    We have the same problems here in the San Joaquin Valley in California where I live. Lots of people, especially children, coming down with asthma due to the air pollution. With all the debate over global warming, the matter of poor air quality which is an undeniable public health problem seems to be ignored. Transitioning to electric cars is one small way to help.

    And this is in the age of catalytic converters and cleaner diesel engines, industry has all but moved out of the city..yet levels are still above allowed limits.
    Air pollution is by all means is not the only cause factor behind asthma, but has been shown to increase the likelyhood of developing it if pre-disposed to the gene. As I can vouch it exacerbates the condition and others
