The haze you see in the picture are not clouds…
I’m certain this is somewhere in China, perhaps in the North East, but I CANNOT FIND IT! ARGHH!
The city of Linfen, world’s most polluted city (according to TIME). 36°05’03″N 111°30’59″E
Didn’t really need the hint, just had a lack of time before the hint.
OK OK OK!
At approx 36.083,111.516, this is the city of Linfen in eastern China, the 2nd largest city in Shanxi Province and a regional center of coal mining. Named by Time Magazine (?) as one of the world’s most polluted places. Apparently even the China Daily admits it. 😛
So much for searching “China smoggiest city”, “China coal pollution”, etc etc. I should have headed straight to “China most polluted city”!
I will never get back those 6 hours of my life…
