Pollution Plagues China's Air

With the Olympics only six months away, air pollution continues to take its toll in China. Coaches and athletes are talking about the dirty air they could experience. Many countries are setting up pre-Olympic camps in countries like Japan and South Korea rather than in China. Beijing is struggling to reduce carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide that covers the city at levels five times higher than the World Health Organization's safety standard. At this point officials aren't saying how they'll solve the problem when the games open on August 8. It is expected that China will pull its vast resources to control the pollution or risk a public relations nightmare.
