AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Delhi, another polluted city , in a Country that takes 3 rd place, behind China & USA , breathes clean air for the first time in decades.

Let’s not forget, viruses are carried by pollutants too! Also, underlying asthma makes you more susceptible to a Covid 19 infection. Worldwide heealth & healthcare will become a priority along with lower Carbon Emissions. There is a direct correlation between them!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Utah to pass Legislation that protects its citizens from polluted air trapped in the valleys. They’re aware poor air quality comes from Carbon Emissions and want to preserve their air quality. It’s good for the ski industry & it’s good for peopke. We don’t want to be the like the Himalayas or the Pyrenees, losing snow cover? Why won’t all the States consider the affect of pollution on people?
