15 Oct. 2020 – Rolls-Royce Introduces Cleanest Motor Car Micro Environment. When developing the latest generation of luxury products, Rolls-Royce engineers sought to elevate air quality within its existing motor cars to unprecedented levels of purity. By using the latest sensor and Nanofleece filtration technology, the marque claims the cleanest microenvironment available in any motor car.
“The importance of protecting clients from harmful carbon and pollen particles, as well as viruses and bacterial contaminants, has been of the utmost importance to the marque…since 2015, all Rolls-Royce motor cars have benefited from state-of-the-art air filtration equipment,” Rolls claimed.
For the new Ghost, which debuts in autumn 2020, this technology has been developed to incorporate hardware and software improvements, collectively dubbed the MicroEnvironment Purification System. Impurity Detection Sensors have been introduced to detect ambient pollution levels, automatically switching fresh air intakes to Recirculation Mode if unacceptable levels of airborne contaminants are present. This channels all cabin air through a Nanofleece filter, which can remove nearly all ultra-fine particles, viruses and bacteria from the Rolls-Royce’s interior in less than two minutes.

15 Oct 2020 – Federal revenues are projected to fall from 16.3% of GDP in 2019 (already down because of the Republican tax cuts for the rich) to 15.5% in 2021, primarily because of the economic disruption caused by the pandemic and the federal government’s lack of a vigorous public health response by the Trump Administration. Revenues rise after 2021, reaching almost 18% in 2030, because of the expiration of temporary provisions enacted in response to the pandemic and scheduled increases in taxes. Big, big unknowns that puts this CBO forecast at risk is the ongoing reappearance of the Covid virus and the virtually certain negative effect it will have on the economy and tax collections. Other factors such as a new round of COVID relief measures to prevent further economic destruction to the non-wealthy citizens and bailouts of companies are also quantifiable but seem likely.
