Yifang Zhu Study Featured in NBC 4 Los Angeles: Traffic Reduction Impacts Southern California’s Air Quality

Experts say transitioning to cleaner technology for all things mobile including the larger contributors of emissions like ships and trucks will lead to more sustainable long-term changes. Dr. Yifang Zhu from UCLA’s Department of Environmental Health Sciences and Institute of Environment and Sustainability says our future air quality could be decided by how we end up getting back to work. “The pandemic gave us a time to pause and reflect and thinking about what kind of society, what kind of environment we want to live in,” said Zhu. “Also how much work can I do remotely versus how much work that I really have to commute to the office and do it in person.”
