Fantastic. Every citizen’s phone a tiny node in a world-wide network of pollution-sniffing. Excellent.

    To tell you the truth, I’m not sure if I want to know what I’m sniffing because we probably all need to be wearing gas masks as it is and I’m just not ready to do that yet. :-)

    That’s nice–it’s best use, of course, will be if said scientists managed to use this data to convince people in power to actually do something, though, right?
