Bakersfield, CA is #1 on list of most pollutred cities in America

California has five of the 10 most polluted cities in the nation. Why is that?

The American Lung Association released their 2009 State of the Air report recently, listing the cities with the most polluted air in the country. This is a shameful list to be on.

#6 Hanford-Corcoran, CA

#7 St. Louis, Mo

#8 New York, NY

A number of factors contribute to what makes up a dirty atmosphere, including ozone pollution (which contributes to smog and triggers asthma), and particle pollution (which includes dust, pollen, and mold in the air). Find out why these cities were picked. Click here.
