Ironically, Houston is under a Air Quality Alert today.

I track this stuff nationally on my website: IwantCleanAir.com.

The Houston area is in the Unhealthy zone of the EPA's Air Quality Index (Code Red) meaning that everyone, and especially children, should limit the amount of exertion they do outside.

Those who have lung or heart problems, like asthma, should avoid outdoor exertion altogether.

It seems to me that Houston has a long way to go before it can be considered a healthy place to live.

But still, US must go toward a cleaner future.
