Simplified

So air pollution, not 維他命 (wéitāmìng) or 維生素 (wéishēngsù), is the problem in 北京 (běijīng), Beijing.

 

The must-know word today is 霧霾 (wù mái), meaning haze.

 

霧 (wù) is fog or mist.

 

霾 (mái), meaning haze, has 貍 (lí), meaning raccoon, in it. You would think it is pronounced lí; but, no, it’s mái. Don’t ask me why.

 

By the way, whenever you see a character with 雨 (yǔ), meaning rain, you know it has to do with weather or related things.
