Dear Sir/ Madam,
It has come to my notice that the poor air quality of Tung Chung has been over-amplified by some Hong Kong mass media in recent years that inevitably has already posed a bad consequence of misleading so many H.K. people to have an impression that Tung Chung is the district with the worst air-quality among all Hong Kong 20 districts.
In fact, this actually is really not the case as I have from time to time watched the Weather Channel of Cable TV and find that the ranking of air-quality of Tung Chung is only somewhere around the middle part of the ranking list in almost the majority of time. Tung Chung’s air-quality is surely better than Mongkok, Causeway, Central, Tsimshatsui, Wanchai, and some other districts in almost most of the time except on some rare occasions in a year but with a very short duration of time.
However, it has come to my notice that I have got or heard so many feedback or expression of views from my friends or the majority of Hong Kong people that Tung Chung is the district in Hong Kong with the worst air-quality among all.
Such twisted view is a very big disappointment for me and many other people residing in Tung Chung because this distorted or misled thinking of so many H.K. people about the over-exaggerated poorness of Tung Chung’s air-quality will be considered a disgrace for Tung Chung people and indirectly has affected the value and the marketing of the properties in Tung Chung.
I hope that your organization can do something to clarify this wrong information about Tung Chung’s air-quality like the publicity of air-quality ranking in more details about all districts in H.K. and also objectively stating the exact ranking of Tung Chung on the air-quality ranking list. I hope that by doing so it will correct or change the already wrongly instilled or misled thinking of quite a large number of H.K. people about Tung Chung’s air-quality.
Anthony, a Tung Chung resident
