       The blue skies above many Chinese cities disappear for days, sometimes for weeks on end. People in those cities look up to find a low ceiling of grey pollution, which sometimes descends and surrounds them in a thick haze (雾霾) of poisonous air making them feel as if they are in a science fiction film.
  A new film, Under the Dome (《穹顶之下》), is not science fiction; it’s a documentary about the pollution problem in China. The film explains the dangers of pollution, what causes pollution and what should be done to solve the problem. It was released online last week and has already been watched by 100 million people.
  Chai Jing(柴静), a former CCTV reporter, made the film with her own money because the pollution problem in China has become a personal issue with her. Chai’s daughter was born with a tumor(肿瘤) which she believes was related to Beijing’s bad air and she worries about the health problems her child and millions of other Chinese children will face in the future.
  According to some studies, as many as one million people die prematurely each year because of pollution. And, in some cities, people’s life expectancy is reduced by five-and-a-half years.
  Everyone knows that pollution is a big problem and the government has made the fight against pollution a priority. Chai hopes her film will encourage people to join together to solve China’s pollution problem by reducing their energy consumption and by pressuring industries to stop polluting. In this way, she believes, we can stop living “under the dome” and once again breathe the healthy air of clear blue skies.
