In another thread, the topic of air quality was raised.

Here is a link which I think all Austinites and anyone considering moving here would like to see. At the top of the webpage you can select a month and it will show the cities and areas within those cities - any air quality which is in color is of concern (the colors are explained at the bottom of the page).

Daily Maximum Eight-Hour Ozone Averages for August 2009 - Texas Commission on Environmental Quality - www.tceq.state.tx.us

Austin does pretty well in comparison to other cities in Texas.

I noted there has been an improvement in Houston air quality since I moved (could that be due to the reduction of output from the chemical plants or not producing at the moment?). One summer there was 16 days when it was dangerous to be outdoors and breathe the air.

Some suburban areas weren't as clean air as you would expect! Sugarland for instance in Houston or Austin NorthWest.

Maybe he's been inhaling bad air and halucinating from it? AustinSpartan may be suffering from toxic radon poisoning from staying indoors and not aerating his home?
