“Clean air” has been a buzzworthy concept surrounding the environmental movement since the Clean Air Act of 1970, which was passed to help limit pollution and improve human health. But what does it mean to have “clean air” and how can we, as individuals, help to achieve it?

The Effects of Global Wildfires

In 2018, California experienced some of the largest wildfires in its history. The Mendocino Complex Fire, the biggest of several devastating fires that struck the state this summer, scorched more than 459,000 acres and continued burning for over a month. Similarly disastrous wildfires have sprung up across the globe this year, including in Canada, Greece, and Australia. The evidence is clear that climate change is altering the frequency and extent of wildfires worldwide. In a warmer world, wildfires are becoming larger, harder to control, and more destructive.

The California Air Resources Board (CARB) announced on July 11, 2018, that the state has met its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions reduction targets four years before the target year of 2020. This reduction target was established by AB 32, the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006, which set the goal for reducing GHG emissions to 1990 levels by 2020.
