Monthly Issues

May is Clean Air Month

Supported by the American Lung Association, Clean Air Month educates people about the impact clean air can have on their lives.

This observance also encourages people to take positive steps to help improve air quality.

What exactly is clean air?

Clean air, is air which has a natural balance of gases such as oxygen, nitrogen and carbon dioxide. Clean air does not contain pollutants or allergens.

 

Clean air does not harm the environment, nor is it a cause or trigger of health problems.

Consequences of poor quality air

Poor quality air can harm the environment and can affect us all.

Toxic air pollution is linked to serious conditions such as cancer and chronic bronchitis. Air pollution can exacerbate pre-existing conditions such as asthma.

Air pollution can also harm the environment. The burning of fossil fuels (often for transport or electricity generation) releases high levels of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxide into the atmosphere. These gases react with other gases and water to create rain which is acidic.

Acid rain raises the acid levels of water and disrupts the natural balance of life in lakes and rivers; acid rain can also damage plants and trees.
