Just ignore those guys. Some people just see what they want to see.

fog in China = definetely smog
fog somewhere else = fog

I agree with lianli on this one. Those who disregard smog in China as fog are daydreamers… It’s a huge environmental problems, and you can clearly see where in China sanitation efforts are being made – just go out and take a look upwards. In Shanghai for example I see more and more blue skies each year that passes by, and that’s because effort is being made there in particular. So what about Dalian? Not quite the same efforts are being made there…

I don't know how the progress for the main tower is going. I'll try and get a picture of it before I leave.

I think that's for the main tower, the 85-story one.
