D.C., Baltimore smog is sixth-worst among U.S. cities
If you happen to live in Los Angeles and were thinking of escaping the notorious air pollution there by moving to our region, you might want to reconsider. Washington is tied with Baltimore for sixth on a list of the country's smoggiest areas, behind only cities in California, and are tied for third among "large metropolitan areas," behind Riverside-Bernadino and Los Angeles–Long Beach.
D.C. and Baltimore's 33 smog days in 2010 are responsible for the high ranking in the Environment America report [pdf]. Philadelphia and Atlanta didn't fare much better. Best we can tell, if you want clean air and an urban environment, you should move to Anchorage, Alaska.
