The slow-moving disaster: fine particle pollution

For whatever reason, the past week or so has not been that pleasant in New Songdo, here in Incheon.  The reason:  hazardous levels of fine particle pollution, as shown in the accompanying photograph published by The Chosun Ilbo English edition.  It reminds me of Chong-ro in the early 1970s, only perhaps more harmful to people's health.  A picture speaks a thousand words.  This was not only Seoul, but Songdo in recent days.  As the local press are reporting, I believe much of this fine-particle pollution is coming from neighboring China.
