We support the return of clean air to Lake Tahoe and surrounding Sierra Nevada valley and foothill communities

Welcome to the Tahoe Sierra Clean Air Coalition website. We are a coalition of individuals and families dedicated to restoring pristine air quality to Lake Tahoe and Sierra Nevada mountain, valley and foothill communities. We support the Tahoe Blue Sky Initiative… for clean air, for life.

Agency created “managed” burns, prescribed burns and pile burns unleash billions of tons of particulate matter, carbon, including carbon black, phosphorus, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, mercury, PM1, PM2.5, PM10 and other toxic chemicals heating up our atmosphere and harming us all. These dangerous particles eventually find their way into our lungs, affecting our children, communities, the ozone, wildlife, and snowmelts. Toxic particulate matter can contribute to pollution and algae growth in our lakes.

It’s In The Numbers!

If the sky isn’t blue, the lake isn’t blue

Annual US Park visitors denied spectacular views of our National Parks due to air pollution per the US EPA.
We believe much of this is caused by managed burns.
