Air pollution, turning the sky red

I've found out from trawling through pollution/environmental sites that certain particles of pollution that get into the atmosphere can turn the sky a russet-red colour. Does anyone know what kind of pollution would do this and what level of it would be needed to give the sky a permanent red tinge over industrial cities? At the current rate of pollution how long would it take to happen and if pollution were suddenly reduced to almost nothing how long could it be expected to persist?

Days of googling for information has found me next to nothing so I'd be really grateful if anyone could come up with anything, though I realise it's a difficult question to answer. Thank you!
