The Air We Breathe
We’ve decoded a few voicemails that give us a peek at what the air we breathe will be like in the future. Take a listen to this timestream of voicemails. People are staying inside for months at a time? Schools are going on lockdown? People are risking their lives to go outside without a mask on? I’ve gotta say, it’s pretty darn scary. Breathing is kinda up there on the list of things important to humans.
Living near Lake Michigan, I know a little something about not-so-good air quality. Unfortunately, some of the industries that keep the local economy going aren’t exactly in the business of producing clean air. It’s a hard thing to balance. For me, it means I need to take my inhaler a little more often than I probably would if I lived somewhere else. I also need to stay indoors when there’s an air quality warning. These voicemails are from what could conceivably be a time that I am still alive. What will this mean for me or other people with asthma or more serious conditions?
