The Demise of China- Pollution

Posted by w_thames_the_d on September 4, 2010


This is a photo depicting what will be the demise of China. Look at the air, it is filled with a black smoggy haze. This appears to be a storm or nightfall, but is actually a photo of about ten am in Beijing China. The pollution was so bad on this day that it felt as if I were suffocating.
The pollution here is incredible and causes a little less than a million deaths a year.
