This past weekend, most of North Carolina was covered in fog. Greensboro was eerily foggy. The above photo shows a street scene on Guilford College Road where it crosses Hilltop Road and becomes Piedmont Parkway. We share this photo in relief that, in Greensboro, we are talking about fog and not smog and air pollution like they are in China this week.* China's air is keeping people inside and, in Bejing alone thousands of people a day are being treated for respiratory problems.
If you want to keep up with Greensboro's air quality, our city givernment maintains a page here. If we consider what keeps a community healthy, air quality is a key component. For this NEW round of ABC Wednesday, we're going with another theme, "Keeping Greensboro Green." Today we are featuring A for air quality. Let's do everything we can to keep Greensboro green and to keep our air clean!
