WI lakeshore counties under dirty air alert, but...

Here are the current facts, but don't forget that as I have been documenting repeatedly, Scott Walker's "chamber of commerce mentality" Department of Natural Resources in 2011 eliminated routine air pollution early warnings as  unhealthy conditions were building up, so by the time an advisory is issued like this one today, below, people with asthma, cardiovascular conditions and other health concerns were outdoors unaware that air quality was known to be deteriorating.

For shame, Wisconsin. This is not public service:
