Better Air Quality 2008

The intent of this event was to show the early findings and methods for monitoring any benefits, whether socio-economic, health, or environmental, of mitigating emissions from the combustion of coal and other fuels for home heating and cooking practices in places such as Asia.

Here we have many people and presentations of their work. At this time John Mitchell of the PCIA assigned a single task, to chat with the others present at the main event, working on ambient air pollution related topics and send the message of indoor air pollution and its effects on environment, health and so forth,

Why? To make stakeholders know that indoor air quality presents as big a problem as any other air quality issues. All of us who working on IAQ topics were enjoyed this venture since health concerns were dealt with in great detail and we expressed an urgent desire to develop necessary IAQ guidelines.

Barry's Response - Good Luck to you. I visited Hong Kong in October 2009 and have become much more aware of the current air quality issues on that continent. Thanks for your input, Thirumalaiselvan.

By the way PCIA stands for the Partnership for Clean Indoor Air, a conglomerate of organizations who work together to reduce the effects of heating and cooking on the air building inhabitants breathe. They help people find safer ways to use heat indoors, help people find better machines for heating and cooking, help companies distribute safer fuels, monitor for feedback to make sure the program is working.

Making the world a better place for all humans...that's a good idea.
