Philadelphia Area Air Quality Alert

Sunday, June 11th, 2017

By Daniel Brouse

Ozone Alert -- Unsafe to Breath

Ozone Alert — Unsafe to Breath

Many days in the Philadelphia region are not healthy for breathing. On “Ozone Action Alert Days” you are advised to avoid outside activities. Children should not play outdoors. Avoid running and other fitness activities. Do not breathe in un-conditioned air. Low level ozone is volatile and causes micro-explosions in your lungs that result in chronic respiratory and immune system damage. The more and harder you breathe, the more damage you cause to your body. Avoid exercise.

Pollution is the leading cause of death and illness. Low level (tropospheric) ozone is a major contributor to air pollution diseases.

June 11, 2017 is one of those days:

March For Science

Saturday, April 22nd, 2017

by Daniel Brouse

PHILADELPHIA, PA — The March For Science protest was held in over 500 cities worldwide. The Trump administration has invented many fake news stories and alternative facts including climate change is a hoax, vaccines are dangerous and the best way to protect the environment is through economic growth.

Hundreds of thousands of scientists and science lovers came out on Earthday 2017 to support science and technology. Philadelphia’s march stretched for 14 blocks across the entire street from City Hall to Penn’s Landing.
