It sounds like an interesting idea, of course, if it's true. They say this tower can produce more than 353 million cubic feet of clean air a day since its launch.

But at the same time Greenpeace report says that China is winning battle against pollution in big cities while this country saw only a small improvement in air quality in the last year.

Seems like the idea right now is to move pollution out of city centers and to decrease pollution sources inside.

I don't believe in this until I see an independent study. I'm not a believer in state-published air quality numbers.

When I see news like this one I feel confident. As long as it becomes a contest between superpowers, we can expect a solution for global warming.

Does this air purifier run off of fossil fuel energy? I couldn't find anything about it. If it does, than it denies itself.

well, yes, but I'm guessing that any renewables manufactured by fossil fuels is still a plus for the climate.
