Lawsuit Pushes Trump EPA to Address Asthma-causing Air Pollution in Phoenix, Northern California

OAKLAND, Calif. — The Center for Biological Diversity and Center for Environmental Health sued the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency today for failing to address smog and soot pollution affecting more than 1.5 million people in Arizona and Northern California.

Today’s lawsuit, filed in federal court in California, challenges the EPA’s failure to develop air-quality plans to curb soot from fine particulate matter pollution in Yolo and Solano counties, west of Sacramento, and to act on California’s plan to reduce soot in Plumas County, north of Lake Tahoe.

The suit also challenges the agency’s failure to act on Arizona’s plans that address smog from ozone pollution in the Phoenix metro area.

“The Trump EPA’s lack of action recklessly endangers the lives of hundreds of thousands of Arizona and California residents with serious breathing and heart problems,” said Robert Ukeiley, a senior attorney at the Center for Biological Diversity. “It’s shameful that this pollution-friendly administration believes it’s acceptable for millions of people to breathe dirty air.”

What food causes wheezing or asthma for you?

For me, the ice cream @ Mc Donald's would cause asthma. How about you guys, is there any particular food that you eat, would spike up your wheezing/asthma right away?


Cooking in oil, smell of baking pizza and garlic effect me the most.
