Thick smog covers North-Eastern China (Satellite pictures)

Some of you might remember the photo-documentary entitled "Pollution in China" which highlighted the consequences of pollution on the health of Chinese citizens (View the photos here). Well guess what, air pollution - just like marine pollution - knows no border.

Below are image satellite pictures taken by NASA over North-Eastern China in October 2011. The thick smog (smoke fog) is the direct consequence of heavy air pollution caused by countless factories, coal power plants and the exponentially increasing number of personal cars.
