Q: Do Springtime sand/dust storms still happen in Beijing?

I'd always heard about the dust storms that cover Beijing in the springtime, but last spring there didn't seem to be a whole lot of sand/dust -- just the same ol' air pollution awesomeness. Does Beijing still get these springtime storms or is that a thing of the past? I heard something last year about the gov't planting hundreds of acres of trees outside the city to stop the storms. is that true?

Yes, it is true! You are gonna have to excuse the above he can't read well. I got a mask to protect myself against the sand/dust storms that come out during spring time. The pollution is bad enough but then you add that sandstorm and it's like hell. Kind of reminds me of Dubai a bit. They have been planting trees and although I was unaware they were doing it for the storms I knew they planted trees to cut down on the pollution...lol!

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
