dome, by Chai Jing, an ex radio host and news presenter, from China Central Television (CCTV).
The air pollution in China was so Bad until she claimed her baby girl was diagnosed with a tumour before birth!
One of the biggest culprit of air pollution was because China is the world’s largest consumer of coal, which accounts for 70% of the country’s total energy consumption.
Do gave a serious thought before your trip to China!
Under the Dome (English subtitle,Complete) by Chai Jing: Air pollution in China
Chai Jing’s investigation report on air pollution in China.
Under the Dome (film)
Under the Dome (Chinese: 穹顶之下; pinyin: qióngdǐng zhī xià) is a 2015 self-financed, Chinese documentary film by Chai Jing, a former China Central Television journalist, concerning air pollution in China. It was viewed over 150 million times on Tencent within three days of its release.
Chai Jing started making the documentary when her as yet unborn daughter developed a tumour in the womb, which had to be removed very soon after her birth. Chai blames air pollution for the tumour.
The film, which combines footage of a lecture with interviews and factory visits, has been compared with Al Gore’s An Inconvenient Truth in both its style and likely impact.
The film openly criticises state owned energy companies, steel producers and coal factories, as well as showing the inability of the Ministry of Environmental Protection to act against the big polluters.
Despite demonstrating the failure of China’s regulations on pollution, the Chinese government at first did not censor the film.
Instead, the People’s Daily reposted the film alongside an interview with Chai, while Chen Jining, the recently-appointed minister for environmental protection, praised the film, comparing its significance with Silent Spring, the 1962 book by US environmentalist Rachel Carson.
However, within a week, the Communist Party’s publicity department confidentially ordered the film to be removed. An employee of China Business News was suspended for leaking the order.
