Healthy Outdoor Air
Every day the American Lung Association and its supporters fight for clean and healthy outdoor air for all Americans.
On the local, state, and national levels, we fight to clean up heavy polluters like dirty power plants and old diesel fleets. We work for tougher laws and regulations to close loopholes and respond to new science on pollution.
We work to make sure both polluters and the government follow the laws that protect the air we breathe. We lead the fight to get safer limits on the amount of pollution allowed in the air.
We arm people with the knowledge to understand what’s in the air they breathe and what needs to be done to make it better. Our annual State of the Air report tells you how dirty or how clean the air is in your community. And there's so much more...
We've made extraordinary progress, but air pollution is still an ever-present health threat.
Poor air quality can worsen asthma and cause heart attacks. Protect yourself: find out the air quality in your community at www.stateoftheair.org.
