Last month’s review

December was wet and windy. But thanks to the winter weather, last month had the cleanest air since we set up monitoring equipment in the neighborhood during the summer of 2014!

For the first time, the Chinatown-International District’s air quality remained in the “good” range for all the days of the month. A great end to the year!

Did you know?

Idling a car or truck for more than ten seconds uses more fuel (and creates more pollution) than restarting the vehicle.
