Beijing has been hit by dense fog recently, sparking heated online discussions about the capital's air quality. "Such foggy weather looks like the end of the world," commented one microblogger. Do you think Beijing's foggy weather is an environmental disaster?

Pro view (5)

Yes. Dense smog can pose serious health threats and even cause death. The government should make eliminating pollution its top priority, rather than ignoring it.

Con view (0)

No. Don't make a fuss over it, as meteorologists say heavy fog usually hits Beijing at this time of year.

    Based on numerous accounts, including far from the sea, I've experienced air pollution in China so thick, could cut it with a knife.
    eg. Chongqing City.

    What happens if I agree with both statements?

    1) Yes, heavy fog and smog is a serious problem and shpuld be addressed accordingly and
    2) Yes, some people make too much fuss about something that is common not only in Beijing but also in neighbouring provinces like Tianjin and Shandong with very foggy skies this time of the year

    In fact, I will intentially avoid any large China city due to the air pollution.

    Couldn't it be more clear? This is a pending disaster.

    No, no one is making a fuss about it. This is the place we are living in. If the population continues like this, it will be too late before you even try to make a fuss.
