Cause and Effect

WISGOP had their state convention here in Milwaukee over the weekend. That meant that a lot of Republican politicians, activists and bloggers were in one building, spewing their vitriol out into the air.

The convention ended Sunday, but they left behind a memento of their time here:

A HOT, STAGNANT, INCREASINGLY HUMID AIR MASS WILL STRENGTHEN IN THE LAKE MICHIGAN REGION FOR MONDAY...THERE IS A POSSIBILITY THAT OZONE CONCENTRATIONS WILL REACH UNHEALTHY LEVELS FOR PERSONS IN SENSITIVE GROUPS IN THE WATCH AREA. DUE TO POSSIBLE ELEVATED LEVELS OF OZONE IN THE REGION...THE WISCONSIN DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES HAS ISSUED AN AIR QUALITY WATCH FOR MONDAY. THIS WATCH WILL EXPIRE AT MIDNIGHT MONDAY EVENING. THE AIR QUALITY WATCH AFFECTS PEOPLE LIVING IN THE WISCONSIN COUNTIES OF SHEBOYGAN...OZAUKEE... MILWAUKEE...RACINE...AND KENOSHA. TO HELP PREVENT POLLUTION FROM REACHING UNHEALTHY LEVELS... PEOPLE IN THE WATCH AREA ARE ENCOURAGED TO HELP DECREASE AIR POLLUTION BY REDUCING DRIVING WHEN POSSIBLE...AVOID BURNING LEAVES...GRASS...BRUSH ...OR WOOD...MINIMIZE VEHICLE ENGINE IDLING...POSTPONE USING SMALL GAS OR DIESEL POWERED OUTDOOR EQUIPMENT...AND PRACTICE ENERGY CONSERVATION.

So, the Weather Service says we should reduce driving or other activities that could worsen the air condition. Guess who decides to go on an around-the-state campaign jaunt (like the tax payer funded one wasn’t enough).
