"Near record-setting heat from our changing climate has resulted in risky levels of ozone in many cities across the country, making ozone an urgent health threat for millions of Americans", said Harold P. Wimmer, CEO and president of the association, in a press release. "We also call on the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to implement and enforce the law instead of trying to roll back major safeguards like the Clean Power Plan and cleaner cars, both steps that help us fight climate change and reduce air pollution". It presents the "latest analysis of worldwide air pollution exposures and health impacts" and is a global update on outdoor, or ambient, air pollution.

The report notes that even though China experienced substantial increases in population-weighted exposure before 2010, which the report attributes partly to dramatic scale of economic development in the country, it notes that "since then the exposures have stabilised and even begun to decline slightly".

Unfortunately, ozone pollution is on the rise statewide due to warmer temperatures, which makes ozone more likely to form and harder to clean up. But ozone remains a relatively new issue to the Wasatch Front, which has more commonly struggled with wintertime particulate pollution. Several areas saw an increase in unhealthy days for ozone including in Wheeling, Charleston and Huntington.

The annual State of Global Air Report stated that air pollution was the fourth-highest cause of death among all health risks globally, coming in below high blood pressure, diet and smoking. Yet Siler said many Utahns fail to take steps to reduce their emissions - such as turning off the auto while waiting to pick up their kids. Just a few years ago in the rural town of Pinedale, Wyoming, excessive pollution from oil and gas facilities at times created smog rivaling that of Los Angeles - which routinely tops the charts as one of the nation's most polluted cities. The cities on the list were Bellingham, Washington; Burlington-South Burlington, Vermont; Casper, Wyoming; Honolulu, Hawaii; Palm Bay-Melbourne-Titusville, Florida; and Wilmington, North Carolina. Each year the agency reviews smog data for counties across the USA and determines which counties might be in violation of the nation's clean air laws. "We must continue the life-saving work of cutting air pollution and slowing climate change".
