No longer will OSAS vx OSNAS be allowed to be debated, argued, or discussed in theology forum. Too much time is required to monitor and rescources used to debate this subject which hasn't been definitively decided in 3,000 years.
That's a good idea. I can add that, more and more people are spending more time at home lately and indoor air quality is very important. A sick bit of trivia...all of the dust that has accumulated in your furnace & air conditioner system and the duct-work...is, human and animal skin cells. It's mostly not dirt at all.
It is a huge health benefit to have the duct-work of your home HVAC system cleaned by a good outfit. I've worked alongside of some of these guys, and they do great work. So turn on the air filter, but after you've cleaned the system.
I live on a farm. Don't have AC. We do use a whole house fan at night in the summer that brings fresh air in through all the windows.
I hike almost daily and do a good bit of outside chores.
I am sixty-five and I guess my lungs are ok.
Farms in rural areas would likely have clean air. Its the majority who dwell in cities who have to filter out pollution. The American Lung Association stated that 141 million Americans dwell in cities that got an F grade for air quality.
So 141 million Americans should filter their air. Most rural areas are fine the way they are. People who are sensitive to pollution in counties with a C or D grade might also want to filter.
Don't even ask about the pollution in cities like Bombay in India. Their pollution is from the outer limits. They should filter the air in their homes, and put a filter on their face when walking outdoors.
Developed countries are working on pollution. Enough or not I am not expert on.
Developing nations are more an issue.
It's not just the here and now. There is an effect on our bodies, and I lean towards an effect on the climate.
Despite what the president says. His EPA and Department of the Interior heads were from the coal and oil industries. Those things aren't evil incarnate, but they are somewhat at odds with what many environmentalists want for the planet.
Perhaps something between extremes. But this administration is rolling back on regulations.
If the air and water are cleaner you don't need to filter as much.
And unclean air doesn't just hover over the sources. It moves around the entire planet.
i sometimes wonder if global heating is as big an issue as those (mostly on the left...) make it out to be. im not a 'conspiracy theorist' or anything, its just...
a random thought/concern/question.
developing nations have a lot to deal with...modernization, pockets of deep poverty, inequality, on and on. seems like there should be more international collaboration and cooperation on ways to move forward in all respects, including -not- destroying the earth (please).
rivers do create emmisions that it has happened to me, algea blooms can kill, cause a lung issue. currently the swamp way out west is doing that. the blasts of sand rich in iron cause a type of red tide which leads to this.
