Efforts to lower China’s air pollution levels have gotten more serious. According to the latest reports, Chinese environmental officials have resorted to shutting down factories to determine if they’re following environmental laws. In a press conference on Monday, China’s Environmental Protection Minister Li Ganjie said that the government is serious about addressing China’s air pollution. Concretely, this means lowering the concentration of particulate matter called PM2.5 hovering over China to 35 micrograms by 2035.
