Hats off to Harold Reheis, a founding father of The Clean Air Campaign and former chairman, who yesterday officially rolled off The Clean Air Campaign's Board of Directors after some 15 years of service.
Before the mission became a movement centered on less traffic and cleaner air, Reheis
remembers working in the mid-90s "just to understand how Atlanta could meet tighter standards" for ground-level ozone.
"We focused on wringing everything we could out of stationary sources," he
explained, referring to the emissions that come from fixed objects like smokestacks.
"We realized we had to work at everything in order to reach the goal."
According to Reheis
, the best experiment to show how vehicle traffic and air quality are so closely linked happened when the Olympics came to metro Atlanta in the summer of 1996.

"I'm excited about where we've been and what we've achieved.
We need to keep working to identify more ways to solve the problem."
On behalf of the entire organization and all the people you've influenced in your work for less traffic and cleaner air, thanks, Harold

We felt that it was important to report ozone levels based on the tougher ozone standard , Reheis added.Residents of the region need to understand that this is a serious air quality problem that has negative implications for the environment and human health.Hopefully , the more they're aware of the situation , the more they'll change their driving habits which , in part , create the problem..
