China deploys drones for 'war on pollution'
— By Tyler Falk on March 5, 2014, 3:36 PM PST
Being asthmatic myself, by looking at the editorial picture I start, ostensibly, to pant for air! How can they live under those conditions?
The best solution? Switch off the lights and let us go home, or, get oxygen masks for everybody.
And those chemicals... what effect will they have on people's health?
I don't like it.
Aside from one paragraph, the author missed the story here...
"That's right, more chemicals that will eventually find their way back to the ground and into the waterways that China is reportedly trying to clean up. Cleaning up one problem, creating another."
Am I the only one that wonders what "chemicals" the Chinese seem to think will solve their air pollution problem.
Better to leave the subject untouched, rather than to tease us with one paragraph and not do an author's duty of drilling down to reveal all the facts.
I think Tyler was too giddy, reblogging snother drone story to notice, and forgot his responsibility under the SmartPlanet meta tag of "SmartPlanet - destination for savvy advice,
thought-provoking analysis and expert discussion on the intersection of
technology, business and life." to actually do any background research and explain anything to us.

The solution in China, is to stop fundamentally reduce the volume of crap being ejected into the environment.
See London, California, New York etc decades ago for some guidance how to do it.
