I am happy to report that Alice is alive and well and living in the wonderland of China! According to reports at Zero Hedge, the China Meteorological Administration has ordered its various local bureaus not to issue smog warnings without permission from central government. Apparently, the people (dread words!) are revolting! For some reason the ingrates forget all the benefits bestowed on them by a generous government and instead, as they blindly flounder, coughing and choking through smog-filled streets, they start complaining.
So, henceforth there will be no smog in China except when the boss of the China Meteorological Administration can't find his way to the office, er, because of the smog!
