Bad air quality throughout many WI Counties

Not good news on this deceptively pleasant day- - and worse - - the air quality was building to this point hours before the DNR issued the advisory. Why? Read this, as I've said on this blog for years:

...remember that the DNR in 2011 ended the "watches," so when you get this important "advisory" - - a better word would be "warning" - - the unhealthy situation is already here.

Bad air is the perfect companion to CAFO feces & urine contaminated water. Wisconsin is sinking into cesspool, literally! How 'bout that Walker guy!
