Visualizing China’s Pollution

September 21, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

In China, air pollution remains a major—and literally visible—problem that shows no signs of going away, except when Beijing shuts down industry for events such as the military parade, and the Olympic Games. Launched in 2012, the website China Air Daily publishes near real time snapshots of the sky in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and, for comparison, New York City and Phoenix. The project—produced with Asia Society’s Center on U.S.-China Relations—provides a visual record of air quality and pollution in China’s main cities.

Michael Zhao, creator of China Air Daily, will join Queens Library to discuss his work as a multimedia journalists focused on environmental issues in China.
