China Again Drowned In The Smog

In the Northern part of China there is a city called Harbin. The last few days, local residents feel unpleasant odors, not to mention the poor visibility on the roads. The fact that the city was covered in a strong smog, which significantly reduced the visibility to ten meters. Because of this situation, local authorities had to close all the schools and even to the motorway, and also to cancel a large number of flights.
In the area of air pollution have already risen several times according to the world health organization. If we turn to the regulations, we can see that the indicator should not go abroad in 25 micrograms per cubic metre of air. In the morning in Harbin, this figure has already crossed the line 500 micrograms per cubic meter.
The reason for this pollution are not natural disasters, and so-called human factor. It turns out there just massively turned on communal boiler houses in anticipation of the winter season. Something like that happened in Beijing, at the beginning of this year. Local residents had to live in such a difficult environmental situation few weeks. In the provinces of Jilin, haluzan and Liaoning currently entered red alert.
