Thick smog in Harbin urban areas has caused the closing of primary and secondary schools and expressways. The PM2.5 index has exceeded the maximum range of the metre.

After the serious smog on October 20, and the early morning on October 21, air pollution was even worse. The visibility in urban areas was less than 50 metres. Some major expressways in Heilongjiang Province have been closed.

Liaoning Province issued a red warning signal for thick smog, closed expressways and had many flight delays at Shenyang Airport.

In Shenyang, thick smog began to intensify in the early morning of October 21 and had not lifted at noon. Visibility was poor outdoor.

Liaoning Provincial Observatory said that it had issued ten warnings on the smog over the past two days and that it expected the smog would not lift until tomorrow morning.

Thick smog has reigned in Jilin Province since the evening of October 20 and deteriorated instead of lifting. At 2:45 am, October 21, Changchun Observatory issued a red smog warning signal, the top warning signal. All traffic, including expressway, train and airways in the province, have been affected.

The smog was so thick in Changchun at 6:00 am October 21 that one almost could not see his fingers when he stretched his hand before himself. All the vehicles had to switch on their flashing lights and drive slowly. Due to the pungent smell of the smog, most of the citizens and the traffic police outdoors had to wear masks.

On 7:00 am, October 21, Jilin Provincial Observatory issued an orange smog warning signal.

Quite a few expressways were closed and there were 14 road accidents from the evening of October 20 to the morning the next day.

Chan Kai Yee's new book: SPACE ERA STRATEGY: The Way China Beats The US An eye-opening book that tells the truth how the US is losing to China. The US is losing as it adopts the outdated strategy of Air-Sea Battle while China adopts the space era strategy to pursue integrated space and air capabilities: It is losing due to its diplomacy that has given rise to Russian-Chinese alliance. US outdated strategy has enabled China to catch up and surpass the US in key weapons: Hypersonic weapons (HGV) that Pentagon regards as the weapon that will dominate the world in the future. Aerospaceplane in China’s development of space-air bomber that can engage enemy anywhere in the world within an hour and destroy an entire aircraft carrier battle group within minutes. Anti-satellite (ASAT) weapons, anti-ASAT weapons, stealth aircrafts, drones, AEW&C, etc. The book gives detailed descriptions of China’s weapon development based on information mainly from Chinese sources that the author monitors closely. U.S. Must Not Be Beaten by China! China is not a democracy. Its political system cannot prevent the emergence of a despotic leader or stop such a leader when he begins to bring disasters to people. A few decades ago, Mao Zedong, the worst tyrant in world history did emerge and bring disasters to Chinese people. He wanted to fight a nuclear war to replace capitalism with communism but could not bring nuclear holocaust to world people as China was too weak and poor at that time. If a despot like Mao Zedong emerges when China has surpassed the US in military strength, world people will suffer the misery experienced by Chinese people in Mao era. China surpassing the US in GDP is not something to worry about as China has the heavy burden to satisfy its huge population, but China surpassing the US in military strength will be world people’s greatest concern if China remains an autocracy. US people are of much better quality than Chinese people. What they lack is a wise leader to adopt the correct strategy and diplomacy and the creative ways to use its resources in developing its military capabilities. I hope that with the emergence of a great leader, the US can put an end to its decline and remain number one in the world.
