Clean air is crucial to the survival of nearly every living organism on the planet. Because of our tendency to burn fossil fuels, use inefficient means of transportation, and utilize methods of industrial production that release large amounts of sulfur and carbon monoxide, our air is in bad shape. More significant than the ‘dirtying’ of the air are the health consequences that derive from it, health consequences which everyone on Earth has to be aware of.
Charlotte has been doing a reasonable job of reducing their air pollutants, but we need to continue our efforts. Success depends on all of us making a concerted effort to conserve this important resource!
