Charlotte Smog


Smog The Charlotte-Gastonia-Salisbury region was recently named the tenth smoggiest area in the nation. That's actually two spots better than last year's 8th overall ranking, but our air quality continues to be among the worst in the country. We'll look at our air quality with an eye focused on smog. Our panel includes a chemist who will help us understand exactly what smog is made of, why or if it's seasonal and how it interacts with the environment and on our respiratory system. Join us for a look at our air quality and the smog in it. Guests June Blotnick - Executive Director, Clean Air Carolina Cindy Hauser - Associate Professor, Chemistry Dept.
