About Ryan Jacob CAE
California has always been home to Ryan Jacob, CAE advocate. The state, he says, has some of the most amazing nature parks in the country, and arguably, the world. So, when it came time for him to apply for college, he never even considered moving to another state. Luckily, Ryan Jacob got into the University of California – Berkeley. Being a Clean Air Engineering (CAE) advocate, Ryan Jacob decided to major in Chemical Engineering with a focus on Environmental Control. While Ryan Jacob, CAE supporter, has learned quite a lot about environmental control already in the two years that he’s been at university, he particularly enjoys (and finds useful) the information he’s learned so far from his course on Science and Engineering of Sustainable Energy.
He knows that there’s still so much for him to learn and he fully intends to make the most of his time at university so he can get the education that he needs—education that will allow him to step out into the world armed with the knowledge to help the environment. For Ryan Jacob, CAE advocate, we all need to do our own share in improving air quality and helping the environment if we want to give future generations the chance to live in a thriving, supportive planet. The time to act is now, Ryan Jacob, CAE supporter, says; the longer we delay taking action, the harder it will be to clean up the air and the environment, he strongly adds.
What greatly saddens Ryan Jacob, CAE enthusiast, is that air pollution is present right in his own backyard. Did you know that seven out of the ten cities in the country with the worst air quality are in California? They are the following:
- Los Angeles-Long Beach
- El Centro
- San Jose-San Francisco-Oakland
It’s disheartening to learn that in a country deemed as “first world,” and a country considered one of the richest and most advanced countries in the world, air quality is so poor that cities have been given the “distinction” of being the worst in terms of pollution, says Ryan Jacob, CAE advocate. Growing up, Ryan Jacob always read up on regions and countries in the world struggling with poor air quality, and the effects of living in a place where air quality is so bad that residents, especially children, develop lung and even cardiovascular diseases. Little did he know that right in his own backyard are cities with the worst air pollution as well!
This alone is proof that something needs to be done, and we all must act fast if we want to give the younger generation the chance to thrive and grow, without being worried about health problems, particularly respiratory health issues that can be debilitating and even fatal.
