Did you know that air pollution is not only in crowded places and industrial areas, it is also a big problem in gardens, with more than 96% of US national parks evaluated in a recent report suffering from major air pollution problems. Some of California’s most famous parks aree among the most polluted areas, according to one of the country’s largest non-profit conservation societies.

According to the site “phys“, the National Parks Protection Association said that 401 parks out of 417 are polluted, national parks inspected and found to have problems related to air pollution in at least one of four areas: climate change, damage to nature, Vision, air is unhealthy to breathe.

In the year 2018, California’s four parks – the Sequoia, Kings Canyon, Joshua Tree and Mochav National Parks – measured unhealthy weather conditions for visitors and garden guards for more than two months of the year. The worst days are usually in the summer.

The report claims that temperatures at national parks are rising at double the rate of the U.S. as a whole, “threatening the very existence of namesake features at Glacier, Joshua Tree and Saguaro National Parks.”

Climate change, the report says, is “intensifying flooding, drought and wildfires.” All three of which have had an especially large presence in California over the past decade.

Most of the air pollution in these parks comes from vehicles and agricultural industry in the San Joaquin Valley, the report says.

The unhealthy air is an important problem in 85% of its 417 observable parks, 88% of nature is damaged.
