    [img_assist|nid=172140|title=Seoul Smog|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=100|height=67]Seoul has a reputation for being one of the worst cities in the world in terms of smog. In the summer months, city goers even wear surgical masks over their faces to minimize how much soot they breath. Because of a rapid industrialization project in the 1970s, the air pollution in Seoul quickly became a problem. There is also some indication that some of the pollution is caused by acid rain from China. 

    [img_assist|nid=172143|title=Saving Seoul|desc=|link=none|align=left|width=100|height=67]This problem may not be for long, however, as Seoul recently has begun to make a transformation into a greener city. The mayor of the city since 2002 has put his green ideas to work at making Seoul eco-friendlier, and cleaning up the city. Read more about Seoul’s greening at the link below 🙂
