Environmental Justice Research by CARB

We breathe the air that is polluted by a wide variety of causes and sources. We drink water that might not be as pure as natural spring water. We eat foods contaminated with air borne and chemically added pollutants.

All these sources of potentially harmful pollutants permeate our communities' air, water and soil systems. But some communities have more pollutants than others -- and that's what "environmental justice" addresses.

There have been "dumping ground" pollicies from decades ago that continue to build and fester in some commnities. Property values are affected. Superfund cleanups are the result of some of these irresponsible business and community practices. But it goes deeper than past sins. Today's landfills and transportation corridors continue to pollute air and water supplies.

What do we do about this pervasive problem?

First we must identify the problem in its many shapes and forms. Then address both remediation and reduction of current practices that cause asthma and heart problems and respiratory problems and even maturation children and sexual organ deformations. Environmental justice is about the flow of air and water through ALL our communities, and is picking up support as more information is coming to light about the status of problems, potential solutions, and effectiveness of solutions.

California Air Resources Board Addresses Air Pollution

California Air Resources Board Environmental Justice Policy VII states: "It shall be the ARB's policy to support research and data collection needed to reduce cumulative emissions, exposure, and health risks in all communities, especially low-income and minority communities."
