相关英语报道及观点:

The debate on whether fireworks should be banned has been raging in China for decades. With Chinese New Year right around the corner, the discussions are heating up again amid concerns over increasingly severe pollution in some of the major cities. Should China impose the ban on fireworks during the Spring Festival? You're welcome to leave your comments.

1. CMC (expat in China)

I agree with banning fireworks but they are a traditional Chinese form of celebration, so it's difficult to comment on it. Why not limit fireworks to one day? Listening to fireworks banging at 5-6 am throughout the holidays is deafening. Last year one of my neighbors was shooting fireworks from his apartment window with sparks bouncing off the adjacent buildings. Ridiculously stupid and dangerous.


 

2. Tracy (China)

As a tradition they absolutely add to the festival's happiness. They shouldn't be banned totally. But the time should be reduced. For example, allowed just during New Year's Eve, the first day of the Lunar New Year and the Lantern Festival.

3. Sam (Malaysia)

Banning firecrackers and fireworks alone may not solve air pollution and other issues. Moreover, it will take away the pleasure and expectations that the Chinese people have with firecrackers and fireworks during festivals. What is important is the firing of firecrackers and fireworks should be managed to ensure minimizing probable air pollution, disturbances and other issues that they may cause.

4. Samuel (UK)

I think since they've already set up all the fireworks stands, they probably won't ban them this year, but I would support a shorter time period for allowing them, like only for a few days. The amount of mess they create is just so wasteful, and I for one am tired of having to flee the country to get away from the constant booming of the fireworks.

5. Andrew (Australia)

I live in Australia and we aren't allowed any sort of fireworks. It's not fun any more because everything considered "not safe" is banned. There are billions of things that are not safe. So why spoil the fun? Let fireworks be legal. It's fun and as I said before, there are HEAPS of things that aren't safe like knives, cars, matches and skateboards.


 

6. Thomas (UK)

I love fireworks but keep them in organized displays. I now believe selling fireworks directly to the public should be banned. I don't have a problem with displays for all kinds of celebrations, several times a year, but the firing of fireworks for weeks on end, in the street and into the early hours MUST stop. It is upsetting to most animals and small children, endangering lives and must cost a fortune. Please, enough is enough. Ban the sale of fireworks unless a license is obtained by the organizer.

7. msrong (US)

A total ban on fireworks should be implemented. The sulphur emitted into the air makes pollution deadly, as it already is.
 


 

8. GhostBuster (UK)

Most cities in China have buildings too close for comfort. In some places, firecrackers were a major cause of fires, resulting in fatalities. If China's government really cares, then it should allow setting off firecrackers in designated areas. Remember, during happy holiday seasons, it should not be turned into a fatal disaster with loss of lives!

9. herbaltea (China)

In Beijing it was a disaster to walk on the street with fireworks blasting literally everywhere.(英文文本 via ChinaDaily)
