Polluted air may pollute our morality,
Association for Psychological Science, February 7, 2018.

Creating the Crappy "Box" we Live Within:

"Exposure to air pollution, even imagining exposure to air pollution, may lead to unethical behavior...is linked with unethical behavior such as crime and cheating. "

"Previous studies have indicated that exposure to air pollution elevates individuals’ feelings of anxiety. Anxiety is known to correlate with a range of unethical behaviors. Lu and colleagues hypothesized that pollution may ultimately increase criminal activity and unethical behavior by increasing anxiety."

"The researchers found that cities with higher levels of air pollution also tended to have higher levels of crime. This association held even after the researchers accounted for other potential factors, including total population, number of law enforcement employees, median age, gender distribution, race distribution, poverty rate, unemployment rate, unobserved heterogeneity among cities (e.g., city area, legal system), and unobserved time-varying effects (e.g., macroeconomic conditions)."


Imaginary Research?

I'm not really sure I trust their method, of having subjects "imagine" how they'd feel, as being terribly reliable, while I do not disagree with the underlying principal of their research, which is that the nature of our environment, or the lack of nature in our environment, affects perception, attitude, and behavior.

 Apparently we are not just subject to the wive's tale that, "You are what you eat," but we are also products of what we breathe, as well as being affected by the quality of the nature of our surrounding environment, that we perceive.

I believe we control, and are responsible for, many of our own society's broad environmental and individual emotional "outcomes," by ourselves creating the environment that we ourselves live in, that both creates and reinforces our own desperation.

Not Cool.

I am currently working towards publishing the completed guide between Tahoe & Yosemite as an e-book, while converting this "blog" to a fine magazine format. You will like the results! Help Tahoe to Whitney reach its potential!
