Air pollution: a conundrum?

Two links here: Santiago largely shut down because of air pollution (it’s location exacerbates the smog problem); then a major discussion on gobal health. It highlights the problem of fossil fuels, and interestingly states that lack of political will is now the major hurdle to a low carbon reality, instead of absence of knowledge or technology. Various reports are mentioned in the second link. The conundrum is saving all the peoples’ lives adds to to our global population pressure. No easy answers.

      I posted a comment but above it is a line “waiting for moderation.” Thus, I am waiting until tonight because tomorrow morning I will be heading to the forest again for about one month with one break of travel to the marine site. Salam. Ating

        Hi Ating, I’m pleased to see that you are around. I will figure out how can I eliminate the necessity of approval comments from higher level members, like each of you. Interestingly the current framework does not always requires my approval when any of you send a new comment.
        Anyway, for how long time will you be away? I’d like to hear something about the idea of BA from you. Do you like it? Do you consider to participate as a founder? What do you miss? ….?????
        Best regards,
        Janos
