What causes Air Pollution?

Air pollution is caused by a variety of things. The earth is pretty good at cleaning the air by itself. However, air pollution has grown so much, the earth can no longer clean all of it. This has started to have bad effects on the environment such as acid rain, smog and a lot of different health problems.

How do we prevent even more air pollution?

Cutting down on trips by car can help cut vehicle air pollution. With gasoline prices being so high recently, many people have chosen to go less distance for their summer. You can also make sure to buy non-toxic cleaning products and paint. Support action for unhealthy air by writing to your local newspaper. It would also be worth your while to let your elected representatives know that you support the clean air act.
