    Hey!! We have a better idea, which is market ready world wide. Now there is a new emulsion fuel, it uses 30% water and 70% fuel, without causing corrosion or rust, even bunker fuel. It knocks the pollution up to 90% and there is no power loss and no modification of equipment needed. Yes, it also saves money. I know it sounds too good to be true. The greatest part is that it is a no extra cost, no risk to use the new fuel for a company. Ahh! Technology is changing the picture of things..

    Wonderful video on air quality, I learned a lot. I did a 5 minute video on walkable neighborhood design, that help to reduce air pollution. check it out at otis31755 and let me know what you think.

    I can’t believe some of the crap I’m reading from you idiots. “why doesn’t she just move??” Are you kidding? That’s just your easy way out. Instead of dealing with the smog (by buying greener automobiles, carpooling, biking, public transportation, recycling, being smart about electricity use, etc) IT”S NOT FUCKING ROCKET SCIENCE. As humans, we’re lazy and if there is an easier, convenient lifestyle, we’ll take it, right? I’m guilty of it. But at least I have the balls to admit it, assholes.

    wow, and at 19:15, we have the mother dancing as she is dishing up dinner to her kids.
    I am SURE that she is totally focused on her kids and what they eat.
    But, she is super hot, and, I would totally nail her.
    So, thanks to this super high class educational video, I FINALLY found a HOT woman near Pasadena I am ALL about!

    oh yeah, meant to say, I was BORN with asthma in Atlanta, and, to DATE, Atlanta is the ALLERGY capital of the world. Worse than any other area EVER.
    I have to deal with it. I don’t sit on my ass and say, hey, Atlanta, DO something about this tree/[plant/grass problem we are having causing ME to suffer.
    Or, NOW, saying, hey, Atlanta, get these allergies and pollution out of my home area.
    This video has NO credibility and has NO REAL focus groups.
    You don’t like what you breathe? MOVE!!

    Nobody likes or welcomes smog, however, LA is one of those where there is a whole LOT you can do, with little, or NO result.
    Blow up the mountains, shift or REDIRECT the pacific would help.
    Of course, that is as dumb as the people that complain on this lame video.
    You grew up in Riverside? Sorry, that must have sucked.
    YOU….CHOSE to live there, deal with it.
    All of those industries that put out pollution were already there, and now you bitch because you have a ton of kids.

    Don’t get me wrong. Clean air is important but what good is clean air without a strong economy, jobs, and wealth! Don’t hurt our industries or punish our corporations for trying to provide an honest living to Americans who want to work to put food on the table and buy that dream house or car they always wanted. Californians in polluted areas should live and work indoors in air filtered environments. Our cars should be equipped with the proper air filtration that is needed as well.

    Oh GOOOOOOOOD these people have no imagination. There is little one can do about the outside air but families have full control on what goes on inside their homes. If they really wanted to, they could build houses that are sealed off from the outside air with HEPA air filtration which only allows filtered air to enter the home so they don’t have to be exposed to the air pollution. They could make filters that work like “catalysts” to remove the “ozone” from the air inside their homes.
