@jorge You're missing one option:

"It's a surveillance capitalist hellscape which has repeatedly been caught stealing users data so I avoid it to the best of my ability."

Question to academics,
How would you describe your use of ?

Standards for cleaner car emissions will require traceable methods for . The MetroPEMS will develop new standards and calibration procedures for NOx, particle number and exhaust flow. Details are available in the Publishable Summary, now available for download.

Really interesting experiment to study the viability of SARS-CoV-2 on aerosolized particles. Preliminary results show that the viability is reduced significantly after 10 min and that the virus can survive longer in cold environments.

Today is the first ever 🌍 and I would like to take the opportunity to share our project's website. The MetroPEMS project will help to improve urban air quality by bringing metrology to measurements 🚗

How SUVs conquered the world and threaten to kill the climate

Last year, the International Energy Agency (#IEA) made a finding that stunned even its own researchers. #SUV's were the second-largest cause of the global rise in #carbon #emissions over the past decade, eclipsing shipping, aviation, heavy industry and even trucks, usually the only vehicles to loom larger than them on the road.

This year's Max Planck Symposium has a very interesting program focused on smart working. It will be held online. Check it out:

"4.2 million people die every year as a result of exposure to outdoor . If we consider the rankings of risk factors for death, air pollution is number 4 on the list".

Do you redefine acronyms in the introduction of an article after being already defined in the abstract?

🚗 MetroPEMS is starting in September 2020. Our EU-funded project will focus on improving the traceability of , particle number and exhaust flow for portable emission measurement systems ()

Dear fellows,
There is a new instance dedicated to scientists :labcoat:
In case you are interested:

"We do know social distancing reduces the risk of transmitting the virus by 90%, and wearing masks decreases the risk by 65%."

COVID-19 transmission patterns only seem explainable by aerosols
