Outdoor air pollution affects our health and injures our lungs. Several well-known main types of pollution include smog, acid rain, the greenhouse effect, and “holes” in the ozone layer. Each one creates problems and can have serious implications on our health and well-being and that of our planet.
Over the years, our country has worked to reduce air pollutants. Here are some of the things we have accomplished:
•America has decreased the release of air pollutants by 50 million tons plus, since 1970.
•The presence of lead in our Nations air has decreased by 96 percent from the mid-1970s levels.
•There has been a 43 percent drop of days where air pollution exceeded allowable levels between 1980 and 1999.
•Air pollution in the United States has dramatically decreased over the last three decades as a result of the combined efforts of individuals, industry and government.
•It would take 20 of today’s vehicles to produe the same amount of air pollution as one 1960 model vehile produced.
We still have a lot of work ahead!!! We must all work together for the health of our planet and our future.
