Contest #276 answer: Linfen, Shanxi, China

If there was a contest about the most polluted city in the world, Linfen would probably win it hands down.

Over 3 million people living in the cite are affected by the pollution, causing chronic illness and premature deaths.

Once renowned for its rich agriculture and called “The Modern Fruit and Flower Town”, nowadays coal burning power plants have covered the city under a smoke and dust blanket.
