Give it a good breeze and a rain and it cleans out just fine.

You write as if the air in Southern California just stays in Souther California like in a jar. The Earth rotates and it causes the air to be everywhere and anywere around the world. Sometimes the air is a bit bad in SoCal and other days they can be very clear.

After it rains and the winds blow, it's very clean. On holidays, when everyone stays home and doesn't drive on the freeways, the air is clean too. (Hmmm. I wonder why. )

Wow that's the understatement of the year. That's like saying Phoenix can sometimes get warm.

EscapeCalifornia,

I think it depends a lot on where you live in Southern California. Near the beaches, the air is usually pretty good. Inland, like San Bernardino and the Inland Empire, the area is usually not very good at all.

With all the mountains and the winds and whatnot, it's like everything else around here. Let's face it -- there is usually a 30 degree difference between the temperature in Woodland Hills and the temperature in Malibu -- and they are only about 20 miles apart. (That's always blown me away that you can have such great temperature differences between two close areas.)

It's so much better now than it used to be--and that's when we had fewer people here. New technologies and the pollution controls on gas have worked very well. I remember in high school there were days when we couldn't play team sports because the smog was so thick you couldn't see players on the far side of the field.

I live in central Orange County about 4 miles from the beach but I still see brown air in every direction I look except up on most days.
