State of the Air: 2009 (Copyright © American Lung Association)
Publication Year: 2009
Type: Online publication
American Lung Association State of the Air 2006 provides a county-level report card on the two most pervasive air pollutants: ozone (smog) and particle pollution (soot). In addition, this year’s report shows that both pollutants remain a persistent threat across large parts of the United States. However, there are clear signs that controls placed on coal-fired power plants between 1998 and 2004 have already improved air quality in much of the eastern United States. A special feature in the on-line version is an interactive map that allows you to type in your zip code and get local statistics for their area.
