Kentucky environmental lawyer Sanders says American Lung Association released its 10th annual report on air quality for America!

 

ALA report did not pull any punches with regard to air quality in the Queen City.

The American Lung Association’s tenth annual State of the Air Report shows what’s in our air—by location— and how the air we breathe continues to threaten the lives and health of millions of Americans. The report released finds that six out of ten Americans–186.1 million people — live in areas where air pollution levels endanger lives.   

 

 

 

The State of the Air report, found at www.stateoftheair.org, includes a national air quality “report card” that assigns A to F grades to communities across the country.  Northern Kentucky did not do well in the report.  For example, Campbell County, Kentucky — where our law office is located — received an overall grade of “F” for air quality in the report. 

 

The report also ranks cities and counties most affected by the three most widespread types of pollution (ozone—or smog, annual particle pollution, and 24-hour particle pollution levels) and details trends for 900 counties over the past decade.
