Russia Hell Smog Causation (PIC)

| August 10, 2010

Scorching heat and acrid smoke have nearly doubled death rates in Moscow. Where does the smoke come from? It is actually coming from the raging fire from the forest nearby. Firefighters battled wildfires covering 1,740 square km (1,075 sq miles) in what the state weather forecaster said was Russia’s worst heat wave for a millennium. The average death rate in the city during normal times is between 360 and 380 people per day! It’s more than 40 degrees (Celsius, or 104 Fahrenheit) on the street. Can you imagine? It is HELL!
