It is the mission of GASP to clean up the Birmingham area’s air. We strive to reduce air pollution, educate the public on the health risks associated with poor air quality and encourage the community’s leaders to serve as role models for clean air and clean energy production. In 2011, the Birmingham area was ranked as one of the most polluted cities in the South for air quality. It was also ranked the 8th worst in the nation. GASP is a community of individuals attacking this problem, armed with understanding and undaunted determination.
