Where can you go to breathe easier? It may not be where you think.

Take a deep breath. Chances are, the air filling your lungs is far from pure. Even if you live in a clean, ecologically conscious area, you may be inhaling pollutants from faraway, less-pristine locales.

Wow, I cant believe any place in America didn't make the list. I noticed Easter Island did and thats a place I would love to see as well as quite a few others....if only I was rich! In all seriousness though its imperitive for everyone to start using a nasal cleanse due to how toxic the air is where most of us live.

Just because it isn't listed does NOT mean it doesn't exist... clean air in America does exist (well to a certain degree, not completely clean)... here is a list for you...

And once again they miss the flyover states completely! Well, that's good - don't want a bunch of air sniffin' liberals around me anyway. The only thing I ever smell out here is cow poop. Which is nice - smells like money to my ranching neighbors... and danged good fertilizer to me!

You can keep snorting your cow poop.

Back towards the article, it really seemed to backwards point towards a single thing -- Cars + Coal = dirty air.

How do we start getting rid of these (Cars + Coal) crap producers?

It reminds me of the old theory that Australia and New Zealand would be the last victims of nuclear fallout because of the prevailing wind currents. Can you say massive migration?
