Description

Despite decades of improvement, air pollution still cuts short more than 100,000 American lives every year — more than guns, more than car accidents, more than the flu. We’ll look at the impact and causes of this often under-covered menace, talking science, health and policy. Panelists will explore how dirty air intersects with racial disparities, economic inequality and climate change. You'll hear how residents of Colorado's most polluted neighborhood experience the effects of their dirty air, what's really in the wildfire smoke that regularly engulfs western cities and how regulatory rollbacks may further affect air quality and public health.
