Default Bad air

Here's the daily chart for the elite to pick to pieces. I didn't think Riyadh was that bad to be honest.

Can get very dusty when the sand blows in.

See a lot of people wearing masks out and about etc.

I agree MH, very surprised to see Riyadh so high up the list. Jeddah and Dammam are much more polluted than Riyadh as are Dubai and Kuwait City.

Interesting that they have two places in Bahrain even though the whole island is not much bigger than a football pitch

I think the issue is PM10 - this is particulate matter, normally from diesel engines.

Beijing's air quality is actually a lot better than many people think(!) - while it is shockingly terrible, some of it is as a result of fog (I've been three times, and on two occasions it was beautiful). It has also improved a lot in the last few years.

That said, if the chart was PM2.5 or NOx, Beijing may well feature much higher.

Dammam/Dhahran/Khobar are bad. You can see the haze over the motirway system Emissions for cars. Jubail is also bad - ditto plus gunge from petrochemical plants. Medic there told me that he had never seen such a high incidence of breathing problems anywhere.
