  1. The Crown Jakarta Management Review - Google+ - Nation’s Air In general, 119 counties have levels of ozone that affect the health of citizens with “aggravated asthma, difficulty breathing, cardiovascular harm and lower birth weight”. Particulate levels in 58 counties are such that they “increase risks of heart attacks, strokes and emergency room visits for asthma and cardiovascular disease”. – Crown community

  2. The State of the Nation’s Air, and Your Lungs “State of the Air” utilizes data gathered by the E.P.A. from 2009 to 2011. Its main objective is to promote continued enforcement of the Clean Air Act. Since 1970 when the Act was first amended, population and energy consumption has increased by about 50% while gross domestic product rose 212%, the report shows. Since then, emissions of the six most common pollutants have decreased by 68%. China, on the other hand, can only dream of achieving such a growth-to-pollution ratio. Cities, such as Salt Lake City and Fairbanks, Alaska, experience more frequent short-term spikes in pollution. Out of 25 cities that had the worst short-term problems, 14 recorded more poor days than in previous reports of the “State of the Air”. According to the report, some cities experienced higher pollution arising from increased burning of wood and other fuels for heating during winter, especially with the use of highly-polluting indoor wood-stoves or outdoor wood-boilers.
