Since this probably won’t be reported in the Western media

Air Quality Index




  1. You are right of course. We have noticed the improvement as well. But then, they won’t report a Seattle Air Quality Index of 5 (!!!!!!!!) last week. What happened is simple. After experiencing 800, we’re happy with 200. In many places around the world 200 is unacceptable. By the way, as I am writing this, it is 26 (!!).

    1. The 800 bothers me. The official scale stops at 500. There has been worse pollution than what we had this year, but it *never* went above 500. I’ve seen absolutely no explanation of the change. Checkout the official websites… everything stops at 500.
