The San Jose Mercury News had a totally condescending article yesterday titled "Los Angeles, San Joaquin lead nation in particulate pollution." Well lah-de-dah, San Jose! I guess we just weren't aware that our air could get pretty dirty! At least we get to wash down all those particulates with a sparkling glass of fresh (and stolen) NoCal water.The AP report says that "paved road dust" was among the biggest sources of pollution in this latest round of EPA tests. Yep, that sounds like us. Los Angeles County has been given 3 years to submit plans to meet particulate standards by 2010. Since LAist doubts that most of the city will decide to engage in Larry David-style conspicuous Hybrid consumption, we hope that this awesome new development towards fuel cell vehicles (Honda delivers 2 early models of its emissions-free FCX to air quality management district HQ) helps us get there.
