California is full of liberals who claim to be environmentally conscious. That’s why they were particularly humiliated today to learn that their state has some of the most polluted cities in the country…
USA Today reported that six of the top 10 most worst city in terms of air pollution are located in California. The American Lung Association’s annual “State of the Air” report found that the city of Bakersfield is once again guilty of having the USA’s most days of highly polluted air, based on data from 2013-2015.
The report also included cities with the worst spikes of short-term pollution, led by Bakersfield, cities with the worst overall year-round pollution, led by Visala/Hanford, Calif., and cities with the worst ozone pollution, led by the Los Angeles/Long Beach area.
Paul Billings of the American Lung Association explained that the state’s soaring population and topography allow air pollution to overcome the state’s strict environmental laws.
