I guess the winds are also very treacherous between those towers. Dangerous flying conditions.

Unfortunately those aren't beautiful clouds, its toxic smog
This will continue a couple years more like this, but China by 2017-18 will really start tackling this problem, eliminate coal and use clean natural gas, take of its polluting cars from the street, build thousands of kms of new Metro all around the country, and clean its pollution from the air. Then everyone will see the true beauty of the modern Chinese cities.

Those are clouds... A small percentage is smoke. China has always been known in history for its fog.

No way that's smog (is there?)

Anyway Yingli Solar advertise at the World Cup.

So someone is thinking along those lines already.

Besides China is (as far as I know) not only the biggest manufacturer of Solar but also of Wind Power.

So it's getting there but not by 2018....

It's not. Smog doesn't look like that.

Very simple. These are clouds. Don't forget, this is Shanghai, these three towers are twice as tall skyscrapers in Europe. distances and heights are differently felt.
