Air Quality in NJ and the Indoor Golf Solution

September 26, 2023
July 18, 2023

The current wildfire situation across North America has not just devastated large tracts of land but has also raised a significant environmental concern: the air quality and particularly in the Garden State (New Jersey). Scientists predict the poor air quality conditions to last until fall, further emphasizing the need for indoor recreational alternatives like GolfCave, especially for sensitive individuals.

Effects of Wildfires on Air Quality in NJ

Wildfires release large quantities of particulate matter and gases such as carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and volatile organic compounds into the air. These pollutants form a dangerous cocktail, leading to hazardous air quality that can travel across states, affecting regions far from the source. For New Jersey, this wildfire smoke has led to a significant drop in air quality.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), these conditions can lead to health problems such as difficulty breathing, chest pain, and worsened heart and lung diseases. People who are sensitive, such as older adults, children, pregnant women, and those with pre-existing health conditions, are more vulnerable to these adverse effects.

As we face the reality of this environmental calamity, it's important to find ways to adapt to the changing situation without losing the zest for life.
