Air Quality Fact

The earth’s surface and ocean temperatures are rising, with the 1990’s the warmest decade on record. Today, most scientists agree that man made (or anthropogenic) sources of greenhouse gases are, at least partly, to blame. The largest source of greenhouse gases in the Bay Area is mobile sources. Carbon dioxide is the most abundant of the greenhouse gases; however, other gases like methane and nitrous oxide are also involved.

History of Air District

Since 1955, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District has been working to improve air Quality in the Bay Area.

The Air District will continue to work to improve our quality of life in the Bay Area. Future challenges — like climate change and reducing diesel emissions — will require good science, creativity and community involvement.
