@peterlibrarian No idea how far PM2.5 and PM10 spreads, could be rather local. I used to live in the north of Amstelveen just below the flightroute of Schiphol's only east-west runway, could never decide spontaniouly to sit on a chair on my balcony whithout cleaning it first from black dust.

Satellite images mostly show a lot of pollution above NL while ground measurements are less alarming.
@peterlibrarian These measurements seem to support your personal feeling indeed. Think the measurements are done at the "worst spots", taking in account some measurement locations in NL. For the country as a whole it's a different story, desly polulated southern part of NL and northern Belgium very red if you do an image search on "air pollution europe".

From bad to worse, #Facebook has PR firm spread lies that Facebook-critics are payed for by George Soros, using the classical antisemitic myth.
@peterlibrarian hmm, I think the air pollution in Amsterdam (and other places in NL) might actually be worse then in Granada. Finland is no match to other European country, probably only the north of Sweden and Norway will have cleaner air.
Still remember the surprise long ago about #Brexit chaos and the comments that almost certainly the British government would come up soon with some kind of amazing solution to "deliver Brexit"...
A little preview of my interview on birdsite of tonight’s documentary on Dutch TV:
Bizar verhaal, stad "ontdekt" die niet eens 200 jaar geleden werd verwoest en vanaf 1836 door Europese kolonisten uit geschiedschrijving is gehouden.

Currently it's the commercial internet-platforms, but the mechanism is still the same as with radio in the Rwanda genocide, TV in the Balkan war and news-papers in nazi-Germany.
Extremists generating clicks and adverstisement and people/corporations making a lot of money with it. Pointing hate against minorities is income optimization, hate messages against a majority will create less clicks.

@tibike my colleague overheard a remark about a diskette on a table: "oh look, how cool! somebody made a 3D model of a save icon!" 🙄 kids these days...
