China smog: 'Sky dark from air pollution' – BBC News


For the fourth day in a row, large sections of northeast China remain covered by a thick layer of smog considered hazardous to human health. Millions of people have been told to stay indoors, and most factories and schools have been shut. It comes as President Xi Jinping attends the opening of the UN Global Conference on Climate Change in Paris.

  1. ‼️‼️If your doing this for school‼️‼️ 🛑2 main take always-1)people have to avoid going ouster because of how terrible the air has become 2)most people have little faith on any sort improvement because of how much they think the government dose not care. 🛑Summary-The air in China has become so bad people try to avoid the outside as much as possible and the pollution is having a bad impact on the citizens health

  2. So if its that dangerous burning fossil fuels & you lose years off your life why the hell hasnt the govrnment been sued on a mass scale by the UK MINERS ?? Its the same old story the rich get richer & live longer while the poor get poorer & die very early. The government never do anything until the rich have made their billions. Then every new government says lets move on there were mistakes lets learn by them, this senario as gone on for years & years but yet the environment slowly SUFFERS.


  4. One day China will die because of the bad air. When we in the west can get out manufacturing jobs back. That was a joke. The west is too cheap to pay high wages

  5. They poison billion of people with their foods and products…. and now they are slowly dying of air pollution cause by factory that produce those goods. Karma.

  6. im korean, we cant breath anymore.. why they dont plan to solving these issues?? Every winter to spring, the windy changes its direction. so their side countries suffer from chinese air pollution. and Recently chinese goverment and korean goverment situations are not good cause of north korea, so chinese G move their industry factories. why? they suffer to korean about air.

  7. this is what happens when you play the slave role for the western world. You sacrifice your own citizens to keep pace with the world of greed and empire because people in the west pride themselves on what they own and showoff-manship

    You destroy your atmosphere so you can remain relevant in an never ending game of one upmanship

  8. I hope the world be integrated into the United States. The world's single government can effectively control pollution, IS, and nuclear weapons. It can slow down the destruction of the earth. I'm not american. There is no suitable country other than the United States.

  9. I only attach world-first Soyama turbine which makes an internal combustion engine and a factory,the exhaust of the thermal power station absorption offset ,having no bad smell to exhaust oral region .and India and the air pollution of China are settled.

  10. China is experience the same smog problem that California had in 1950' and New York in 1960' and London in 1950'. This is what a country have to go through when it starts to industrialize and every developed country has a history of terrible air pollution. I don't understand why those countries are deriding China's air pollution like its something they've never seen. BTW, if anyone concerns, the air condition has been much better since China started industrial transformation by shutting down heavy industries and try to drive the economic growth with tertiary industry.

  11. Moving factories to east of China is causing a serious health hazard due to smog moving from China to Korea. There are satellite pictures showing this movement. I live in Korea and am raising kids, and as a mother I am just totally, absolutely angry. Every year smog gets worse and this year I have seen clear skies for only few days within these last 3 months. I consider this a chemical terror to the neighboring country. China should take responsibility. They should either move or shut-down the factories.

  12. Don't worry about the pollution China. Just keep on doing want you're doing and pass the U.S.A as the largest economy. By then all of you will be sterile and will start dropping like flies.
    I would work with greedy people that would smoke hard and drink hard. It's comical because before they're retired they get cancer and can't enjoy all that money they made.

  13. China have over 1.3 billion people, they could plant 250 million trees a day. Stop complaining about factories inn China, Chinese people should stop buying China made products and buys imports – this will shutdown these factories for good and immigrate to southern China where their bodies can cope with warmer temperature.
