Where I come from ( SE Asia ), its a norm that every year our neighboring country will pollute the air with it’s open jungle burning to clear them for the next crop season plantin and there’s nothing we can do about it… sigh…

I really think that the more people know the better their decisions are.

Some other scientists that I work with are are analyzing exhaled breath — not to check for alcohol — to see if we can tell what chemicals the person has been exposed to. The bugs are still being worked out but there’s a whole group of scientists, internationally, working on that. Maybe one day, a routine test at the dr’s office will be to exhale into a tube and get a reading of our exposures… Very cool.

Stay safe, Rabbi.

Best,
Robin

Where is your Orange County??
About getting ozone forecasts placed on a specific site in a specific place may be bitg of a challenge. Lemme check around and I’ll get back to you.
Later,
Robin

I live in Orange County now but you’d think that i could at least get a good ozone forcast on my yahoo home page. do you think that the epa could eventually have the ozone levels right next to the weather on our internet homepages… it might be the easiest way to get the information out. just a thought.

My town is LaJunta — close to the Kansas border and to Fort Bent. How’d you like Hugo?? I’m thinking that LJ and Hugo may have competed in football in jr high. When did you visit Hugo?

Hugo — wow, I think my jr high school football team played your team. We probably lost…..

I’m from LaJunta — closer to Kansas than to the mountains. LJ was about 11,000 when I was young.

Tell me about Hugo.
