That Mysterious Smog

Here's the view of central Bogotá these days in the morning from the high end of La Candelaria. Smog causes thousands of premature deaths every year in Bogotá alone, but authorities do nothing about it.

According to this blog's secret sources in City Hall, the Petro administration has hired top scientists to clear up the mystery of where this deadly smoke is coming from, in order to finally do something about it. Apparently, these scientists need another 10 or 15 years at least for the job, because pollution sources such as cars, trucks, buses and industry are very difficult to identify, much less sanction, when they have lots of political influence.
