Air Pollution in Los Angeles

Air Pollution in Los Angeles - MAU Mask

LA has had the worst smog in the US for the past 19 years (2000 - 2019).

High ozone days and spikes in particle pollution have increased, putting millions more people at risk and adding challenges to cleaner air.

While recent wildfires and heat waves are partly to blame for Los Angeles’s poor air quality, the city also suffers from bowl-shaped topography that traps in pollutants, a sunny climate that naturally forms ozone, and extremely heavy vehicular traffic that causes photochemical smog.
