Air pollution from burning of fossil fuels causes health problems, acid rain, and climate change. A transition to renewable energy and a new generation of zero emission vehicles (ZEVs) is underway to help solve these problems.


  • Clean Air in London Campaigning to achieve urgently and sustainably compliance with World Health Organisation guidelines for air quality throughout London
  • Controlling Air Pollution from Motor Vehicles - NYS Dept. of Environmental Conservation "Motor vehicles are significant sources of pollution that can damage the environment and pose public health issues. ... Carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, and hydrocarbons are released when fuel is burned in an internal combustion engine and when air/fuel residuals are emitted through the vehicle tailpipe. ... The pollutants in vehicle emissions are known to damage lung tissue, and can lead to and aggravate respiratory diseases, such as asthma. Motor vehicle pollution also contributes to the formation of acid rain and adds to the greenhouse gases that cause climate change."


  • 2011.10.21 - The Right To Breathe - YouTube - AQMDAirNewsNetwork "The Right to Breathe is a documentary film by the South Coast Air Quality Management District on the serious health effects of Southern California's air pollution shared through stories of individuals. This film captures air quality issues in Southern California from an emotionally powerful and personal perspective. Directed by award-winning documentary filmmaker Alexandre Philippe, creative director of Cinema Vertige, the film is meant to make viewers aware of the serious health effects of air pollution while also inspiring them to take action and participate in practical solutions to help improve our air."
  • 2011.02.22 - A GASP for Clean Air - YouTube - GASPforCleanAir "Forty years ago, a public health crisis in Birmingham caused by unchecked air pollution motivated a group of young citizens and their allies to act. They organized and formed GASP (Greater Birmingham Alliance to Stop Pollution) and began to advocate for cleaning up the air. Inspired by the passage of the Clean Air Act, the first Earth Day and a desire for change, they succeeded in shaking up the seemingly impenetrable establishment and they paved the way for a healthier, cleaner community. For the 40th Anniversary of the Clean Air Act we honor the efforts and accomplishments of those who fought for healthy air forty years ago, and recognize there is still work to be done."
