Strike Phoenix from that list; it doesn't even rank in the top 25...Gets bad in Denver unfortunately. Beautiful western views of the Rockies on a clear day but ugly, flat land to the east...It is weird.

WRONG! The old Denver air was that way! Not now! I will let you lookup the new Denver stats! One of the metores with the cleanest air in the NAtion! Now go school yourself! I will not deny that we do get the smog cloud in the summer, but our air is still among the most clean of any big metro in the US!

Denver nor Phoenix are on the worst year round air quality for people nor are they on the "cleanest air in the nation" lists either:

Report lists worst, best cities for air quality

Annual 'State of the Air' notes 186 million breathe unhealthy air at times
