2. Thanks for the reply... I'm not ill.

"the problem they participate in creating" I think the number is 52%. Much of it comes from CA and NV but still the regulations on the refineries are not adhered to. I'm a night person and I see the air scrubbers turn off all the time... only at night though. The inversion problem is the only thing we can't change but it means we have to make the effort all the more. Respiratory illness here is rampant and I would think that should be more important to deal with than adding to industrial profits and driving personal luxury vehicles on a whim.

I don't begrudge your need to survive rather than freeze in your truck, but honestly that isn't but a small portion of the problem compared to the apathy of the people who live here and continue to consume and discard far beyond what is reasonable or necessary when they could do otherwise.
