Hangzhou's air quality ranked fourteenth among China's 31 provincial capitals and municipalities, Beijing News reported.
  
The 2012 China Environment Green Paper was composed and published on April 19 by Friends of Nature, an environmental protection NGO.

The green paper analyzes China's serious polluting accidents of the last year, and concludes that usually after such accidents, no preventative actions were taken.

It was a delightful beginning that citizens in Beijing launched an action to monitor PM 2.5, leading to a non-government environmental protection campaign.

The president of Friends of Nature said it was absolutely necessary to change the temporary remedy situation and come up with a prevention-first administration mode. Public participation was likely to become the major power in improving the environment.
