China bans foreign embassies from publishing air pollution levels
Posted 05 June 2012 - 04:41 AM
That's pretty bold of the Chinese government.
I loved this bit (paraphrase, but surprisingly not by much) "we're a developing country so we're allowed to have extremely unhealthy air pollution levels".

Eh. Last i checked, embassies are considered part of the country it holds and follows their laws. therefore, the US Embassy can completely ignore China's moroncy and continue on. Just like embassies hosted in the US can yak all they want too.
I thought so too, but I imagine there is a bit more to it than that. The other thing is, what the US can do, and what it should do are not the same thing. China will likely penalise the US in some way if they continue publishing pollution levels. The US may decide that it is worth it. Who knows.
