China Issues Smog Alert

China has issued a smog “red alert,” shuttering schools, as well as factories and other businesses in dozens of cities.

The affected cities are also limiting the number of cars allowed on streets.

Pollution alerts in China are becoming increasingly common, especially in the northern industrial cities.

The country’s long-standing air pollution is blamed on its reliance on coal and emissions from older cars.
