Andrew Edgecliffe-Johnson of the Financial Times quotes JUCCCE Chairperson Peggy Liu in his article on air pollution in Wuhan.
I was prepared for smog when I landed in Wuhan, the industrial heartland city dubbed the Detroit of China, but I hadn’t expected it inside the airport terminal.

But it’s also a reasoned, slickly argued narrative I heard from Peggy Liu, a Silicon Valley veteran turned social entrepreneur, in her apartment/office in Shanghai
Smartplanet’s Gabrielle Jaffe consults Peggy Liu on the prospects of ecotourism in China. Try to picture an eco-paradise. As the world's biggest polluter, China probably isn't the first destination that springs to mind. And yet in recent years this famously gray, smog-cloaked country has become a laboratory for green travel.
