Giant Mushroom Cloud Appears Over Beijing
China Media ^ | 24 June 2012 | China News Center

The China Daily is reporting that a giant mushroom cloud resembling an atomic explosion is being seen all over the capital city of Beijing on Sunday. The video of the cloud has already appeared all over YouTube (see below). There are multiple videos of the haze that have been filmed from skyscrapers and from the ground, some going back as far as June 14th.

The Chinese government, in reacting to the red and green haze, is warning residents that they should stay inside according to the French Press on the scene.

Due to the sheer size of the Chinese population, which stands at more than 1.3 billion people, air pollution is becoming a major problem in the population centers of the country. The government is often accused of downplaying the problem to the media.

Somebody got their hands on a weather machine and they’re not happy with China, lol.

It’s the modern day equivalent of “Surrender Dorothy.”

I saw that pic in an email, with a YouTube link, a week or two ago. It claimed that there was a chemical plant explosion near Beijing, but then it all went down a rathole and disappeared. Nothing on Google, back then, and I’d forgotten about it until now.

You might have something there.

The Chinese government, in reacting to the red and green haze, is warning residents that they should stay inside according to the French Press on the scene.

They wouldn't do that if it were just an odd cloud formation.

Actually, it’s a cumulonimbus cloud, i. e., a thunderstorm

I’ve seen more than a few. This one is, shall we say, rather unique.

Yup. That’s what it looks like to me.

I saw one something like that off in the direction of Detroit just the other day but all the wishing in the world couldn’t make it do more than rain.

Did this happen last week or am I psychic. I could have SWORN I heard Rusty Humphries talking about mushroom cloud over China that the government was denying.
