Shanghai ranks low, Beijing unsuitable for living: global environmental report

Shanghai is among three Chinese cities at the bottom of a global environment ranking as China suffered its worst air pollution in 52 years in 2013, according to an annual report on world cities released today.

Of the 40 cities covered in the ranking, Shanghai is placed 36th, after Hong Kong (34th) but before Beijing (40th), according to the 2014 Blue Book on World Cities compiled by the Shanghai Academy of Social Sciences.

The report said severe air pollution has made Beijing unsuitable for living. Deteriorating environment, poor medical service and a rising crime rate combine to lower the quality of living in the capital city, it added.
