The Donora Inversion and The Origins of the Clean Air Act



In Episode 21 of Environmental Experts Radio, Host Dave Coyne is joined by Liberty Environmental Project Manager and resident ‘environmental historian’ Jon Wickstrom to discuss the tragic Donora Inversion of October 1948.  We explore how this incident – and others like it – led to the creation of the Clean Air Act and spurred the public’s growing awareness of clean air as a critically important resource.
