I think 99.999% of the people are going to think it's bad.

I would agree with 99.999% of people.

In the north(e.g. Beijing), it's disturbingly terrible; in the south(e.g. Guangzhou, Shenzhen), it's still bad but less aggressive.

It is very, very bad. I think they should just move the capital.

But probably not worse that in Indian cities.

Not sure what is there to think about... It's bad, it's unhealthy, and it's not going away anytime soon unless there is a fundamental structural shift in China's economy, and drastic increase in energy efficiency and productivity.

Frankly, I dont know how the Chinese leaders can solve this problem aside from a massive change in their growth strategy.

It is bad and worse during the winter months when they use/burn coal for heating.

The air pollution is a side effect of China's rapid growth; the energy required to keep the factories running, and also the waste from the production itself. It'd take a huge infrastructure change to reign in... an infrastructure change that's not going to happen, to be frank.

Do you really think it serious affect health?

Japan, Singapore and HK rank very high in life expectancies.
Their medical standard are world-class.
