  1. There were places in the region I grew up in 50yrs ago where your eyes burned and the air stunk to high Heaven. Things are way better….I point that out to levi wearing, iphone yackin eco-hipstercrits often.

  2. Dirty Birds over at Audubon – sneaking in a global warming story disguised as an “improving air pollution” story (see the end of the article).
