China Is Telling People To Use Their Umbrellas As A Shield Cause The Falling Snow Is So Toxic

(NEWSER) – “The snow is very dirty! The snow is very dirty! The snow is very dirty!” This thrice-emphasized warning from Beijing’s Meteorological Bureau appeared on Chinese social media site Weibo on Thursday after the country’s Ministry of Environmental Protection announced the city’s average air-quality index for the past month came in at 195, with a high of 470, Time reports. To put that in context, the WHO notes that 25 is a generally safe level. And, apparently, the particles present in the air have settled into the precipitation, turning the city’s first snowfall of the year on Thursday into what the magazine refers to as “toxic snow.” Residents venturing out in the capital have been informed that no one will think the worse of them if they use protection. “It is not pretentious to use an umbrella on a snowing smoggy day,” the bureau notes, though it advises just staying indoors altogether.

 

If I’ve said it once I’ve said it a billion times but stuff like this is exactly why China will never be a real super power. They can’t be. They’re posers of the highest degree. They have too many underlying problems that they kinda ignore but will eventually kill like 80% of their population. We always hear the word “smog” when talking about China but they never do anything about it. They’re just like, “Yeah yeah yeah. We’ll get to that later.” Well this is what happens when you put something like that off forever. You get acid snow and have to tell the people of your country to use their umbrellas like shields. That’s pretty wild but also an awesome reason to never leave the house if we’re being honest. Netflix streams (or whatever communist form of Netflix they have over there) is gonna be through the roof. So yeah. Does the United States owe China a bunch of money? That’s what I’m told. Do they have a lot more people than us and could theoretically form a larger army? Sure. But they’re gonna be undone by their own ignorance in the form of acid snow killing their civilians and I love it.
