Photo of Air Pollution in China

In order to seem like a normal country, China has air quality standards. The problem is that air here is so bad that the Chinese do not even test for the most harmful air problems ie the smallest harmful particulates. But even with their relaxed definitions of pollution, most cities in China even fail to pass China’s quality standards. This is a photo of typical daytime smog in China. The pollution can be so horrific that it can cut visibility to less than half of one mile. http://www.topchinablog.com(also posted here)
