She suggested ridesharing and using electric vehicles as ways to help cut down on ozone pollution.

In total, the ALA found that roughly 40 percent of people in the USA live in counties with unhealthy air quality or ozone pollution. During those years, the report reads, "more cities had high days of ozone and short-term particle pollution compared to 2014-2016 and many cities measured increased levels of year-round particle pollution".

Colorado Springs ranked number 13 for Cleanest U.S. Cities for Year-round Particle Pollution while Pueblo/Cañon City came in at number 7.

"We have sunshine most of the year", she said.

These moves have seemed to cause some alarm at the American Lung Association, which insists that 'the Clean Air Act must remain intact and enforced to enable the nation to continue to protect all Americans from the dangers of air pollution, ' the association said in its report. The area also ended up at No. 17 for "short-term particle pollution".

Oregon's air is getting worse - according to a new report from the American Lung Association.

Bakersfield tops the list for unhealthy particle pollution days, and Los Angeles-Long Beach for unhealthy ozone days.

Beyond the Valley's problematic topography - a bowl surrounded by mountain ranges that traps pollution in - he highlighted transportation-related pollution sources, including from major highways and railways. Notably, the large wildfires of 2018 aren't included in this data, said Nolen, who has worked on State of the Air every year for the past 20 years.

Climate change brings higher temperatures, drought, floods, wildfires and other extreme weather that makes it harder to breathe and makes pollution worse.

Bangor, Maine, and the Burlington-South Burlington area in Vermont were named by the association as two of the six cleanest-air cities in the country.
