Propeller Alert!

Our tests show very little difference in concentrations of ... particulates between indoors and outdoors.

I wonder how much these propeller head rocket scientists get from the taxpayer teat telling us that the air inside our houses is the same as the outside?

"Dr Epton said the study contradicted the myth that people could escape pollution by going indoors and shutting the door."

A myth that is particularly popular with people who heat their homes by burning wood or coal.

What was your motoivation for misrepresenting the findings of the study. Where did they say the air inside is the same as the air outside? They didn't did they. Never play smartypants with people who really are smarter than you. No I don't mean I'm smarter than you. I just happen to live in Christchurch and have heard this "infiltration filtration" myth taken for granted by many many people. If I'm smarter than you on this one issue it's through being better informed not by having a better brain than you.
