The Missoula Valley’s winter inversion is back.
Inversions trap a dense layer of cold air under a layer of warm air, acting like a lid that prevents pollutants from rising.
To mitigate the negative effects, Missoula In Motion has launched the second annual Clear the Air Challenge.
For the month of January, Missoula In Motion will challenge citizens to reduce the amount of C02 they emit into the air by trying to limit their solo driving trips.
Vehicle emissions and road dust account for a significant portion of all air pollution in Missoula.
By simply choosing a different way of getting around, we can make a big difference in our community.
Taking the bus, walking or carpooling can help.
Participants can sign up for the challenge HERE.
