Who would have thought that ultra-rapid industrialization, building entire empty cities to goalseek a supply-driven GDP number that has no reflection on demand reality, and ramming an entire country's industrial output into overdrive without any concern for the environmental impact would have a disastrous effect on smog levels. Certainly not China. Which is why earlier today people across much of northern China were warned to stay indoors as the entire region was put on health alert to avoid air pollution that, in the Beijing area, was among the worst for a decade and possibly ever, is literally off the charts and has in many areas reduced visibility to under 50 metres.

I was just reading an article about that. Crazy isn't it? I sure am glad I don't live there. Imagine all the health problems those people will develop.

I am not your carpet ride I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind, I am the lightning
I am not your autumn moon, I am the night

sad2.gif Wouldn't want to be anywhere near that shït. So very sad for those in that area, and eventually all that ends up in the food chain.

The pollution is not off the scale. This is as bad as Haarpstatus.com. Their scale goes from 1-10 and they keep having to use grey because they get 11s.

There are many solutions:
1. Renormalize your data.
2. Use a logarithmic scale.
3. Move your graduations closer together.
4. Make the increment between graduations larger.

If a measurement is "off the scale" you are using the wrong measurement equipment or scaling your data improperly.
