    If you want to live, I advise you to stop breathing immediately.

    What you don't realize is that most of that pollution is actually being generated by you in the way of fast food containers and empty pop cans!

    Well the official "motivation" is that my zone terrain morphology is the cause of the pollution, the alps block all the winds coming from north so the toxic gases stay here...

    ...but I suspect it's the pizzas ovens too! :p

    What's the scale of that? Sure, living in the middle of a red spot is kinda scary, but what's the absoulte difference between the middle of the red spot and the blue zones?

    Gabriel, Said it plain simple... I live in the most polluted zone in THE WORLD :eek:

    I don't live in a city: but here, in this zone (mostly all north-Italy) the pollution is everywhere, not only in big cities...

    No wonder I got all those health problems lately... well I hope to leave soon !

    Well, strange that Holland is so polluted then, not a single mountain here!

    Anyway, glad to see it's only orange where I live.

    Of course, this chart only shows the amount of nitrogen dioxide in the air. I wonder how harmful this "pollution" really is. (Although no doubt less NO2 in the air would be better.)

    N02 when combined with water produces (one incarnation of) acid rain. It's not very good to breathe either because it's pretty damaging to lung tissue.

    I've lived in Baltimore for about 18 months. The summer of 2003, there were three or four orange alerts where people were advised to stay indoors or not do any strenuous physical activity outdoors. This summer I don't recall any alerts being issued (apart from the security ones!)

    I think China's possibly worse - there was a news report on the BBC's web site the other day saying that the Chinese government advised people not to go outdoors because the pollution/smog was so bad in one region.

    :eek: I'm in top right Spanish red spot.

    Some months ago was released a medical statistic that concluded that man from Barcelona had some of the poorest sperma :eek: of Europe, I think I'll have to go to the mountain.

    There's also a world map, somewhere in the site. I linked the european one only because I wanted to show my country :)

    Wow that must be hurting the adult movie market in your region ! :D

    I couldn't find anything else on that site. I even went to the root, but all I got was a blank page. There's a US map found on the EPA site here, if you're interested. It generally looks good today.
