    Interesting but high amount of pollen is the main pollution problem here.

    High gas prices should help reduce pollution.

    I tried to download the whole report, but evidently there are some issues with the security certificate? IDK, anyway.....

    I live in western NC, Hickory. In the cleanest cities category, we are #25 on the "least polluted: Ozone" list; didn't make the cleanest cities in either the year-round nor short-term particle pollution categories. Fifty miles down the road is Charlotte; they're #13 on the "most polluted: Ozone" list :eek:oooh:.

    I put in my zip code, and it asked for my county. That section said Catawba county's 24 hour particle pollution grade is D, and that the annual particle pollution grade is FAIL. We didn't make any of the most polluted lists though.....

    These people definitely have a problem with their pin markers however. They're OFF by quite a ways, least as far as the southeast goes. :confused2:

    Glad I live out West where the wind blows that crap away. Our main concern here is mold,cedar pollen ,grass pollen and tree pollen.
