The World’s Highest Eco Station


Where’s the best place to measure all the pollution blowing in from smog-producing factories in China and India? How about Mount Everest, the world’s highest mountain. This month, Italy opened an eco station on Everest’s 16,600-foot level, as reported by the ANSA news agency. The Italians carted 18 tons of equipment up the mountain by hand—a feat necessary due to the sensitivity of the measuring devices.

Italians? really??
