the pollution level in california and the rest of the US are fine where they are at the people that cause all the problem are places like goddamn china there pollution so high that it affect the whole world. the world should be either suing them or pulling all their companies out of there and put harsh sanctions on them till they fix their problem. p.s i live next to a power plant and refinery n shit and im doing just fine with no health problem
I wonder how much of the premature mortality is due to rubber tire dust. There is really no such thing as a zero emission vehicle right now, they all have rubber tires.
11 People are uneducated republican voters.
Right to breath movie but they took the side of socal gas. We need to shut aliso canyon down!!!
Autonomos vehicles and electric trains like Maglav for cargo. Lighter, smaller and less good transported. Could give as large cut in pollution. But only for one generation with the same level of pollution since population gets bigger.
Battery powered cars today is not much greener than gasoline or propane. Since the battery need to be produced every 2 or so years for every car and those need to be recycled.
So what is an individual REALLY to do when most of the clean air initiatives are controlled by bureaucrats?
Dumbest documentary ever.
Asthma is horrible. I have a friend who had to have a lung taken out because of pollution. I used to have asthma attacks because of pollution and I used to have to go to hospital a lot because of it. It is awful.
I am a high school student and have lived in Los Angeles County my entire life. I fortunately have lived in the halfway decent portion of the county (West L.A.), where pollution is not as significant as it is in, say, downtown or South Central L.A., but just knowing that, a few miles away, polluting factories work 24/7 makes my heart sink. Just think of the impact it has not only on people but also on the wildlife, who do not have a voice…We must be their voice as a result. What a sad tragedy that 15 people die daily directly from this avoidable cause.
Cars are the biggest source of air pollution. My whole life I have rode my bike everywhere. 10 miles a day. Free energy! I have never owed a car. I am doing my part. I wish more people were.
This is the reason why I don't excersise and don't go to gym… XD
If humans continue to drive Gasoline Burning Automobiles, Global Warming and Climate Change, will destroy Human Life on Earth.

Interesting to note, not a word about the beach fire pits that the AQMD is trying to ban.
The next step is fighting pollution around the whole world!
