Been away from the blog but there are several reports out about both climate change affecting China and pollution problems. And today CNN’s local producer is out with a stunning image via Twitter

That is, behind the CNN producer you should be seeing the scene on the right behind the person on the left but all one sees is smog. Scary stuff. It is when two trends come together, I believe, weather patterns and pollution problems both induced by the same cause – disregard for the environment.
