Bay Area air quality now among worst in nation

According to a report issued Tuesday by the American Lung Association, the San Jose-San Francisco-Oakland metro area isn't in good shape when it comes to air quality.

SF Gate summarizes:

The Bay Area ranked sixth worst in the nation from 2014 to 2016 in terms of short-term particle pollution in a new “State of the Air 2018” report... The region ranked 13th worst in the country for ozone pollution, which scientists say is due to climate change and warming temperatures across the globe, and several Bay Area counties experienced more unhealthy ozone days than previous years.
