This is one of our beautiful New Mexico sunsets, unfortunately so very brilliant because of a forest fire raging nearby. The fire seasons seem to be getting worse and worse as climate change continues and the drought intensifies.
Clean Air Ambassador | Santa Fe, New Mexico
A native Midwesterner, I first came to New Mexico in 1977, drawn by its exceptional climate and clear skies. Since I moved here full-time in 1996, I have witnessed the deterioration of the air quality and an increase in health related issues such as allergies, asthma and other respiratory problems. We can and must do better for the health and well-being of all of us, but most particularly for our children who are our future.

50 States United For Healthy Air
Clean air should be a fundamental right. Air pollution causes asthma attacks, lung disease, and even death. But our bodies don't have to be the dumping ground for dirty industries.
The technology to dramatically reduce harmful air pollution is available today, and major polluters should be required to use it.
Clean Air Ambassadors from every state are sending a powerful message: Everyone has a right to breathe clean, healthy air.
It’s time Congress and the EPA used their ears to help our lungs.
