Well this just beats all.

The American Lung Association says California has 8 of the 10 most polluted cities !!

Ozone Irony !! 😞

California has eight of 10 most polluted U.S. cities

Forget the Golden State. California should be called the Smoggy State.

Eight of the USA's 10 most-polluted cities, in terms of ozone pollution, are in California, according to the American Lung Association's annual "State of the Air" report, released Wednesday.

The Los Angeles/Long Beach area took the dubious distinction of being the nation's most ozone-polluted city as it has for nearly the entire 19-year history of the report.

California has some very large populated areas. It would seem obvious that this would be the case.

Not sure what your point is.

Do you think there would be less pollution with fewer regulations?

None of those cases. If you look at the cars Americans drive compare to what China drive you'll notice a difference. The amount of trucks and outdated engine is the obvious cause. Don't forget about those dam traffic jams.

Other cities have less pollution with fewer regulations, so it doesn't matter what I think or you think, facts are facts.

LA is number 1....why doesn't this surprise me..? The problem is LA has been plagued with public transportation problems for as long as I remember.

In the massive sprawl of LA you have to have a car. A massive population accompanies the sprawl and a lot of them have cars.

They have fewer air pollution regulations? Interesting. Are you sure about that?

Maybe you're right.

Isn't a chunk of the pollution coming from china?


Scientists found Asian air pollution contributed as much as 65 percent of an increase in Western ozone in recent years

They concluded that the spike in man-made emissions in Asia "is the major driver" of the rise in ozone levels in the western U.S. for both spring and summer in recent decades

Reading is hard.



Since California is known for its strict environmental regulations, why are so many cities from the state typically on this list? It's because the state would be far worse off without its strict laws on tailpipe pollution and eliminating coal-fired power plants. California has done more than any other state to counteract air pollution, the Lung Association said.




Smog forms on warm, sunny days and is made worse from chemicals that exit vehicle tailpipes and from power plant and industrial smokestacks. Warmer temperatures make ozone more likely to form.


So if you took away the regulations in place now the pollution would be much worse and do think that would be a good thing because your kind and Trump hate gov't regulations?

Oh, looks like your POTUS is already heading the charge to continue the pollution!

President Trump directs EPA to ease air quality rules he says suffocates industry

So are you guys Pro-Pollution as you laugh at California's pollution problem and shun gov't regulations on the industry and car manufacturing bizness?

States with a smaller population than Los Angeles County

California is the most populated state in the United States... Having said that, it wouldn't take a genius to work out why it has the highest amount of pollution!

The trends can be found here. It seems that all that nasty regulation works.

I think there would be a lower density of people with less freebies and socialist programs.

Ah, so California's problem is pollution is because they have too many Californians?

No Californians in Alabama, so I guess we don't need those regulations.

California pollution kills a lot of people too young, like Stephen Jobs. Heavy toxins in bloodstream. Especially south 1/2.
