Smog Watch 2008: Dangerous Air Quality in 37 States

0

Smog In The CityA big issue arising this summer is the smog that covers our cities on really hot days, and after a new standard was set by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency this year, you can expect to hear about a lot more ‘smog days’. We all know that emissions aren’t helping the air quality, but Clean Air Watch are pointing their fingers at coal burning electric power plants as a major cause that is often ignored. 37 of the States, including California, Vermont, Maine and Florida, all have smog issues, and it’s enough to push Clean Air Watch to address the issue with the Bush administration – asking that new standards are set for dirty engines that are being imported from China. Try and do your part to cut the level of smog in your city this summer by reducing your emissions and making sure your engines (even as small as a lawnmower) are up to code.
