No, “Asian Brown Cloud” isn’t a new coffee blend that goes with lots of whipped cream. It’s a vast and very dense blanket of pollution that hovers all over South Asia and in other parts of the world, and it can possibly kill you when left unchecked.

If you’ve been wondering what’s causing all this crazy weather changes, this could partly be the reason for it. The cloud is two miles thick, cools the ground but causes heat in the atmosphere. Add that to the greenhouse effect, acid rain, and your hairspray, and it’s really going to be tough living here on earth.

We should consider migrating to the other parts of the universe then. That is, unless you can get Captain Planet to save the world.
