What is it?
When we talk air pollution, we're not messing around. It's the nasty stuff we pump into the sky, thanks to driving, factories, and power production. Think particulate matter, sulfur dioxide, and more. Bad news? It wrecks air quality and your health. Living in the city, you might struggle to breathe, face heart issues, and other health woes. Plus, there's smog, bad visibility, and damage to our environment.
Why it matters.
Pollution isn't just a buzzkill; it messes with everything - our health, our wallets, and even our planet. Breathing iffy air? That's a one-way ticket to health problems, sky-high medical bills, and a grumpy day. Plus, it wrecks our environment, making smog and hurting our nature friends. We need to clean up our act, hit those air quality goals, and follow emission rules. It's a fairness thing too - the most vulnerable communities often get hit hardest. And it's our nod to fighting climate change and building a healthier, happier city life.
