China's State Environmental Protection Agency says that Linfen has the worst air in the country, which is saying something, considering that the
World Bank has reported that 16 of the 20 most polluted cities in the world are Chinese. One Linfen native summed up the city's plight to a TIME
reporter last year: "This place of ours is no good."
16 of the 20 most polluted cities in the world exist in China, Linfen being the one with the worst air pollution in China.
Amazing and tragic that people live there!
The article goes on to say if you are doing laundry you'd be wise to not hang it out to dry as it would turn black before it got the chance.

2 Major Air Pollutants Increase in China
The pollutants — nitrous dioxide and particulate matter that is between 2.5 and 10 micrometers in diameter, called PM 10 — appeared to have
surged sharply in January, showing levels 47 percent higher than the same month last year, according to the report by The Economic Observer, a
respected Chinese newspaper. The report cited as its source Chen Tian, the head of the Beijing Municipal Environmental Protection Bureau.
A third pollutant, sulfur dioxide, decreased slightly over the same three-month period.
On the bright side.... uhh sulfur dioxide is down... slightly.
Seem likes its a problem compounding and spiraling out of control
