Comments on: Having a Safe Vacation in the Midst of Air Pollution http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2011/07/having-a-safe-vacation-in-the-midst-of-air-pollution/ The EPA Blog Thu, 30 Jul 2015 11:15:11 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.1 By: Sarah http://blog.epa.gov/blog/2011/07/having-a-safe-vacation-in-the-midst-of-air-pollution/#comment-21961 Wed, 13 Jul 2011 17:09:16 +0000 http://blog.epa.gov/blog/?p=8694#comment-21961 Thank you for your reply! Yes, as you have noted, the intention of my post is purely to provide advice and some warning to those who are more susceptible to environmental risks, and not to issue critiques as to why air pollution still exists, whose fault it is, etc.

I have personally experienced increased symptoms during high AQI days. Is it better than prior to the Clean Air Act? Yes. Is it still possible for those with health issues to be susceptible to environmental pollution and irritants? Also yes. I commend the initiative of this posting in lieu of posting petty critiques.

Also yes. Give me a break! My hats off to a college student who takes the initiative to post instead of only spending time issuing petty critiques.

With the clean act regulations I surmise that it would be extremely hard to find such operating today. If one did then the state or fed regulatory agency incharge is falling down on their job. if I am in error in my thinking, please send location of such a site. thanks, wade harter, engineer

I and my wife are “59” and will be visiting my Mom, who turns “89” this September, in a suburb of big, bad, dirty-air New York City. Do you suppose that just maybe the forest fires outside of Taos—or in CA every year or so—might be a far bigger concern than those “congested urban areas”?
