Finally! I just discovered a great site by a family doctor in Beijing (close enough!) with all the info you need — like what to do — about the
appalling infuriating horrifying confounding oppressive chewable inexcusable damnable lethal ghastly hideous depressing atrocious illiberal obscene foul nose-burning abominable face-coating heinous lì hai monstrous odious execrable unholy [they-don’t-make-strong-enough-negative-descriptors] air pollution. For example:
- How Bad Is It, Really?
- Why you should Close Your Windows at Night
- About air purifiers
- Pollution slideshow
- Using the Beijing Air Quality Index (AQI) (why “200” is 4x worse than “100”)
Call me a pampered whiny rich foreigner if you want, I don’t care; I want to liiiiiive!
And please, by all means, you’re welcome to add adjectives to my list (but keep it PG!). Sometimes it just feels good to vent to get it off your chest, especially since you can’t vent to get it out of your chest.
I’ll add a photo later if I can bring myself to take one (through tears, no doubt).
