Six cities in Hebei province made the top 10 in the ranking of 74 major cities in terms of the severity of air pollution in February, with Baoding ranked first, the environment watchdog said on Tuesday.

The consumption of coal for heating and setting off fireworks during the Spring Festival holiday were the major reasons for the increased smog in the top 10 cities, all located in northern China, according to the monthly report released by the Ministry of Environmental Protection.

The 13 cities in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region witnessed a deterioration in air quality due to the fireworks Cheap Zack Martin Jersey , and the windless weather meant the pollutants could not be dispersed quickly, the report said, adding that these cities failed to reach the national standard on 17 days during February.

But the report added that the majority of cities had seen a decline in the influence of fireworks on pollution compared to last year.

Along with the six cities in Hebei — Baoding, Xingtai, Hengshui, Shijiazhuang Cheap Tyron Smith Jersey , Tangshan and Handan, the other four cities in the top 10 were Shenyang in Liaoning province, Urumqi in Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region, Harbin in Heilongjiang province and Zhengzhou in Henan province.

The notoriously-polluted Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region reported 39.9 percent of days with air quality that met the national standard for clear air.

In response to grave situation, polluters in the region will come under stricter supervision this month.

The ministry will send 10 teams to monitor the emissions in key areas of the trilateral zone. The teams will go directly to companies in polluting industries and make random checks. Use will also be made of data from remote sensing satellites and unmanned drones.

Those companies found making illegal emissions will face tougher punishments in a bid to deter all polluters, the ministry said.

Chinese Premier Li Keqiang said Sunday China will tackle air pollution with tough punishments that will make the costs for those behind illegal production and emission "too high to bear".

Major cities are set to have improved air quality and great reduction in PM2.5-particulate matter with a diameter smaller than 2.5 microns that can penetrate the lungs and harm health-by 2017.

Hebei Cheap Jason Witten Jersey , which neighbors Beijing and the northern port city of Tianjin, is often blamed for the notorious choking smog that often seeps into neighboring regions due to its heavy industry.

The province is taking steps toward limiting the excessive number of iron and steel, glass, and concrete factories to reduce pollution. In 2014, Hebei cut coal consumption by 15 million tons, the first time that coal consumption in the province dropped year on year.

Mutations create variety in a population Cheap Dez Bryant Jersey , and Natural Selection culls out the unfavorable results. But does this process lead to macro evolution? or micro evolution? Let's check it out.

British peppered moth

Species can and do change over time. At least some of them do. One historical example is the British peppered moth. This variety of moth has made its home in Manchester, England for, well, as far back as anyone can remember. They sport a distinctive light speckled grey coloration on their wings. They perch on trees much the same color as themselves, thereby blending in nicely with their background.

Back in the 1840's, Manchester was developing into a major center of British industry. Factories blackened the local vegetation with soot and other pollutants. Against the dark soot covered trees Cheap Nolan Carroll Jersey , the lightly covered pepper moths stood out like beacons for bird predators. As you can well imagine, the moth population plummeted. That, however, is not the end of the story.

By 1848, darker colored peppered moths began showing up. By the middle of the century, the darker variety had almost completely replaced the lighter pigmented forms in the polluted areas. In unpolluted areas Cheap Stephen Paea Jersey , lighter colored pepper moths remained common. What do you make of it?

Evolutionists point to it as a good example of natural selection in action. If you read a book on evolution, you are likely to run across the peppered moth as proof of their theory. But when you think it over, it really doesn't prove much of anything.

Peppered moths can vary anywhere from jet black to almost white or any range of shades in between. If lighter shades are suddenly more vulnerable, certainly, darker shades will predominate. But for all practical purposes, they are still the same old pepper moths they always were.

They didn't gain any new organ Cheap Jaylon Smith Jersey , nor did they lose any old one. All we find is a change in the proportion of colors, and even that is temporary. Once the pollution cleared up, the population returned to its predominate peppered light grey look.
Was there any permanent change? No. Was there any "evolution?" Certainly not.

Breeding programs

Breeding programs are similar dead end tales. Breeders choose chickens that produce larger eggs, cows that yield more milk, and corn with higher protein content. But sooner or later breeders run into a natural barrier. Chickens can produce eggs only so large, cows can only give so much milk. Further genetic manipulations prove useless.

In the last century Cheap Emmitt Smith Jersey , breeders improved the quality of sheep's wool and raised the level of sugar in beets from 6 to 15 percent. Then it reached its natural limit. Every breeder knows that selective "improvements" whether plants or animals can only go so far. Furthermore, if you discontinue the artificial selection, the "improved" traits will quickly revert back to what they were before the experiment began.
