Definition- car exhaust comes from burning coal and oil, gasoline, comes from a power plant.

Effects- smog, green house effect, depletes ozone, effects lower parts of food chain, effects the air we breathe, effect water.

Solution- none.



4.)Car Exhaust

Definition- NOX, SO, fog, acid rain, emissions, smog.

Effects- smog, plus acid water harms plants, harms fish. (Dead Lakes).

Solution- "clear skies", legislation.



6.)Industrial E.

Definition- from burning coal and oil. CO2, SO, NO.

Effects- smog.

Solution- lower air pollution.



7.)Acid Rain

Definition- power plants, SOX + water = sulfuric acid, NOX + water = hitric acid.

Effects- sulfuric acid, hitric acid, building decay, asthma and bronchitis.

Solution- limit the amount of SO2, lime in soil.




Direction- acid, snow, sleet, hail, fog, smog, CO, NOX, SO, sunlight, nitrogen oxide, nitric oxide.

Effect- harms leaves, plants die, trees die, makes asthmatics sick, harms all plants and our lungs, holes in the ozone lets ultraviolet rays in.

Solution- none.




Definition- carried by wind, comes from flowers.
