VBS.TV have just released another in their video documentary series "toxic". Their latest is "Toxic Linfen: China, the worlds most polluted city." While discussions of the at times an almost non existent blue sky over parts of China, as it's residents inhale ridiculous levels of Carbon Monoxide, Carbon Dioxide, etc, are nothing new, the world's media has been reporting on this for some time now. Toxic Linfen, approaches the issue in it's own way, offering an in-depth study, a somewhat bleak look at one Chinese city, one of the top twenty most polluted cities in the world (Linfen) and the effect it's reliance on coal is having on it's residents and the surrounding environment. Also explored in Toxic Linfen is the health of the Chinese nationalized coal industry and China's efforts on Beijing.
