Today I emailed four local news channels in Tucson, 4, 9, 11 and 13, asking them to post air quality numbers, along with the temperatures in TV weather reports. I notice that once the air quality is no longer "good" but up in the "moderate" range, I wheeze and feel more tired. If the air quality is "unhealthy" my nose and throat will burn. Having that information on the news will not only help people plan when to go outside and enjoy cleaner air, but it will also raise awareness that we have a nearly invisible problem with pollution.
