The one thing my country doesn't have is... (Macau)

The one thing my country doesn't have is ... ... space and clean air. With less than 28 sq km in land area, Macau has over 490,000 residents staying at here at night. Not to mention an additional 20,000 to 50,000 tourists coming over here on any given day. Out of the existing 28 sq km, over half is reclaimed land from the sea. To make things worse, there are 160,000 cars in this over-crowded place. The traffic is slow in the residential areas and most taxis prefer to stay in tourist spots only. The apartment buildings are so close to each other that everybody turns on their air-conditioners. And this had made the pollution problem much worse for everyone. The air is so polluted now that we see clear blue skies less that 100 days per year.

It's incredible that with all the technology in 21st century, we still have to suffer the lack of air.. AIR!! We're starting to look like a bad science fiction movie. Can we move to Mars already?
