There are plenty of ways to help clean Valley's air

'Need to do more'

So now we should expect clean air between 2017 and 2024? I still remember the promise of clean air by 1977 in the Clean Air Act of 1970.

Clean air is related to fuel efficiency. One of the most significant causes of fuel inefficiency is under-inflated tires. Perhaps we need a more efficient Clean Air Act -- one that would require free compressed air and tire-pressure gages at every gas station.

Of course I also recommend walking, riding a bicycle or taking the bus (something that I have done for the past 40 years). It is very pleasant, for example, to catch up with the news on the way to work with a copy of The Fresno Bee (sold on many buses for 25 cents). A one-month pass for unlimited trips on FAX buses costs only $35; a monthly pass that covers both FAX and Clovis buses costs $40.

The reality is that we all need to do more if we want clean air. What are you willing to do?
