Is smog becoming a major problem in your city?

Most of Hong Kong's smog is blown across the border from factories in southern China. Critics have also argued that local power stations should switch to cleaner alternative fuels besides coal.



On many days, visibility is significantly reduced due to the smog.

With 6.7 Million automobiles, The San Francisco Bay Area should be very smoggy, but the strong pacific ocean currents push our smog to The Central Valley and so while The Bay Area often has pristine air quality, Sacramento, Stockton and Modesto are just under a thick brown soup of smog. Sorry Sactown :runaway:

But we do get smog sometimes.

in my small town where I live now it is not a big problem but last summer there were warnings about pollution levels and advised people to avoid walking. shame because I love walking :(
it is not suprising though because it is very car orientated here
