伦敦再现“雾都”景象

【Related News】

提到伦敦最有名的绰号,“雾都”应该是大家的第一反应。这个绰号可也真是名不虚传。进入11月以来,伦敦持续大雾,整个城市笼罩着一股神秘复古的色彩~
 
不过大家可以放心,现在伦敦上空的“雾”只是自然的天气现象,并非是上世纪中叶出现过的致命“雾霾”。大雾中的伦敦地标建筑物穿越感十足。

伦敦历史上曾发生过非常严重的雾霾污染事件(The Great Smog of 1952)。1952年12月5日-9日,雾霾笼罩伦敦,约有4000人因雾霾死亡,上百万人的生活受到影响。此后,一系列相关法律出台,伦敦在空气污染的防治上取得成功,致命的雾霾成为了历史。
 

Forecasters have warned that the thick fog which has been causing disruption at UK airports is likely to return for a third day on Tuesday (Nov 2).
 
The capital's famous buildings were given a haunting quality by the dense mist which covered much of the country today.
 
Meanwhile air passengers will face another day of disruption as another raft of flights are cancelled due to dense fog.
 
After 50 flights were cancelled at Heathrow yesterday and early today around 10 per cent of departures from the airport were 'pre-cancelled'.
 
Smog had become a frequent part of London life, but nothing quite compared to the smoke-laden fog that shrouded the capital from Friday 5 December to Tuesday 9

December 1952. While it heavily affected the population of London, causing a huge death toll and inconveniencing millions of people, the people it affected were also partly to blame for the smog.
 
【Key Points】

在英文中,haze可以指细小的尘埃、烟或污染物降低空气能见度的情况,中文是“灰霾”。而smog则是smoke(烟)+ fog(雾),中文叫“雾霾”。
