Pittsburgh is 6th worst in terms of air pollution, according to a 2014 report from the American Lung Association.

Using mobile laboratories, called the “Breathmobiles,”Albert Presto of Carnegie Mellon University drove throughout Allegheny County collecting pollution data.

Not surprisingly, places where there’s lots of cars also exhibit high pollution.

He will present these maps in a public forum at 7pm tonight in the First Unitarian Church of Pittsburgh, 605 Morewood Ave., Shadyside.

Editor’s note: Driving to this event will literally make Pittsburgh’s air worse.
