Annual study finds that Phoenix's air quality is deteriorating

Report Air in Charleston Co. growing more unhealthy

An increasing number - more than 20.5 million people - lived in counties with year-round particle pollution problems. The report found that ozone and particle pollution reached record highs in multiple cities during the observed three-year stretch.

"This increase in unhealthy air is eye-opening, and points to the reality that the nation must do more to protect the public from serious, even life-threatening harm", American Lung Association President Harold Wimmer said in a statement.

The 2019 edition of the organization's annual "State of the Air" report, released today, April 24, ranked Denver as the twelfth-worst out of 228 metropolitan areas for ozone pollution, which poses a wide variety of respiratory, cardiovascular and developmental health risks.

No Oregon city shows up on the American Lung Association's Top 25 list of the most polluted cities "by ozone", but that doesn't mean the state received only good scores.

Climate change is likely to make ozone pollution worse in the future, by making the hot temperatures necessary to create smog more common. California dominated the list of most-polluted cities.

The Lehigh Valley's air quality is (ahem) not great, according to a national report by the American Lung Association.

Multnomah County scored a C for particle pollution. Ozone attacks the lungs - some people describe ozone pollution as "sunburn for the lungs". Beyond the Valley's problematic topography - a bowl surrounded by mountain ranges that traps pollution in - he highlighted transportation-related pollution sources, including from major highways and railways.

Metro Phoenix's air quality greatly deteriorated over the past year, according to a new study. "We have much cleaner vehicles, power plants are doing better, but a lot of this is challenged by the current administration's rollbacks and with climate change, because we have such extreme weather patterns of drought and wildfire and that can add to particle pollution", Nolen said. They are Bangor, Maine; Burlington-South Burlington, Vermont; Honolulu, Hawaii; Lincoln-Beatrice, Nebraska; Palm Bay-Melbourne-Titusville, Florida; and Wilmington, North Carolina.
