So we just pretend California doesn't own the top 6 spots for worst air polluted cities in the US?
If the state would have changed zoning and limited population density to say 1970s or 1980s levels around the big cities I bet it would look a lot different. I bet they wouldn't solidly own all of those top spots.
But instead they allowed unchecked growth and assumed technology would eliminate the problem.
Their "remedies" earned them the top 6 or 7 most air polluted cities in the nation.
What's even more fascinating is they convinced people to think a place with the worst air pollution is some how a success story when it comes to air pollution.
Last place is still last place.
