I started developing symptoms a few years ago, after repeated bouths of bronchitis and pneumonia. This year’s astonishingly high pollen counts sent it into overdrive, forcing me to rely on 5 different medications when it was at its worst.

I never had asthma as a child. Poor work enviorment and companies that did not follow EPA or OSHA standards has now changed my life forever.

From the Admin Officer to the messenger are heavily smoking, that I smell this smoke throughout the whole day in the corridor. There are about five signals in each floor announce that “NO SMOKING”

I can remember going to school in the 1960s and 1970s and how hard it was with breathing having to walk to school in seriously polluted air. The air then was a lot worse than now and sometimes smog would be so thick it would completely blot out the sun. Many newspaper editorialists, radio talkshow hosts, and Fox News Commentators like to talk about the horrible California Air Resources Board and how bad the EPA and the Clean Air Act are to the economy; but I think the California EPA and the USEPA have done a great job and have still more work to do. I think subprime rate home loans and ajustible rate mortgages brought about the recession, not the Clean Air Act. Best wishes, Michael E. Bailey.
