Can of fresh air

, January 30, 2013

A woman wearing a mask holds a can of fresh air given away by Chinese multimillionaire Chen Guangbiao as she poses for a photograph for her friend near a busy street on a hazy day in central Beijing, January 30. China's foulest fortnight for air pollution in memory has rekindled a tongue-in-cheek campaign by a Chinese multimillionaire with a streak of showmanship who is raising the alarm by selling canned fresh air. Chen Guangbiao, who made his fortune in the recycling business and is a high-profile philanthropist, on Wednesday handed out soda pop-sized cans of air, purportedly from far-flung and pristine regions of China, from Xinjiang in the far northwest to Taiwan off China's southeast coast.
