Trivia Tidbit Of The Day: Part 325 -- Smog.
It's Getting Better All The Time-
Not only is the American economy rocking, the environment isn't doing so shabby, either:
Ozone smog levels have plummeted during the last three years. Between 2003 and 2005, the fraction of the nation's ozone monitors violating the federal 8-hour ozone standard plunged from 43 percent down to a record-low 18 percent. The last three years were the three lowest-ozone years on record.
Awesome news. Which means you may never see much of anything about it in the establishment media. An evolving, vibrant economy no longer means more pollution, as it did in the 19th century. Indeed, as established economies expand, appliances and vehicles and other machines associated with progress become cleaner, safer, and more energy-efficient.
Meanwhile, these and other numbers on the environment are accumulating in a broad body of evidence, proving that the President's market-based environmental solutions haven't "opened the doors for big polluters" or any other such alarmist nonsense.
Things are getting better, folks. They're getting better all the time.

Speaking strictly from my experience in Florida, weather patterns seem to have more of an impact on ozone levels than traffic congestion or industrial sources. Our worst air pollution years (1998, 1999) have been during summers when the air was stagnant. During normal years and abnormal years on the other end of the spectrum (read: hurricanes) ozone air pollution has not been a problem.

I think it is because American's have to drive less to all of the different boutique stores in their old downtowns and instead can save so much fuel by simply going to the local Walmart Supercenter for all their shopping needs.
Just a thought. You think that hypothesis will ever by reported by the MSM? =)

If gasoline prices stay above $3.00, I would expect the numbers to plummet even further as more fuel efficient vehicle sales increase and people's transit habits change.
