Really. Send some powerful storms our way, China.

Just remember what ol' Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, and the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake. Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big ol' storm right square in the eye and he says, "Give me your best shot, pal. I can take it."

towatchoverme: One day they'll just decide to get rid of smog, and it will happen, even if they have to throw 14 million people with dustbusters at the problem. And if you don't think that's possible, then baby, you don't know China.

How are the Chinese people not dropping like flies?

They are.

Official numbers are about 600,000 people a year.  And since those are official numbers, you can bet it's a lot worse.

I have pictures i took in my hotel in Nanjing a few years back where the smog was that thick INSIDE THE LOBBY.

When you fly into China, you hit a wall of smog about 200 km offshore that just makes your blood run cold.

Maybe that airplane IS in China somewhere, they just can't see it ...

dready zim: Day_Old_Dutchie: "There have also been suggestions that aerosols over the North Atlantic effect storms over the North Atlantic, and that aerosols in the monsoon region over South Asia can affect circulation around the whole of the world."

from China with love

wow, two different effects both from aerosols? effecting north atlantic storms and affecting circulation around the world?

Powerful stuff.

Did you know that temperature changes can affect water and cause it to become solid or gaseous? Crazy how one variable can have multiple effects, isn't it? It's probably magic.

As it turns out, few things are caused by something that is, you know, not happening.
