Beijing Airpocalypse: Video of Beijing Smog and after the winds blow it away



This is how Beijing looked like during the worst smog of 2016. Video taken yeasterday at 3pm on 21 December 2016 when the AQI hit 440 and the PM2.5 was at 410. The few days of hazardous toxic air has put China on red alert. Red alerts are issued when an air quality index (AQI) is forecast to exceed 200 for more than four days in succession, 300 for more than two days or 500 for at least 24 hours.


Today strong winds started to blow in Beijing and like magic, the smog has disappeared. I can breathe again!

Walk with me as I climb up Baiwang Mountain



Baiwang Mountain is a lush, heavily forested park in Beijing. It covers an area of roughly 133 hectares and its peak is 210 meters above the sea level. Baiwang Mountain is often regarded as the oxygen source of Beijing because of its 95% lush vegetation coverage. There is plenty of historical culture in Baiwang Mountain such as its collection of steles with themes of protecting nature and promoting a green environment. The steles include inscriptions, poems, verses, paintings and calligraphy by country leaders, celebrities, painters and calligraphers.
