moment of treehugging

the air in pittsburgh is unhealthy to breath for about four months of the year. 

pittsburgh is one of 10 major cities in the country to experience elevated levels of air pollution for more than 10 days a year, according to a new report from the penn environment research and policy center.

the study, published today, looks at national air quality data from 2016 in both urban and rural regions. among the country's most populated cities, pittsburgh ranked fourth most polluted, with 121 days in which half or more air monitoring locations reported elevated levels of particulate matter and ozone pollution.

the finding means pittsburgh has approximately four months per year when air pollution is above the level the epa says presents "little to no risk" to human health. other recent research indicates that the city is also in the midst of a childhood asthma epidemic. - environmental health news
