Wow! Man sells fresh air in can…

There
are a lot of wonderful things to do in Beijing but ‘breathing’ is certainly not
one of them. The air pollution in the Chinese city of over 20 million is so
horrendous that the U.S. embassy reports levels are “beyond index.”
However
as smog and pollution hits on the streets of Beijing, one Chinese
entrepreneur is looking to the skies.
Chen Guangbiao, whose wealth is reportedly valued at $740 million, is
selling canned fresh air — and it’s available in different flavors.
You
can buy a can of it for about 80 cents. They come in in sexy flavors such as
“pristine Tibet,” “post-industrial Taiwan” and
“revolutionary Yan’an.” Chen said, “If we don’t start caring for
the environment, then after 20 or 30 years our children and grandchildren might
be wearing gas masks and carry oxygen tanks.” Or they may even be
breathing out of cans. Wait, that’s right now.
Chen hopes to call attention to the ongoing air quality problem in China.
“If we don’t start caring for the environment, then after 20 or 30
years our children and grandchildren might be wearing gas masks and carry
oxygen tanks,” said Chen
Air pollution has long been a problem in Beijing.
