20 million surveillance cameras in China rendered almost useless thanks to smog

Vyralize: Looks like China’s smog problem is finally becoming an issue for their government.

China’s worsening smog situation has become so bad that the 20 million surveillance cameras they’ve installed nationwide may have gone to waste. Scientists now say that smog has become so bad that visibility is sometimes reduced to mere meters. Smog has always been a problem for the Chinese government because it has made surveillance more difficult by the day, but they have ignored the situation by classifying the smog as ‘fog’. (Culture)

Why would you want to do that? Almost all of the consoles that are sold in China are knock offs with cheap crappy games.

umm did u read the article? it says:

"The smog has become so bad that infrared cameras which can easily see through regular fog, have become useless on smoggy days because they can’t penetrate through the smokey particles that linger in the air."

Mainland China has 17 nuclear power reactors in operation, 30 under construction, and more about to start construction.

So for the mean time, they'll have to breath through a respirator.

"Hey, instead of making a healthy environment so the smog goes away, lets waste money finding ways to see though it!"

"Great idea Bob! This is the same thinking those Americans have!"

I hadn't known the smog situation was 'that' bad. I can't help but sense an emerging divergence in the future generations.

This don't look good! After all! The environment you live in does have a noted impact.
