CAB’s Year in Review

Join Clean Air Board members as we look back at highlights of 2017.   On Dec. 7, we will go over past events, new scientific findings, and insights from our work in the community.

Some of the questions asked and answered this past year:

Are bees allergic to air pollution?

Do trees remove pollutants?

Does air pollution affect brain activity?

Where do we rank nationally among clean air metro areas?

How can we use the VW penalty fund to reduce diesel pollution?

What will rural Cumberland County look like in the future?

How will climate change affect our air?

Will the Clean Air Act or a Climate bill save us?

Meet with us on Dec. 7, 7:00 pm at Second Presbyterian Church, 528 Garland Drive, Carlisle, PA  17013.  Bring your questions and curiosity.  Light refreshments will be served.

Clean Air Board heard on WITF’s Smart Talk

The American Lung Association’s “State of the Air” report for 2015 concluded the Harrisburg-York-Lebanon region has the 12th worst air in the nation for year-round particle pollution.  The region actually lost ground finishing 33rd in 2014.

The drop in rankings doesn’t mean the region’s air quality is worse, but is still a reason to be concerned.

How did it get that way and maybe the better question is what can be done to improve the region’s air quality?

Appearing on Monday’s Smart Talk to answer those questions and others are Margaret Parsons, the Healthy Air Campaign Coordinator with the American Lung Association of the Mid-Atlantic and Thomas Au, President of the Clean Air Board of Central Pennsylvania.
