a tale of two cities: don't breathe in Ottawa today

Here's what the PM2.5 looked like in San Diego, when I was there in 2003 and it was surrounded by fires - from a post I made November 3, 2003. Peaked at 150 on October 26, 2003.


and here's what Ottawa's air quality looks like - peaked at 122 so far today. Over 91 is "serious respiratory effects even during light physical activity; people with heart disease, the elderly and children at high risk; increased risk for general population" according to the Ontario Ministry of the Environment.
