arbcombo -- Chair’s Lecture: Air Pollution in Developing Mega-Cities - Something Old, Something New - Lessons from Los Angeles Posted: 24 Jul 2014 10:32:32
We are pleased to announce the next Series topic:. “Air Pollution in Developing Mega-Cities - Something Old, Something New – Lessons from Los Angeles” (Presentation is available for downloading) http://www.arb.ca.gov/research/lectures/speakers/parrish/parrish.htm David D. Parrish, Ph.D. Colorado Institute for Research in Environmental Studies Thursday, August 7, 2014 1:30 pm, PDT (WEBCAST) Sierra Hearing Room, 2nd Floor, Cal/EPA Building 1001 I Street, Sacramento, California Over half of humanity lives in cities. The number of megacities (with populations over 10 million) grew from 3 in 1975 to 19 in 2007, and is projected to increase to 27 in 2025. These megacities are the engines of growing economies, but are also very large sources of air pollutants and climate-forcing agents. This talk will examine how several important air pollutants in Los Angeles have responded to control measures over the decades, and show how present pollution in Beijing compares with earlier decades in Los Angeles. A qualitative discussion of the relationship of pollutant concentrations to urban population provides some interesting insights into urban air pollution. Finally, it will be argued that the much larger population density of eastern Asia compared to the western United States is likely to greatly increase the difficulty of improving the air quality in Beijing compared to the Los Angeles experience.
