Air District Issues 3rd Straight Spare the Air Alert for Tuesday

September 26, 2016 19:00 pm · 8 comments

The Bay Area’s intense heat wave prompted regional air quality officials today to issue another Spare the Air smog alert for Tuesday.

It’s the third consecutive day of smog alerts from the Bay Area Air Quality Management District.

“This latest heat wave is converting car exhaust from our crowded highways into unhealthy smog,” air district executive officer Jack Broadbent said in a statement. “Unless we reduce the number of cars on roads we will
continue to experience unhealthy air when temperatures rise.”

People are encouraged to carpool, bike, walk or take public transportation to work and school instead of driving alone. Also, people should exercise outdoors only during the early morning hours when smog concentrations are lowest.

There is no wood-burning ban in place and no free public transportation trips are being offered.

This is the 25th time this season that the air district has issued a Spare the Air alert, tying a record set in 1996, according to air district officials.

Monday afternoon about 2 – 4 pm the wind will pick back up from the west.
Until then enjoy the effects of an overbuilt Bay Area which has exceeded it’s people limit.

If you have any doubt as to what is coming for summer STA days think back to start of the air district and state regulations when democrats said if you upgrade to an EPA certified pellet stove you will be able to us it on winter Spare The Air days.

Government ORDERED driving bans are coming.

“Unless we reduce the number of cars on roads we will continue to experience unhealthy air when temperatures rise.”

Here is a thought, since this IS kaliforniastan, the Land of Over Regulation, why not declare this and every following YEAR a Spare the Air YEAR!

With a day tossed in here and there for normal, human activity. Like having an out door fire once a season. Or a Bar-B-Cue at home.

Or something really risking, heavy breathing!

Surely the Overseers in charge of the slaves in dnc tax plantation kali-stan can allow their cattle(everyone here who is NOT one of the elites) that much.

You all know what is coming one day soon, right? Daily government notifications as to whether you can drive or not. Which day you can BBQ. Which day is your day to cut the grass or go shopping.

Everyone will swallow this “for the good of us all”

This all about control. Complete control. They know better than you, right?

Broadbent can stick it as far as I’m concerned.
