For a few blissful weeks, the air was as clean as I’ve ever seen it here in Los Angeles. In March, our city experienced its longest streak of consecutive days with “good” air quality since the mid-1990s.
For us, this is the grim irony of the current public health crisis. With far fewer cars on the road, only a few weeks of reduced fossil fuel pollution has dramatically improved air quality here and around the world.
