    Thank you bekyboo. I note that there is the 'Clear the Air' organisation in Hong Kong already ( who were mentioned in today's SCMP (Wed 10 Oct). A quick perusal of their website shows they have the daily reading and hold monthly meetings - I didn't see anything about any petitions.
    I also note that the HK govt 'limits' are self imposed and that they are double those by which other country's measure their pollution and the WHO guidelines.
    There is a rumour that the Chinese govt have moved a lot of factories to south China, away from Beijing, to keep the air clear there for the Olympics, hence the air this season has been worse than ever.
    Let's keep the threads going to gather awareness and support - every mother I know is concerned.

    online questionnaire

    I just wanted to let you all know that there is also currently a campaign to get public feedback on pollution issues in Hong Kong, organised by The Council for Sustainable Development. Its not the best questionnaire and certainly doesn't address all our concerns but it is a start so I would urge you all to send in a response

    I wanted to know what people thought about sending the letter to the SCMP....would it be best to send it now, complete with the petition website in an attempt to get more people to sign the petition.

    Or would it be better to wait until there are x number of signatures on the peition and then send it to the papers?!

    Anyone have any thoughts?
