    I wonder….have any studies been carried out relative to the impacts of this fog on persons inhaling it – especially asthmatics – and on crops being grown in areas fogged?

    It seems to me this fog does little to kill mosquitoes and smells awful to boot! Having better garbage disposal habits and proper removal/ collection of it will surely assist in mosquito control. Equally, the enforcement of proper drainage construction and maintainance of the drainage system will go a long way in my opinion! Those pathetic shallow things at the side of our roads do nothing meaningful nor do those Jersey barriers place on the highways which from my observation have no drainage system under them. The little slots under them are inadequate as they are quickly blocked by wrappers, silt and random plants which grow alongside and hence BLOCK THE FLOW OF WATER CAUSING NEEDLESS POOLING…

    Surely the folks who get paid the “big bucks” should bd able to see these things and plan to prevent or mitigate their effects.

    National effort is required.
