Second only to California Idaho has the worst air quality in the nation. Due to a rise in fires and air changes Idaho’s air quality has dropped to an all time low. Neighboring states Montana, Wyoming and Oregon have better air quality.
Air quality may not always mean something to everyone, but it does to those who are sensitive. Emergency room visits and deaths rise with bad air quality. Industries that put out toxic air emissions have bought their way out instead of cracking down on proper air emissions use. This has caused problems for many states that are already over populated, and have an overflow of cars and other pollutants.
