Analysis shows, with or without global warming, ozone is declining and will continue to do so. EPA’s ozone modeling exaggerates both future ozone levels and the absolute effect of climate change on future ozone levels, regardless, however, ozone at current, historically low levels is not a significant human health concern. Present ozone concentrations do not threaten public health.
