    FT you said: "worst air pollution in Europe by some measures"

    Not what seems to be the case in the link you sent. That is all I am saying. As I said, I do not know (and could not care less)

    Actually, I read a couple of other articles where the EU noted that Munich had had some of the worst pollution - however - if we want to accept that I just made it up, then I think we can revert to my larger point. No need to argue.

    If you'd actually READ the thread on Park Island or indeed the rest of this one on Pollution you would know what the previous post meant and know the answer to your question. However, since you are a clearly just spamming this forum with slightly longer posts than the other spammers, with no understanding of English irony, you are clearly a local and not an expat, you don't.

    Definitely English irony - a lot of Americans and other expats with English as a 2nd language don't get it, either!

    On the langages front - even if we all had the same language we still could not understand each other because of various accents, just take a trip around the UK for proof of that. Anyway Paenma you are at least bilingual aren't you? My kids all speak three languages fluently and the eldest a bit of Mandarin and I am glad of that. The more languages a person speaks the better if you ask me. I have not noticed anyone who is multilingual suffering from a lack of mental capacity! Now me, one language and definitely a lack of capacity.

    is air quality better at higher floors? Floors 30-50

    just wondering if anyone knows if air quality is better higher up compared to ground floor? This perhaps could help a bit with dealing with HK pollution

    thanks

    I am only here for a bit over a month and I found the pollution to be no problem either for me nor for my family so far.

    The only time it bothers me is on a busy street with the buses blowing the exhaust in your face.

    If i stayed in Bejing I would feel it in a day or two. In Shanghai after a week. So far Hongkong is fine.

    My personal opinion with no study to back it up is, that if you live on a higher floor it should be better than on the ground floor on a busy street.
