Pretty Beijing, Ugly Beijing- Air Pollution in China

Posted by w_thames_the_d on April 25, 2012

These two photos were taken a few days apart. They show how horrible the smog can be in Beijing. In the photo where you can actually see the sky, the smog level was almost 50, or what most countries would be consider to be bad. In China, however, it is a great day.
In the other pic, the pollution was like 370 or something and the air felt like an acid wash. Those days you can feel your lungs suffering from the pollutants.
