Description:

NASA satellite image of eastern Asia shows a dense blanket of polluted air over central eastern China -- dense enough that the coastline around Shanghai virtually disappears. The Asian Brown Cloud is a toxic mix of ash, acids and airborne particles from car and factory emissions, as well as from low-tech polluters like wood-burning stoves.
