LOOK: Dexing Officials Insist Eerie Pink Sky Not Caused By Smog
Want to see the world through rose-colored glasses? You can in Dexing, where the sky turned an eerie pink hue earlier this week, prompting residents to speculate whether or not it was caused by pollution.
Officials assured them that it was a natural phenomenon caused by light being filtered through thickening clouds. They claimed, "there are two factories where the photos were taken, and one manufactures plastic containers, the other produces sulfuric acid. Neither generates any waste that can cause the sky to turn pink."
Though considering the amazing feats that Chinese airpocalypse has been responsible for before -- giving an 8-year-old lung cancer, making bacteria stronger and turning rivers every color of the rainbow -- we can see how residents might wonder if it had a hand in the citywide pinkeye epidemic.
