I had to catch my breath at the Toronto Star's inside page column today, "Sun cooks up year's first smog alert".
"All this beautiful sun has come with a price," writes reporter San Grewal. "High ozone readings yesterday prompted the province's first smog advisory of the year, covering most of southern Ontario."
Grewal goes on to provide a helpful quote from John Steele, a spokesperson with the provincial Ministry of the Environment: "A lot of sun creates the photochemical reaction that results in high ground-level ozone."
There was me thinking it had something to do with - oh, never mind. It's nice to know our local papers are getting to the heart of the issue when it comes to explaining the real causes for Southern Ontario's smog days.
I heard on the radio, as I was driving to work (Ha! Busted! But have you ever tried commuting to Mississauga?) that:
Oh well. Here's hoping we get some rain soon, otherwise we'll all have to get used to catching our breath.
