Mysterious ‘black snow’ in Kazakhstan sparks investigation

Recommended Posts

Authorities in the central Kazakh city of Temirtau have launched an investigation after a mysterious dust turned the snow black. Local residents have blamed the metallurgical complex in the area for causing the strange pollution.

A winter wonderland was turned into a rather depressing view in early January, when a layer of soot-like dust covered the Kazakh city. Temirtau residents took to social media to share their pictures and footage of snow piles coated with black dust.

“How is it possible to live in a such city? Look at this dirty snow and dust settling on clothes. It’s hard to breathe, I suffer from asthma,” one local woman complained, as she signed a petition “against black snow.” More than 5,000 people have put their names to the letter so far, calling on the authorities to take action against the pollution.

Whatever it is, they're breathing it. Here it's invisible. Most of the time. Poison that is.

Don't eat the yellow, or black snow. Just inhale and exhale the wonderful, crisp, winter air that nature has given us all.
