KPC recently reported on China muscling the World Bank out of reporting on the extremity of the pollution situation there. However, in 13 months the world will descend on China for the 2008 summer Olympics and its hard to imagine the Chinese government being able to keep a lid on each and every reporter (though if anyone can, they can!).
It looks like they have a plan B though: banish a few autos from the streets during the games. Check out the story here: Beijing to ban a million cars in clean air test.
I wonder how long these guys can continue to get away with playing the shell game on us.
