San Diego Fares Poorly in Lung Association's Annual Ranking of Ozone Pollution

19 April 2018

The report looked at pollution levels between 2014 and 2016 and it said ozone pollution was worse in 2017 than it was the year before.

More than 50 MI counties did not collect air quality data.

"New York and CT both filed comments with the EPA asking them to take action against a power plant in Pennsylvania, whose air pollution in the ozone is traveling and settling over our region", said Seilback.

The report also took into account those exposed to the burning of solid fuels in their homes, typically used for cooking or heating their home, resulting in indoor air pollution. It also contracted with Allen Lefohn of A.S.L. & Associates to study certain ozone and particulate matter information.

Minnesota School Knife Attack by Boy, 8, Injures 3 Others
Three elementary school students were wounded Monday when they were attacked by second-grader with a knife, reports say. Staff and students at the school will be able to speak with mental health counselors if needed, according to KARE.

The report found that some SC cities had more days when short-term particle pollution has reached unhealthy levels in 2014-2016.

According to the report, "fine particle air pollution is the largest environmental risk factor worldwide, responsible for a substantially larger number of attributable deaths than other more well-known behavioral risk factors such as alcohol use, physical inactivity, or high sodium intake".

The Los Angeles-Long Beach area was No. 1 on the list of the 24 metro areas most polluted by ozone, No. 4 on the list of the 24 metro areas most polluted by year-round particle pollution, and No. 7 on the list of the 24 metro areas most polluted by short-term particle pollution.

Compared to the 2017 report, some SC cities, like Columbia, experienced more unhealthy days of high ozone in this year's report.

Western powers say chemical substances, most likely chlorine and sarin, were used in the attack and killed at least 40 civilians. On Friday evening, President Donald Trump ordered a military attack against Syrian President Bashar Assad .

Ozone, also known as smog, is the most prevalent air pollutant. No unhealthy ozone days were recorded in Montana from 2014 through 2016. Yet Siler said many Utahns fail to take steps to reduce their emissions - such as turning off the auto while waiting to pick up their kids. To rank as one of the nation's cleanest, each city must experience no high ozone or high particle pollution days and must rank among the 25 cities with the lowest year-round particle pollution levels.

The nation's cleanest cities are Bellingham, Wash.; Burlington, Vt.; Casper, Wyo.; Honolulu; Melbourne, Fla.; and Wilmington, N.C.

The U.S. cities with the cleanest air include Bellingham, Wash.; Burlington-South Burlington, Vt.; Casper, Wyo.; Honolulu; Palm Bay-Melbourne-Titusville, Fla., and Wilmington, N.C.

The rate, however, has marginally increased in six years between 2010 and 2016 - the year for which the latest data is available. "We saw a lot of evidence in 2016 of the impact that climate change and global warming is going to have on us". "The nation must work to reduce emissions that worsen climate".
