Louis receives an ‘F’ rating in air pollution

Indianapolis gets ‘F’ for air quality American Lung Association says

This year's report ranks Salt Lake City the 14th worst American city for ozone pollution.

They say four in 10 Americans live in counties that have air with unhealthy levels of "particle pollution" or ozone.

The report lists "Fresno-Madera-Hanford" as the most polluted for year-round particle pollution. "In addition to challenges here in Denver, the 20th-anniversary "State of the Air" report highlights that more than 4 in 10 Americans are living with unhealthy air, and we're heading in the wrong direction when it comes to protecting public health".

The Eugene-Springfield area is now the 38th most polluted area in the US for annual particle pollution, according to the American Lung Association's "State of the Air" 2019 report.

Twitter co-founder subtweets Jack Dorsey into dust following Trump meeting
Meanwhile, the Washington Post reported that Trump and Dorsey's meeting wasn't quite as cordial as their public exchange suggests. The President said it was "hard for people to sign on" and accused the company of "constantly taking people off list".

Another example is that, over the three-year period from 2015 through 2017 that the Lung Association counted in the latest report, Salt Lake County received an "F" grade for an annual average of 21 days of high ozone.

"Massachusetts residents should be aware that we're breathing unhealthy air, driven by emissions from power plants and extreme heat as a result of climate change, placing our health and lives at risk", Elizabeth Hamlin-Berninger, American Lung Association director of advocacy in MA, said in a statement. Dukes, Plymouth, Suffolk, and Worcester counties all received C's and D's, lower grades than previous year. While people like to blame agriculture for the problem, he said, it's "more of a climate change problem". This year's report shows the spike in high ozone days and in unhealthy particle pollution episodes driven by wildfires. California dominated the list of most-polluted cities. Wednesday's report, the organization's 20th, looks at data on particle pollution and ozone pollution from 2015 to 2017.

"Ozone especially harms children, older adults and those with asthma and other lung diseases", said Strother. "Specifically in the Pacific Northwest with the increase of wildfires and wildfire smoke exposure that we're having", said Nyssen.

The findings add "to the evidence that a changing climate is making it harder to protect human health", according to the report.
