HONG KONG-THEME-POLLUTION

A tourist looks on as a thin haze of pollution sits over the city's skyline on a clear day in Hong Kong on February 1, 2013. Emissions from factories in southern China, which seep over Hong Kong's border, combined with local emissions from power plants and transport, generate an almost daily thick blanket of haze over the teeming metropolis.
