Bad Breathing: Tulsa Air Quality Gets an 'F'

Tulsa's air quality is, well, poor. 

That's the verdict rendered by the American Lung Association, which keeps track of such things. Using air quality statistics from 2006 to 2008, the association found Tulsa County had 32 high ozone "orange" days when the air was considered unhealthy for sensitive breathers. 

Tulsa County had three "red" days during that period, days when pollution levels were unhealthy for everyone. The information appears in today's Tulsa World.

The good news: Tulsa County had fewer high-ozone days in 2009 than in 2008. 

This is an improvement, of course, but there's still a long way to go before we have great air in T-town.
