That shiat is causing acid rain here in Tokyo today. Yesterday I was out for a 15 minute walk and ended up coughing my lungs out and turning back after only a couple minutes outside.

fark you and your pollution, China. Get your shiat together already. WTF is the matter with you?

Forget the smog.  Once China invades Taiwan and the surrounding islands, smog will be the least of worries.

I'm noticing the Chinese people don't give a good goddamn if the government's trying to censor the smog complaints. Their life expectancy with the smog's going to be short enough anyway, so it's not like they have very much to lose.

I guess we really don't have to worry about the global domination of the Dragon if their entire population suffers from lung cancer and emphysema.

Particularly their man babbys....sad to see toddlers hooked up to equipment like that.

I am unsure of what you are trying to say. banning groups and companies from saying false or misleading things or they will lose funding is not the same thing as jailing people for mentioning smog.

Did he successfully sue the government, or just file a lawsuit that will probably get him killed.

Guess we know which side Oobama is on.  Funny, I don't remember Bush employing CONVICTED terrorists.

Wonder what the Chinese big shots do about breathing or do they all live upwind.

Photo caption in TFA: "China's National Meteorological Centre issued a 'yellow' smog alert for much of the country's north."

Since the pollutant level is more than 10x the EPA safe limit, I'm going to assume that yellow refers to the air color rather than the severity of the problem.

The long-term health effects of this whole thing are going to be extreme. It makes our obesity epidemic seem much more tame by comparison, but we're both farked in a few decades.

I saw that on world news last night.  Some guy on a train had to travel like 300 miles just to sort of see the sun.  Most of the landscape look like Silent Hill.

Wow you are of questionable intelligence.   The person was a health care navigator.  Basically a person with training on the crappy ACH website.  The government hired thousands of them temporarily.  Most are most likely not even employed any more. I'm sure there was not a rigorous background check on hiring bodies.  But you go right ahead and get your panties in a bunch.

147 industrial companies in the capital failed to pay bribes and had cut or suspended production as of Tuesday

I just don't understand why anyone in China would think taking on their government is a good idea.

I take it as a measure of just how bad things are there. GIS 'Chinese smog from space'.

I guess we're going to find out if pollution really is bad for your health

Maybe some bearded man told them they were the lucky number.

But the free market doesn't need government regulation and... derpity derpity derpity i'm a tea party retard derpity derpity do.

Just pay for some studies from that Heritage Foundation trash factory. I'm sure they'll find smog is actually good for you.

Remember, boys and girls:  The EPA is a Big Gubmint bureaucracy aimed at keeping Job Creators® from making profits, because socialism.

I think it refers to what color your lungs are going to turn if you breathe that shiat.

Chinese man becomes first person in the country to sue the government over smog, is now enjoying much fresher air in his basement solitary confinement cell  .. and submitard made the rest of the shiat up.

Also Hindustan times commenting on China is like Foxnews commenting on gay marriage and Obamacare. Fair and Balance fer sure!

I enjoyed a beautiful blue sky in Beijing yesterday, so I'm getting a real kick out of some of these replies.
