Four of top 10 worst places for Air Quality are in Valley, distinction that only continue to solidify as years go on. And while California and Central Valley are often pushed into air pollution spotlight, air quality is national concern. Air quality in United States has been worsening over last three years-and it is killing people. While air quality been improving since 2009, trend reversed in 2016. Nearly 10 000 premature deaths have been attributed to this increase alone, according to National Bureau of Economic Research. As of 2019, more than 141 million Americans live in places with unhealthy levels of air pollution, according to American Lung Associations 2019 State of Air report. This is significantly more 134 million people reported in 2018. California has some of most stringent environmental laws in country, but topography and population growth complicate efforts to combat air pollution, according to Association. More people means more cars, and many of those people reside in basins valleys where pollution naturally settle. Increase In Wildfires Also Plays Role, Especially In Particle Pollution. 24 / 7 Tempo reviewed 30 metropolitan areas with highest levels of air pollution using data from Environmental Protection Agencys Air Quality Index. It takes into account amount of carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, sulfur dioxide in air, as well as estimated concentration of PM2. 5 and PM10, which for particulate matter smaller than 2. 5 and micrometers in diameter. 24-hour concentration of PM2. 5, most harmful type of air pollution, considered unhealthy when it rises above 35. 4 g / m3. These fine particles are produced by burning fuel-car engines, factories, domestic heating-or by chemical reactions that take place in atmosphere. There are three major reasons that air pollution is getting worse in United States, according to experts: booming economic activity, increases in wildfires and more relaxed enforcement of clean air regulations. Another harmful type of pollution ground-level ozone. It form when pollutants produced by cars, power plants, industrial boilers, other sources react with sunlight. Hotter days, higher levels ozone pollution. Whether from fine particles or air pollution can have serious health consequences. They range from effects such as asthma attacks from short-term exposure to pollutants to heart and Lung cancer from long-term exposure. This is far from first time Tulare County has been recognized for its polluted air. In its 2019 report, American Lung Association State that Visalia was second smoggiest city in country, behind only Los Angeles. That same report found Visalia has fourth-worst levels of year-round particle pollution in 2015-17. Still, Porterville-Visalia area has hovered in top five polluted areas for more than decade. In Association's 2009 report, Porterville-Visalia was third in pollution and fourth in year-round particle pollution. Bad Air Quality isnt concern just in United States.
