Why: Our changing climate is predicted to increase temperatures which is likely to increase ozone pollution. Ozone is a well-known trigger for asthma attacks and is linked to a greater risk of premature death in adults and diminished lung capacity.  And, we are likely to see more pollen and mold affecting children with allergies.  We know, as mothers, parents and caregivers, that all of our children are especially vulnerable to air pollution and allergens.
