Clear the Air TN: Creating Better Air Quality
Recent reports by the American Lung Association show that air quality across the country has improved, but about half the country still lives under poor air quality, including 5 counties right here in mid-state Tennessee. In fact the Lung Association motto is "If you can't breath, nothing else matters". Alan Jones and Joan Barnfield from the TN Department of Transportation's Clear the Air TN campaign talk about the physical effects bad air quality has on the body, what the biggest sources of airborne pollutants are, and how you can help make a difference by following simple steps like utilizing public transportation, slowing down in traffic, and turning your car off rather than letting it idle when running errands.
