The EPA and Congress have said we must lower the allowable ozone pollution in our cities. In the past ten years hospital admissions for asthma have doubled and air quality specialists are pointing to alarming statistics correlating smog levels with high rates of respiratory disease as well as higher mortality rates.

This documentary looks at the decreasing quality of our air and examines how certain political choices and sociocultural factors have led us to this crisis. With insight and wit, The Air We Breathe examines our addiction to the automobile, the environmental consequences of urban sprawl, and the damaging effects of commuter culture on both the air and our overall quality of life.
