I thought the past week’s sunrise, sunset and moons have looked awesome. Thanks pollution!
Funny thing is, in the 40s and 50s, what NYC is “suffering” through, was every day Pittsburgh. Imagine Cleveland, Detroit and other. Back then, smoking cigarettes was like eating chips now. Likely knew it wasn’t good for health, but not what we know now. Which likely means in 20-30 years, chips will have surgeons general warnings? They said on the news that yesterday, NYC had the worst air quality in the world. So, some other cities in the world, that is every day life…. In those cities, kids breathe in that air without knowing, no shoes, never seen an iPad. We talk about NYC being apocalyptic and if kids don’t have an iPad, they are in poverty. What is really the difference in life expectancy?
Maybe the drill, baby drill crowd has it right? I’ve never been a tree hugger, but have thought environmentally responsibly. But does it really make a difference? Do we want to give up such nice red moons?
