Green clouds are never good. They could mean anything from severe thunderstorms/tornado's are imminent, to the potential for a chemical spill or even pollen as was claimed.
The only chemical I can think of that would cause this level of green would be chlorine gas, but if it was chlorine, the photographer would have been dead before he even uploaded the images.
Why is this in the UFO section? There is nothing at all linking this to a possible "alien" origin of the clouds.

Probably some weird natural occurrance. Or some really heavy pollution. I just checked out pics.. It does look kinda badedit on 26-4-2012 by blackmetalmist because: (no reason given)
In Moscow, a green cloud that caused concern. The allegedly threatening phenomenon, but as yesterday proved a cloud of pollen from different species of trees that had begun to bloom suddenly by the rapid rise in temperature, such as the Civil Protection Department said.
The weather service was the natural phenomenon with humor: "Today, the Moscow felt like the heroes of a disaster movie about an alien invasion," said the Authority. The pollen that had been deposited in the Russian capital overnight as a green layer on the cars broke, the web of lively discussions.
Some users have extreme concern that it is in the green cloud, which resulted in some people experience allergic reactions to the eyes, nose and throat, could act to the result of a chemical accident. In the summer of 2010, the smoke from forest fires in the area of the city was shrouded for weeks in dense, acrid smoke.

Birch Trees my Arse - if that was the case, it would happen every year and folks would be used to it.
Steve Gschmeissner, a retired scientific photographer from Bedford who has access to a scanning electron microscope, says: "A single birch catkin can contain five and half million pollen grains. Since a birch tree may carry several thousand catkins, the amount of pollen produced by several thousand trees in whole birch woods boggles the mind."
A false-colour scanning electron micrograph of a pollen grain from a birch tree, which is highly allergic. Birch tree pollen is transported by the wind, and so is light with a smooth, non-sticky surface to aid its dispersal over distances of thousands of kilometres.

Isn't pollen generally white, yellow, or orange? Could be be any color I guess.
