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

Posted on 06/24/2012 12:17:13 PM PDT by moonshot925

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

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.

It only looks unique because it is reflecting the light from a sunset behind it. Other than that, it’s a pretty typical “thunderhead” cummulonimbus.

Is it just me or is the world getting stupider about freaking out over just seeing routine stuff that looks in any way slightly odd due to lighting conditions (the airliner “missile launch” contrails off LA, this cumulonimbus anvil, etc)?

I don’t think anyone would waste a perfectly good nuke on Detroit. Looks like a thunderhead to me though, seen them all the time in the thumb.

Nah, I think it’s just that on the internet, there are no editors, so everything is vetted less than a supermarket tabloid.

This sentence speaks. Wonder if the Chinese government did issue a warning to stay inside to residents? If Chinese did, what did they know and when did they know it? Can the French Press be trusted?

The Sun is not just behind it, it's BELOW the cloud because it's pretty much near the horizon at 7 pm at that latitude.

This is the same effect that had so many people unfamiliar with the phenomenon believing that baloney story last year about the giant Chinese missile being launched off the California coast.

Bwahahahahahah!!!!! I estimated the width of that missile at 2 miles ~ GINORMOUS, not just gigantic!

See the airplane silhouetted against cloud ~ give you an idea the size of that thing ~ HUGH AND SERIES!

Yes, that’s what I meant by “reflected”, being reflected from beyond the horizon.

"Can the French Press be trusted?"

Well, it may not make the best cup of coffee, but it works in a pinch.

During the last couple days, someone posted distraction propaganda claiming that skies in China are clear due to a shutdown of the Chinese economy. As you can see, it’s not happening. Keep the traitors who sponsor the propaganda in mind.
