The rise of tourism in Florida generates exceptionally dangerous levels of ozone in April, May, and June. Bad Ozone, unlike that in the upper atmosphere, can lead to chest pain, coughing, throat irritation, and airway inflammation.
Gas burning power plants are the main contributor to a rise of bad ozone in the atmosphere, commonly referred to as smog. Flordia, already overrun with the harmful gases from cars during the summer, must work to mitigate these smog sources in a sustainable way. You can do your part to eliminate smog and protect Florida’s air quality by supporting Bill H0097, which pushes Florida to reach 100% renewable energy by 2050.
