    Well when humans actually start to care about something that be their air and need clean air clean water but hey they also need another house another building etc so u can’t have all expect clean air

  5. BUT REPUBLICANS KEEP TELLING ME THAT HUMANS DOES NOT EFFECT THE AIR QUALITY…

  6. And eventually we all have to breathe that air

    • In some places, like my city, we already are, and nothing is burning.

      I live in a place surrounded by mountains and because we have grown so much, the air pollution is horrible and it has nowhere to go.

      Lately, I started having problems breathing and I was sure it was a panic attack…or pulmonary embolism.

      But no, the doctor said it was bad allergies aggravated by the air quality

      I have lived here all my life and this is the first time I go through this and I’m thinking of moving.

      I’m sure I’ll suffocate if I dont

  7. Bet it smells like armpit

    This is America after four more years of Trump

    • @Jeremy Gregorio The system is twofold: There are a high number of scientists, engineers, and doctors that genuinely are curious, high-minded, and want to be involved in the profession. However, there is a percentage among those that want the money, and even more importantly, there is a percentage that wants both the money and the important career because they love it. It is that overlap as well as that margin that can make or break an economy, and when you get into entrepreneurship when the exponential curve really begins to take off, that’s where the most critical difference between socialism and capitalism comes in. Again, it’s not a question of whether people will take the jobs.

      @Mulinaster It’s really not. They can all make lots more money working for Wall Street and they don’t. Face it, you’ve been lied too

    • @Jeremy Gregorio The problem is that not everyone has the skills required. People eventually become pragmatic enough about life to find a niche, what they’re good at, what they’re interested in, and juxtapose that with the amount of money they want to earn. The margin exists in both the rare person who can achieve even in areas they are not wired to do, as well as those with enough entrepreneurial inclinations to improve their lot in life through dedication and incentive they otherwise wouldn’t bother with under a socialist system. It’s that “extra push” that gives an economy momentum and pulls everyone else with it – and that effect does not exist in a socialist system.

      @Mulinaster That’s not a problem. You’re wildly overestimating how many people need to work to maintain society. And that number is dropping rapidly

    • ​@Jeremy Gregorio You can’t disentangle the objective ability to maintain society(the precise amount of resources required) with human self-satisfaction and self-actualization. As an economy grows, so too does wealth inequality tend to expand as a result of Pareto, so too are people bound to be displaced by natural selection. From the standpoint of a holistic view of the economy, the only thing automation does is push the domain of viable productivity as a human being squarely into the realm of mental ability and creativity; fast absorption of information and high IQ curves. Manual jobs are erased, and the curve for valuable labor flattens and increases exponentially at the far end. This was the case for UBI, but the problem is that we are curing a symptom rather than the problem – people being mentally productive requires education and a reinforcement of capitalist principles, if anything, to ensure that the natural distribution of valuable labor is well represented.

  9. That’s mainly because of stubble burning after harvesting paddy. After diwali firecrackers, it crossed 999 (beyond which reading is not possible) in India.

  10. Looks just like Los Angeles 20 years ago before the Clean Air Act made an impact.

  11. We’re moving backwards on air pollution. Time to act.

    Sorry how’s the situation in Flint? Any updates?

  13. Hackers know the truth.

  14. Yeah no school!

  15. We need to burn more beutiful, clean coal, the planet is not dying quickly enough for our alien overlords to take over.

  16. For a moment my mind assumed it was Delhi.

  17. Oh well I hope the countries who pollute the most suffer the most

    Driving into Houston from the south you can see the dome of crap. 20 yrs ago a study said any baby born and raised in Harris County for 12 yrs would have permanent lung damage. not might, would. That area never did get into EPA compliance and now that 45 has gutted environmental policy…hope the next real president undoes all he messed up immediately rather than the laborous legislative process we went through the first time. Meanwhile , look up Ridgedale farm and regenerative ag practices we can push for to heal ourselves and the little bit of planet we can save.

    This a damn shame. If the bomb’s don’t kill them , the pollution will. Why in the hell won’t the leader’s of them countries do something about that?? They should keep up with the time’s… it’s Horrible…. it’s not like these Billionaire’s haven’t heard of it. Modernise your Country.

  20. Just pass a law that makes schools ‘toxic smog free zones’. Problem solved.
