China is the undisputed master of half-assing solutions to serious problems on the grandest possible scale. It's this, or it's painting a hill to disguise the vegetation that won't grow there anymore, it's making abrupt hairpin turns in the highway to dodge the house containing the one guy they couldn't manage to evict, it's trying to solve the smog problem by saying 'yeah, these couple factories will be closed today'.

No. Huge bubbles are not the solution to pollution.

Maybe people don't remember this, but there was once a time when some cities in the US had just as bad air quality as Bejing does today. It is entirely the result of the populace letting companies spew crap into the air to keep costs down, and we solved the problem by forcing them to adopt environmentally friendly practices as the cost of doing business. Aside from getting rid of smog, it cuts down on acidic precipitation, improves quality of life and health, and makes people happier.

Here's a slideshow of LA's smog in the late 40's.

Domed cities for the 1% job creators, toxic wastelands for the parasites.

And republicans think getting rid of the EPA and letting companies police themselves will not damage the environment in the US....China is proof that they are idiots.
