This four-​part award-​winning series of articles offers a comprehensive look at air quality in southwestern Pennsylvania. The scope of the 14-​article series, winner of a national Folio award for regional journalism, ranges from the legacy of the region’s industrial past when Pittsburgh earned the reputation as the “Smoky City,” to the characteristics of the region’s air quality today, sources of pollution, and how the shift from coal to natural gas and the changing regulatory landscape impact the air we breath and efforts to make it cleaner.
