January 22nd, 2013

China is respected for being the fastest growing economy in the world – but the cost of such success is huge amounts of waste and pollution present in the cities.
Smog covering the whole city is so thick, that you can see only a few hundreds metres ahead in the direction of city centre, just like there was very thick fog.
Tiny particles in contaminated air may cause lung cancer or heart diseases.
