real NEOans - did you notice difficulty breathing today... all week... especially near downtown?

NOACA has an explanation. The air in urban Cleveland is highly polluted and causing you harm.

You and your community are sick from pollution today. Don't push yourself or the environment here... Mittal needs all the fresh air and carbon credits available to make steel... MCCO and Cleveland Thermal must burn coal, even on a day like today...  cap and trade, Clevelanders, cap and trade.

We have been under NOACA air advisories for every day since Sunday, and the air has been unhealthy all week... high for ozone and particulates each day and night, on and off, without real relief. The NOACA air advisory issued Sunday gave the following explanation:

High temperatures and almost no wind for Sunday and Monday will likely bring ground-level ozone formation in the late afternoon on each of those days. An Air Quality Advisory has been issued for the counties of Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Lorain, Medina, Summit, Geauga, Lake and Portage for August 29 and 30.  All counties will be equally affected, as well as other large portions of the Midwest".

The NOACA advisory for today and tomorrow is much more revealing, explaining "the Air Quality Advisory for the counties of Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Lorain, Medina, Summit, Geauga, Lake and Portage has been continued. Lake County, and possibly Ashtabula and Geauga, will see the greatest ozone formation as urban air pollution from Cuyahoga drifts eastward".

Rather than explaining away the problem as common to all citizens of the Midwest or region, today's advisory acknowledges Northeast Ohioans are excessively polluted because of "urban air pollution from Cuyahoga County", AKA Mittal and many coal burning facilities like MCCO. Today's NOACA advisory acknowledges "Downtown Cleveland and downtown Akron may experience high levels of fine particulates"... but they only attribute that to weather and vehicle emissions.

Why not witness and thank the contribution from our great industrialists in town.

Cliffs played a big role in the whole LTV/ISG/Mittal raping of America that made Cleveland ground zero of environmental injustice today... made big money on the "deal" with Ross... and Cliffs owns many of LTVs bankrupt assets today, stolen from American citizens during the Cliffs-orchestrated and -financed LTV-bankruptcy... hell, Cliffs even employs the old executive vice president, operations, for Mittal Steel USA, WILLIAM A. BRAKE, JR., as Executive Vice President, Strategic Alternatives & CTO at Cliffs... and Mittal and Cliffs are involved in joint operations, mergers and acquisitions worldwide today...

Cliffs is Mittal.

And for some insane reason, Cliffs wants us to witness their evil..

Witness what goes down for Cliffs and Mittal when NOACA becomes accurate measuring pollution levels and sources here, like from Mittal... and so Cliffs, and citizens and their lawyers learn the harm caused to citizens by Cliffs and their lawyers here. 

Cliffs may wish to disappear into one of their dirty coal mines in a less developed part of the world, and prey to a greater God..

In fact, corrupt Ohio politics allowed poor industrial planning, lacking consideration for environmental factors in urban Cleveland, across the region, and statewide, leaving the people of Cleveland and surrounding communities subject to excessive polluting each day, and it will drift whichever way the wind is blowing at the time it is emitted - NOACA may as well acknowledge that each day, and help us map out the truth for our futures


Onf of many EPA Air Pollution advisory signs outside Dallas, Texas, where smog is a constant health concern

The mainstream media certainly should acknowledge the pollution health crisis here, as well.

Has anyone seen any coverage of the poor air quality this week in any of the mainstream media?

That would actually encourage people to care about the environment, reduce energy consumption, reducing pollution... Illuminati wouldn't want us to do that would they?

Definitely not!

That would actually benefit society, rather than profit polluters and their media ownership interests... and they certainly get lots of "free" press.

Or is journalism and advertising a package deal, at the Plain Dealer... and NOACA can't afford to go against Cliffs, in this Illuminati world.

Read the least alarming interpretation of your air quality today, and realize this isn't half the story here... and it is awful.

Northeast Ohio - Due to continued high temperatures and stagnant air, the Air Quality Advisory for the counties of Ashtabula, Cuyahoga, Lorain, Medina, Summit, Geauga, Lake and Portage has been continued.
 
Lake County, and possibly Ashtabula and Geauga, will see the greatest ozone formation as urban air pollution from Cuyahoga drifts eastward.  Downtown Cleveland and downtown Akron may experience high levels of fine particulates due to motor vehicles and a lack of wind. 

Older adults, children, and those with heart or respiratory conditions are advised to be aware of their health when exercising outdoors.
 

What You Can Do 
 
Please carpool or ride the bus this week.

 

Don't idle your vehicle.
 
Drive gently - easy on the gas, easy on the brakes, to get great miles per gallon and put out less pollution.
