Just how much is Asia's ozone to blame for bad air in the U.S.?
Los Angeles Times - 1/31/2015.
By Tony Barboza - Experts say that as U.S. air quality improves, Asian emissions — previously thought to have a negligible effect here — are having a stronger influence on smog levels, particularly in western states that sit at higher elevation and arefirst exposed to the pollutants.
