This is it.. the APOCALYPSE???

The song, "Radioactive" by the Imagine Dragons should totally be the theme song for Shanghai.     There are people walking around the city dressed like this:

Just like the song lyrics, "I'm waking up to ash and dust, I'm breathing in the chemicals, this is it--THE APOCALYPSE".

This was the view on my way to work this morning.

This was the AQI reading during my lunch break.  On other applications and websites, the AQI is approximately 523.

If I don't die from respiratory failure, I think I might die from sadness. How is this possible?? What is wrong with this world? Governments are putting greed for money and power over the health and well being of 23 million people in the metro Shanghai area? I DON'T GET IT!

The solution is more simple than it seems.  The West needs to stop demanding the cheap goods made in China, then the Chinese factories will produce less pollution, then the people will be able to breathe.

Although according to Shanghai Daily, the solution offered by the city weather bureau is to hang on tight until the acid rain comes, and the polluted wind from the north in Beijing blows this week's problem away.   

I am really sad to live here today. 

I hope wherever you are, you can see a bright blue sky and feel the sunshine on your face.
