Air Pollution, Climate Change, and California's National Parks

California Clean Air and Climate Program | Air Pollution | Climate Change

California Clean Air and Climate Program 

Poor air quality and climate change are affecting the entire globe, including our national parks.  Greenhouse gas emissions that contribute to climate change are causing vanishing arctic ice, rising sea levels and increased western wildfires. As a result of climate change our national treasures are threatened by invasive species, flooding, early snowmelt, pest outbreaks, declining plant and animal populations, altered habitats and rising waters.  Air pollution from automobiles, trucks and power plants also results in poor air quality in many of our national parks, damaging plants, animals and visitor health.

Since 2007 NPCA's Pacific Region has had a Clean Air and Climate Program, focusing on outreach, education, legislation and advocacy.  Field offices in Fresno, Joshua Tree, and San Francisco work with the parks, public, decision makers and schools on programs and projects aimed at reducing air pollution and greenhouse gases as well as the effects of climate change.
