Beijing Was Recently Put on "Orange Alert"

Beijing, a very largely populated city, contains many factories that put off harmful pollutants into the environment. Although these factories create many jobs and a large amount of goods worldwide are made there, they are very harmful to the air in China. These pollutants have put Beijing into a recently filed "Orange Alert." This is the second highest alert level and puts bans on things like barbecues, fireworks, and demolition work.

The current PM particle amount per cubic meter is about 20 times as much as the limit that is considered safe by the World Health Organization.
