I don't see the point.

- First of all, foreign embassies are just foreign soil. Within that boundary, Chinese government has no say.

- Pollution is a known issue in Beijing (and many, many other cities in China), no need to hide.

I cant believe you idiots are using the "agriculture burn" excuse. I lived in LA in the late 70s and 80s. Ive also lived in Beijing in the 00s. The pollution in BJ is on a whole different scale. Like comparing an earthquake of 5 to a 10.

Keep clear of haze?

Try putting on a full military grade gas mask and radio-active protection suit!

Look, when the pretty fluffy clouds start turning puke green and yellow, it's time to get out of Dodge!
