How about using material science to solve the problem of smoke?

About 20 years ago, I used to live in the Northeast of China, for several years. It was a small mountain town with many birches and lots of magpies flying and singing around.

大概二十年前,我在中国东北的某个地方生活了一些年。那是一个小山城,漫山遍野都是白桦树林,还有围绕期间纷飞鸣叫的喜鹊。

People there were nice and friendly. They were always willing to offer helping hands to strangers. Yet nearly all of them loved to smoke a lot.

那里的人民淳朴友好。他们都是心肠善良的好人,很乐于助人。不过他们中间大部分人都吸烟。

Then, as a little child, I began to cough badly. The local doctor told my parents that it was pharyngitis caused by tobacco smoke, without method. I can still remember that he was saying that with a burning cigarette in his mouth.

后来,我从很小的时候,就开始咳嗽得特别厉害。当地大夫跟我父母说,这是咽炎,被烟雾熏的,没什么办法治疗。我还记着他说话的同时最里面还叼着一根点着的烟。

I didn't understand the meaning of his words exactly,"chronic lifelong disease", and I thought everything would be OK few days later. The sad fact is that it keeps coming in the following years and gets even worse after I arriving in Beijing.

那时候我还不太理解他说的各种术语,“慢性终身疾病”,所以我就想着估计过几天就好了。悲剧的是这病经常发作,而且自从我来了北京,就更严重了。

Now, I have already figured out that with the help of PM2.5 in polluted air outside and second-hand smoke indoor, respiratory disease has become a most common, chronic lifelong disease, which seriously damages people's health. Besides, there is also serious cardiovascular including coronary heart disease caused by them.

现在,我已经弄清了,室内二手烟和室外的PM2.5双剑合璧,已经让呼吸系统疾病成了最普遍的终身慢性疾病。另外这些还引起了很多严重的心血管疾病比如冠心病等等。

Yes, I know that there is almost nothing we can change as normal common citizens to the air pollution but to pray for mighty wind, maybe. But I am pretty sure that we can control the smoke made by every individual smoker, at least.

是啊,我也清楚,对于空气污染,普通市民除了祈祷“大风起兮云飞扬”,恐怕也做不了什么了。但我很确定的是,最起码我们能控制每一个吸烟者释放的烟雾。

It is ridiculous that, after the order of banning smoking issued by the Beijing government, many smokers began to complain about their rights violated. How do they feel about other people's right to life and health when they poison them by smoking around? Is your right to suck some bad gas larger than our lives?

很有趣的是,当北京政府颁布了禁烟法令之后,很多吸烟的人开始抱怨自身权益被侵犯了。当他们在其他人身边吸烟来毒害别人的时候,怎么不想想其他人的生命和健康权?你们吸气体的权利大过我们生存的权利么?

In fact, I don't hate smoking people, because I don't care whether they are going to kill themselves gradually. But I care about the smoke they burn out and throw to other people, other livings, and the nature.

事实上,我并不痛恨吸烟的人,因为我不在乎他们是不是要慢性自杀。但我在意的是他们不完全吸进去而是排放很多烟出来,用这些烟来毒害周围的人、生物,甚至整个自然界。

In my opinion, smokers should take the responsibility to clean up your smoke, preventing others from which. How about putting some special bags around their heads to make sure they can both breath and suck all smoke in their lungs? Using some material making those special breazing bags is a good way of protecting the entire universe.

在我看来,吸烟者最起码应该负责清理干净你们的烟雾,不要让其他人接触到。或者可以考虑在吸烟者的脑袋周围装上一种特制的塑料袋,保证他们能够呼吸,并且吸干净所有烟气到他们自己的肺部,这样好不好?用某种特质材料来制作这种特殊呼吸袋将会成为保护整个宇宙的好思路。
