The government is using our tax dollars to require improved air quality and to report on the progress of those improvement efforts. Those reports are available to us. You can be knowledgeable about the status of our air quality currently, how it compares to the past, and the effect of climate change.
 
This interactive course gives you the report done by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. You get charts, details about pollutants, and supportive activities to help you understand and retain the report information.
Course Objectives
At the conclusion of this course, you will be able to:
  • Select the key regulations included in the EPA’s Office of Air Quality Planning and Standards Report.
  • Identify how pollutants react in various regions and climatic conditions and its effect on air quality.
  • Recognize the measures that individuals and companies need to take in order to reduce CO2 emissions.
  • List the six “criteria” pollutants in which human health and the environment should be safeguarded.
  • Identify what contributes to increased levels of toxic emissions and the various national control programs that are in place to decrease these levels and improve air quality.
  • Explain how the EPA uses modeling to identify ambient levels, inhalation exposures, and health risks associated with emissions of toxic air pollutants.
