How Clean is Our Air?

Recently there has been a lot of talk about how dirty and polluted the air is here in Houston. It can be particularly bad for people with asthma or compromised respiratory function. I visited the site to see just how bad it is, and well, we got an F in ozone and a D in particulate pollution. Just out of curiosity, and especially for us Houston transplants, how does your home state/city compare? Click on the map below, or visit and then add your comments to this post.

What's the State of Your Air?

Woo hoo! I'm from Louisiana and my home parish (what we calls counties in them there parts) scored a D and a C!

I'm afraid I've got you beat - my home state is Illinois and I'm from Richland county (which isn't in the list, but a nearby county of Effingham is). They score a grand A on the report card! No wonder I've developed allergies and asthma since moving away.

My fiancee is from Flint Michigan. They scored a B and C. Not too bad I suppose compared to here. He has constant allergies down here but claims he always has had. They did get much worse after moving here. Also, I am a school nurse, and have witnessed the effects of high ozone days on students with Asthma.
