Southwest Ohio has Unhealthy Air

From the Journal of More Bad Things You Really Can't Do Much About comes the 2011 rankings of America's most polluted areas. Let's see how our region fared.

The rankings were done in 3 categories:

OZONE: Tristate is 15th worst
CHRONIC AIR POLLUTION: Tristate is 7th worst
ACUTE AIR POLLUTION: Not on list (I presume this means we're doing a good job of spreading out our historic building demolitions)

I guess I'm feeling good about my newly procured HEPA air cleaner. I haven't had it for long but I got it in the hope of helping my dust allergies. Now that I know we have the 7th worst air in America, maybe I should invest in another one.
