ozone formation and movement in Southern California. Ozone remains one
of the most health-damaging pollutants of urban smog.
The Air Resources Board is a department

is to promote and protect public health, welfare, and ecological resources
through effective reduction of air pollutants while recognizing and considering
effects on the economy. The ARB oversees all air pollution control
efforts in California to attain and maintain health based air quality standards.
The energy challenge facing California is real. Every Californian needs to take immediate action to reduce energy consumption.
