      Sierra Club, San Gorgonio Chapter Monthly Meeting

      The next meeting of the San Gorgonio Chapter, Sierra Club will be Tuesday, September 3, 2019, 7:30 p.m. at the San Bernardino County Museum, 2014 Orange Tree Lane, Redlands. Dr. Sunni Ivey, University of California, Riverside will present a program titled, “Smoggy Summer Inland Valley”.

      Summers in our Inland Valleys often come with triple digit temperatures. As they rise we also see an increase in bad air quality days for our communities. This year alone we have had over 40 days in a row with warnings for Bad Air Quality for ozone, the source of smog. Last summer we experienced over 90 bad air quality days continuing all the way into October. The cause and proliferation of ground level ozone, which is completely different than the ozone layer, is well known and preventable.

      Join us at our September Chapter meeting to learn about what causes smoggy air and what you can do to stop the increase of deadly pollution in our communities. UC Riverside Professor of Chemical Engineering Dr. Sunni Ivey will explain how smog works and the serious health hazards we face here in the Inland Empire. She is a supporter of the Sierra Club My Generation Campaign, Sierra Club locally and at the national level supports our efforts in the Inland Valley to stop pollution in our skies as well as promote opportunities to get off of fossil fuels. Come learn more about how we can move towards renewable solutions for local transportation, power, and buildings. Meetings are free and open to the public. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. so come early and mingle!
