Lucas R., CA
I suffer from asthma. Over the 15 years that I have lived within a mile from the Santa MonicaAirport it has become much worse. What used to be seasonal asthma and allergies is now practically a constant, and I am seriously considering leaving Los Angeles.
The warning thatI read today on this website from the American Lung Association was very sobering. For many years people have protested the improper use of the SantaMonica airport, and the pollution it causes, seemingly to very little effect.
Of course, it is not just the airport. The entire county of Los Angeles receives an F and another F for Ozone and particulate matter in the air. Thank you for providing this service.
