Q: What do you think about the mysterious haze in Wuhan?

http://news.yahoo.com/chinas-wuhan-city-covered-mysterious-haze-145340073.html

 

Is it really just crops being burned outside the city, or is it something else?

Jnusb, at this stage is just assumptions, since there is no real data available.  Now, a haze is normally whitish in color, not dark yellow or light brown as this one was.  So, something else had to give it that color.  Just burning trash or farmers burning fields will not do that. 

Now add some unconfirmed reports of an explosion heard by some prior to the haze.  And add to the cocktail the fact that there are many factories on the outskirts of Wuhan.

What really happened may never be known, I am just glad that at least, no injuries or side effects have been reported.

According to the American Consulate it is from burning crops.  But after living in Wuhan for almost 2 years, I have never seen anything like this.  Thankfully the haze, or whatever it is, is gone.

 

Wuhan is certainly the worst place in China (or anywhere else in the world) I have ever lived.  I can't wait to get my family out of that pit.

I don't know, but I think it worked its way into Hunan province. The last week, the sky has been white. Forget seeing the horizon, or any tall building, for that matter!

I remember before someone was all uptight about people giving their opinions here but since you're asking politely I think the haze is from the crops being burned...and nothing more!

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
