I Can See It in the Air Tonight, Oh Lord.

“A haze advisory by the Guam Environmental Protection Agency (GEPA) is in effect for the island. GEPA officials say that the cause is dust from Asia.”
I knew something was up because since Tuesday I’ve had to use my inhaler a lot. Dude. I can spend an evening in a smoky bar and not have trouble breathing. But on a hazy day I walk from the parking lot to the office and I’m wheezing. I am not digging this dust deal.
This is my “Dust sucks – Thanks a lot China!” face.

Haze Advisory In Effect
Hazy shade of winter – dust originated from China
Sensitive sinus sufferers should stay seated
Haze advisory extended through Saturday
I miss our clear blue skies.
Tranquility

    The story you linked to is calling it the same thing!
    “The dust, which originates in the Gobi Desert in China”

    Patti, this is not new. It happened as recent as October of last year, and it was said to have been caused by land clearing fires in Indonesia.

    all i’m saying is that the stories out of asia call it dust/polluton. the stuff around guam doesn’t look like dust. the Gobi Desert is generally yellow.
