Air Quality Fundamentals

The California Air Resources Board, with the support of the California Air Pollution Control Officers Association, has developed a video series on Air Quality Fundamentals to provide an introduction to air pollution control and greenhouse gas emissions reduction in California.

Series Overview


Every day, harmful air pollutants are released into California’s air. In this video series, we will tell you about the various types of air pollutants, explain where they come from and how they affect us. We will also take a look at greenhouse gases, discuss their effect on climate change, and discuss how reducing their emissions can reduce climate change’s impacts. Watch to learn more about the government agencies that develop programs and actions to protect your health, improve the air that you breathe, and mitigate climate change.
