Beijing, Happy Smoggy New Year of the Horse!

Welcome to the New Year with a Fit of Coughing!

Fireworks can add to the smog levels to a city that already have a smog problem.

Just look at that jump in the smog levels between Midnight and One O’clock in the morning.

Get a Look At These Beijing Fireworks!

Chinese take their fireworks serious when it comes to celebrating the Lunar New Year.

The following video shows fireworks being set off in Beijing for the 2013 to 2014 New Years Day.  It gives you a flavor of what fun they had making all that smoke.  It starts slow, but hang in there to get some up close action at around the 5 minutes mark.  Like a mix between the Star Wars Ion Cannon and the War of the Worlds.
