A wax museum in Taiyuan, Shanxi province held an environmental performance art show yesterday wherein all the visitors as well as more than 10 wax statues of celebrities, including PSY, Kim Jong-un, Barack Obama, Mr. Bean and Michael Jackson, were “required” to wear anti-dust masks, NetEase News reports.
The organizer aimed to remind people to protect the environment, travel with low carbon and fight against the smoggy weather.
The Air Quality Index read 127, considered unhealthy, in some Shanxi cities today. The National Meteorological Center yesterday warned that a blanket of smog was headed towards Beijing and Tianjin as well as some parts of Hebei and Henan. Monitoring data also observed that more northeastern and northwestern regions in China, as well as areas south of the Yangtze River, were experiencing worse haze than usual
