Remember Vancouvers smog before Air Care came in? Its been 20 years so most wont remember the air quality index on the radio every morning. Yeah it was a real thing. They are fazing it out Air Care in 2014. Since new cars have much better emissions controls we can assume the smoggy old days wont return.

In Athens we came out of the train station in the evening and I thought there was a building on fire close by it was so bad. Smoke everywhere all the time. Up on the Acropolis you can look down on the city and see the brown/grey haze covering everything. Thats a city with no pollution control for you.

^ Depends I guess, When I was in Athens Summer of 1990 there was no smog when I was there it was really nice but there wasn't global warming and climate change the weather was always good back then. The good ole days before the internet and iphones.
