What would your reaction be if we returned to the days when smoking was permitted in restaurants and public places? Probably to choose not to frequent those places to avoid the lifespan-shortening effects of breathing secondhand smoke.
That scenario won't happen; we're smarter than that now and have laws restricting such threats to our health.
But it is no surprise to anyone that our air quality during inevitable inversions poses what doctors say is a health emergency that is shortening our lives. Unless you leave the region, it is inescapable. Unlike smoking, breathing is not a choice.
