“I HAVEN’T seen the smog stay so long like this for years,” a 40-year-old woman who only gave her last name, Zhou, said after buying two air purifiers for more than US$2,000 each in downtown Beijing.

Financial Times said yesterday that this was a “silver lining” for some in the environmental crisis – which I suppose would be true for us too, were we located in Beijing – though, we’re not sure if it’s such a good idea to be there right now…
