3 Days After Airpocalypse Eases, Smog Returns To Beijing, Hebei - PM 2.5 Up To 241

Pollution returned to haunt Chinese capital Beijing and surrounding provinces on Christmas Day today, three days after a nearly week-long red alert for the worst smog of the year was lifted.

Heavy smog continued to shroud some parts of Beijing and neighbouring Hebei province, meteorological authorities said, forecasting the pollution to be dispersed tomorrow with the arrival of cold front.

The density of PM 2.5, particulate matter measuring less than 2.5 microns in diameter, ranged between 130 to 241 micrograms per cubic meter today morning in Beijing, the National Meteorological Centre said. Some parts in Hebei and Shanxi provinces also saw medium smog.

Despite government efforts to fight pollution, frequent outbreaks of smog have become increasingly common in winter in northern China where cold weather conditions and the burning of coal for heating combine to exacerbate the situation, state -run Xinhua news agency reported.

1. You can't send smog to a re-education camp.
