Nope, this is not a still from Blade Runner. It’s smog in Beijing. 

Some of my friends in Beijing have said the air burns their eyes and lungs. Here’s a picture of my colleague with his double-barreled air mask. Intense. Note he’s wearing a trash bag to protect his suit from the dirty air when he goes out.

As we pointed out the other day, Beijing hit an extremely high level on the air-quality chart over the weekend. This is scary stuff, guys.
