Wisconsin's Bad Air Finally Makes Major Media News

Sunday's Journal Sentinel carried an article about the unhealthy alerts that had become numerous in recent weeks, when we usually see them on humid hot days.

I had begun noticing the number of such alerts issued by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, and posted blog items about them on January 5th, 2008, December 30th, 21st, 19th and 11th of 2007.

A sample is here.

And let's not forget that it is the position of the Wisconsin Manufacturers & Commerce that air quality standards in Southeastern Wisconsin should be relaxed.

I've also posted more than once about this, too, with one example here.
