I must be feeling lazy - such a good target - like shooting fish in a barrel. This one from USA Today:
California again leads list with 6 of the top 10 most polluted U.S. cities
California's smoggy reputation appears to be deserved: Six of the USA's 10 cities with the worst air pollution are in the Golden State, according to a new report.
Bakersfield, Calif., again holds the dubious distinction of having the USA's most days of highly polluted air, based on data from 2013-2015, the American Lung Association’s annual “State of the Air” report released Wednesday found.
In addition to the worst spikes of short-term pollution — led by Bakersfield — the report also lists the cities with the worst overall year-round pollution — led by Visala/Hanford, Calif.— and the worst ozone pollution, led by the Los Angeles/Long Beach area.
Tell me again how environmentally conscious you are? Committed to the environment. Big difference between saying something and doing it.
