While people are outside, they breathe catalytic treated air in their protective environmental suits. It is too expensive to provide fresh air for such excursions. Fresh air is reserved exclusively for enclosed cities.

They characteristically have blue-ish colored skin and breath in gasps as their lungs adjust from the artificial air to real, fresh air as nature intended. After an hour or so they appear normal again and breathe as the "ancients" did just forty or fifty years previous.

Inside the cities, there is plenty of fresh air and other resources, now that the life-expectancy is down to about 40 years of age.
