    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.

        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.

    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.

        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 …
