OK, I'm very concerned about the air quality in the entire Gulf Coast.
I think Houston is getting the brunt of the unhealthy air from the oil catastrophe
right now. Look at the chart.
Health Message: Active children and adults, and people with lung disease, such as asthma, should avoid prolonged or heavy exertion outdoors. Everyone
else, especially children, should reduce prolonged or heavy exertion outdoors.
It appears that Ozone levels are in the unhealthy area.
Ozone near the ground is created through a series of chemical reactions involving sunlight, oxides of nitrogen - a product of fossil fuel combustion
in motor vehicles, power plants, industrial boilers and so on -
Now, hurricane travel from the Atlantic and into the Gulf, and sometimes towards Texas. This would suggest that normal winds carry air from the Gulf,
over Texas, or onshore winds.
Could the burning of the oil be creating this ozone alert?
Just thought those in Texas might want to know.
