ABSTRACT
The article discusses the impossibility of formulating advanced air quality standards for 2050 in the U.S. It revealed that current regulations require fast compliance with air-quality standards and cities often leave such benchmark considerations out of long-term development plans. Such omissions occur because predicting air quality 25 to 50 years in advance is difficult. Some of the factors that are to be considered in designing such policy includes population and economic growth, changes in social and cultural norms, advances in technology and the whims of local, national and global politics. It is suggested that a more reasonable method should be used in attaining air quality in the far-off future.
