Garry Rogers's curator insight, February 27, 2015 1:33 PM

Yes.  This is a fight we've been loosing for 40 years.  It's time to try harder.  Perhaps our President would help?

Ismail marboul's curator insight, October 8, 2016 11:05 AM

my insight is that countries should take in to consideration the effects of air pollution around the world and what they can do to prevent them as the cause of climate change can also link to the increase in air pollution in the world.a huge cause of this is human activities.They have been highlighted as the major causes of air pollution, especially in the cities. To support a larger population, there's a need for energy production, transportation, and industries, resulting in the emission of harmful chemicals into the atmosphere. A list of the human causes of air pollution includes vehicles, domestic smoke and heating, aircraft pollution, outdoor fires, and incineration of waste. To reduce the problems of air pollution, people should be more aware of their actions in these areas.
