Pollution in Mexico City

AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :

Award-winning contributor Postandfly used a drone to document one of the darker sides of Mexico City: its pollution.  He flew a drone out over the Mexican capital on one of its worst air quality days yet, providing a compelling visual testament to the limits of urban growth.  The largest city in the Western Hemisphere, Mexico City's smog is a function not just of its size but the fact that it's in a valley surrounded by mountains.  It's a combination that can yield conditions like what you'll see here.
