PAH! Not as bad as the thick...and I mean 'I can't see my hand at arms length' thick, that we used to get in London when I was a kid back in the late 50's. We cleaned it up by getting rid of most of the dirty coal burning power stations...that China are building at a rapid rate...even now. Its going to take them years to clean this up.

#2, oh they do, but there's little Beijing city can do about pollution coming from neighbouring cities. It was a bad idea to relocate all factories out of the city in 2008, as they lost control over them.

#3 Northern China is actually mostly building nuclear and wind power

In 2012 I experienced similar scenes in Beijing and since then I so understand why Chinese so often spit onto the street. Every breath you take gives you the impression that there is some kind of a lump of undefined something hanging in the back of your throat. You are just trying to get rid of it.
