Air pollution levels in Taiwan - grim reading

Yeah I suppose I really need to actually quantify the fine particles in my place to know how that compromise pans out. Other than using the BS ppm readouts on these purifiers which I think we established on this thread are pretty rough.

I think this was last week !

I wrote a bot that will pull data on air quality in my area 3x a day and alert us in our family group in Line messenger if AQI is over 100.

It is usually pretty quiet, but last week was constant alerts.

The air in northern Taiwan is pretty foul today. Everyone should stay indoors with the windows shut.

Holy smoke, 157 on my little app here. Thanks.

China’s fault.

Which is in turn our fault, for buying all their cheap stuff.

Is china fault but not entirely, last weekend I went out and all the farmer where burning

Today is ENTIRELY China’s fault.

sure, Taiwan doesn’t pollute the environment, we are super green

No it’s not.
There that was easy as I look at the cars and scooters streaming by and the dude burning his ghost money on the sidewalk.

Holy shit, today the air in Taipei is almost as bad as a regular day in Taichung.

Truth. Thanks for putting that in perspective! #blessed to live where it’s only sometimes horrendously polluted :neutral_face:

What a load of crap.

Correct it is a load of crap floating around us. :grin:

Sky looks quite beautiful in Taichung today and nice temperature. Air quality not so great.

That’s how Taichung gets you. Never too hot, never too cold, not a lot of rain…then you basically start breathing air with the same quality of a race car exhaust, but by the time you notice it it’s too late.
