This is a huge image- 5 MB. Just click to see it in full res. From NASA.

The image above from the NASA Aqua satellite shows the thick industrial smoke/haze over China on Oct. 7th. These images show better than any written book or public speech the necessity of dealing with how we make and use energy. It’s a problem that affects every living being on the planet and this image illustrates well that it’s reached a crisis level. Despite the slick-looking adverts you see daily on TV from oil companies and coal advocates, there is no such thing as clean coal.
