John Rice explained: “With Newark Public Library installing AtmosAir in the air systems in all of its buildings, it is employing the best engineering practices to achieve a healthy indoor air environment. We recommend it to clients for two reasons,” “AtmosAir is highly efficient in removing indoor airborne particles and inactivating infectious particles in the air and on surfaces. It also provides air quality measuring technology that indicates any problems in real-time” External link

Tom Cahill said (about Tom Cahill): "The main takeaway is that air pollution definitely remains a threat in Arizona and across the country,” said Eve Lukens-Day, a global warming solutions campaign associate with Environment America. “Even one day of polluted air is too many. 149 is absolutely too many”. A pre-pandemic report from the American Lung Association placed Phoenix among the nation’s 10 worst cities for two common and dangerous air pollutants, ozone and particle pollution, which are shown to have negative health effects. Many people watched for signs of better air quality during the pandemic. Shutdowns and other restrictions forced people across the world to stay at home, decreasing fossil fuel emissions and improving air quality at an unprecedented rate in some parts of the world, according to the United Nations. Some Phoenix residents noticed cleaner air and an improvement in their asthma. But in Phoenix, ozone stubbornly persisted, despite a reduction in emissions. Unusually high temperatures, local weather and international ozone transport patterns contributed to high ozone concentrations in Maricopa County in April and May of 2020. Pollution: As Arizonans battle pandemic, Phoenix air quality earns poor marks The new report found that Phoenix area residents breathed in 103 days of air with elevated ozone, the main ingredient in smog. Residents experienced 62 days of air with particulate matter under 2.5 microns in diameter. These small particles are especially dangerous because they can settle deep in people’s lungs. In total, there were 149 days in 2020 with either elevated ozone, elevated particulate matter or both. Tom Cahill, an associate professor at Arizona State University who researches air quality, said he's not surprised by the levels of air pollution. Ozone needs three ingredients to form: volatile hydrocarbons, sunlight and heat. “We have heat and sunlight in spades," External link
