How about the air quality in July?



The raining season has started, most of the burning has stopped for the moment and had some rain this morning but at the moment a blue sky with some clouds and a cool breeze. Lovely weather and at the moment the US AQI is 17 here with a PM2.5 of 4.1 µg/m3. That is a huge different with 27 March 2020 when the US AQI was 108 here with a PM2.5 of 38.2 µg/m3. Hopefully we will enjoy this lovely clean air until at least end of February 2021. Then the burning will start again. And again suddenly everybody is shocked and everybody is screaming that something will be done. Keep on dreaming ... the cheap agriculture products supply the elite with a good profit. So the farmers in will keep on producing short-term agriculture like corn and cassava. And again many people living will directly and indirectly die of air pollution. The forest in the mountains will be cut down and nobody sees it until in the raining season there are mud-slides. And also then suddenly everybody is shocked and everybody is screaming that something will be done. But again ... keep on dreaming.

P.s. Photo has again been made from our balcony, overlooking the now filled rice paddies.
