It’s one thing to see this on a TV screen. It’s another to walk around it for yourself. I was in Chongqing in 2003 and the air was just like this. The problem is compounded by the wet, still air. Just walking around was like swimming through an odd industrial algae.

What suffering is bad enough that people will accept this to escape it? Poverty, stupid.
