@jameswdelano for @icp | Thick banks of smog infiltrate the mountain range that hems in Beijing to the west. In 2013, industrial China’s coastal strip experienced record-high levels of air pollution, including in Beijing, Shanghai and Harbin. In the past 3 decades deaths from lung cancer in China have risen 465% while the smoking rate (traditionally the leading cause of lung cancer) has decreased from 63% of adults smoking to 50%, leading doctors to conclude that the increase of the fine particulate air pollutant PM 2.5 is the culprit. #globalwarning #climatechange #china #smog #coal View Larger
