Beijing Smog -- Pretty Unbelievable

Northeast China is one of the most polluted places in the world.  Beijing made news last year when its pollution got so bad that the air quality readings literally went off the chart, into an unknown territory called "Crazy Bad."  Air quality in the last few weeks has also been unbelievably bad; makes me glad I don't live in Beijing.

Check out this link for some more pictures of this particularly smogtastic season in Beijing.


  1. You know how you can tell? Smog is a brown haze; fog is white. The top photo looks pretty bad, but the second one looks like it's just fog...

  2. Probably true, but still a cool picture. You should click over to the site and look at the other pictures too.
