It's no secret that China has a big pollution problem. However, far from getting better, all signs point to the fact that China's pollution problem is actually getting worse. And it's not just major cities like Shanghai and Beijing that are bearing the brunt of this pollution crisis.
Every major city in China is having air-quality problems. One of the worst is Nanjing. The other day, residents there suddenly found that the air around them had turned pink. Needless to say, they weren't too thrilled about it.
But not all researchers are convinced by that explanation. Some believe that the pink color may have been caused by a new type of smog particle. Obviously, more testing will be required to confirm that hypothesis.
That is a combination of something horrifying and something strangely beautiful. Still, I wouldn't want to spend any sizable amount of time in China anytime soon...at least not until they get this pollution situation under control.
