We often take the air we breathe for granted, but new data reveals that the pollutants behind millions of preventable deaths now taint the air most of us breathe at unhealthy levels.

“Can’t you smell it? It’s the smell of freedom! Don’t you love son to live in the cradle of capitalism instead of a communist authoritarian hell hole where they try to bring this out? Son, why you so pale and blue?”

tbh where I live the air steadily got better since the revolution against our “communist” authoritarian government. (only english article I could find, idk that company but the data seems correct) For a brief moment in the early 90s we even met our climate goals, just by abolishing socialism :D

Believe it or not the air quality in your country can be further improved if all the remaining industry is shut down as well. For the low price of widespread unemployment, hunger and poverty you can get substantially better quality air to breathe in.

Because socialism is also about industrialization while in the 80’s the industry was a shit load of fuck everywhere.

So, congrats, less working places.

You used some shallow rhetoric so I participated in shitposting. You stated the obvious to which I responded with humor because I was unsure if you are joking or just stupid. By that I owned myself apparently.

The Dyson headphones/mask looks silly now but in a few years maybe filters are going to be like sunscreen

Where we are heading, we will certainly need more than just sunscreen or masks, unfortunately.

I starting wearing N95 masks years before Covid-19 reared up. The air being under AQI100 is a rarity where I live and +400 not unheard of.

Those are some rough numbers, is it from industrial impact something else?

The really high numbers are from semiannual ag burning while the steady high number is from the geographic location in a valley that seems to trap most automotive exhaust.

Yeah the only moment you should be wearing N95/FFP2 masks is when they’ve chemtrailed a lot or if you live in a heavily polluted area …
