* * A Noteworthy Quote * *
"... no one has the right to endanger public health by altering the chemistry
of the air we breathe."
The former mayor of Houston, Texas, Bill White, put polluters on notice that their actions would not
be tolerated in a city that has vied with Los Angeles for the nation's worst smog.
We now need Santa Monica local officials, and our U.S. Representatives to
do the same!
This website is a community service, concentrating on the area around the Santa Monica Airport in California. However,
we recognize that air and noise pollution as well as other environmental and
safety concerns from jet aircraft is a national and global issue, and we invite all
to use this website. We hope to be able to join together interested parties, from all states, to form a national caucus,
in order that we can direct our governmental officials to mandate changes in how the FAA regulates air transportation.
This Website,and how effective we are is up to the collective efforts of all of
us.The investment of time does not have to be great, but if we invest our time and efforts wisely, the returns can be enormous.
Get involved, get on our contact list to be informed, E-mail your suggestions, collect data on fumes from jets, call the airport staff, call city officials from both Santa Monica and Los
Angeles, and know that we have a right to fresh air!
