Protect Your Family from Smog in California
California’s smog is the worst in America. It impacts your health every day — it’s harming your community as we speak. The air, dirty and polluted, can leave residents literally gasping for breath, with dangerous contamination levels causing damage to your lungs, eyes and skin. Kids, who should be able to play sports outside, are now forced indoors on high-pollution days. And smog can lead to asthma and chronic lung issues. In fact, the number of Californians struggling with respiratory disorders continues to increase — by upwards of 75 percent since 1980 — which puts adults and children alike at risk. Our elected officials have worked hard and made strides in recent years to get us up to par: California has been aggressive about adopting cleaner, alternative energy sources. The state has also cut greenhouse emissions. And they’ve set aggressive pollution reduction standards. But we still have a long way to go. As we continue to face the effects of pollution, we need to be aware of what we're up against so we can keep our families healthy.
