U.S. Embassy: Beijing Pollution Is 'Crazy Bad'

Audio for this story from Morning Edition is not available.

The U. S. Embassy tracks air quality in Beijing. When the air grows especially hazardous, the embassy sends out an advisory. Friday's message described air quality as "crazy bad." The embassy has since deleted that description, saying it wants to find more precise language to describe the outdoor haze.
