Quote: Air pollution is turning Mother Nature prematurely gray. Irv KupcinetAir is inseparable from the health of natural resources.
Poor air quality decreases visibility, acidifies or disrupts the nutrient balance in lakes and streams, injures plant and animal communities, and harms human health.
Air pollutants are categorized as:
Primary, or those that come from sources such as industrial facilities, automobiles, and forest fires; and
Secondary, or when primary pollutants undergo chemical reactions in the atmosphere. Those pollutants in the air can come from long distances.
