Farewell to fumes

A 210-meter-high chimney at the Jialing Power Plant falls to the ground after a directional blasting in downtown Chengdu, Sichuan province on August 10, 2011. It was toppled out of environmental concerns and was the city's tallest chimney. A ton of explosive were used in the demolition and more than 10,000 residents were temporarily moved.
