You’ll notice we’ve changed our home page photo. It’s spring, the days are longer, and it’s time for a change. But the new photo also reminds us of what we could gain with more far-reaching, demanding air control policies. It was taken last week, the day after the rain, from just behind Griffith Park Observatory. There’s nothing like the views from up there after a rain. The air is crystal clear, and you can see down to Long Beach and out to Catalina. Unfortunately, it may be our last rain of the year, and smog season will be here in a matter of weeks.
Last year, I wrote a piece on the declining air quality in the Los Angeles basin, and it’s linked below. Have a look. Subsequent reports have highlighted the enormous cost of poor air quality not just here but around the world. Why do we tolerate it?
