Ozone is a major component of smog.
In this article, we will examine what ozone is, how it is produced, what health hazards it poses and what you can do to reduce ozone pollution. Ozone is a molecule of three oxygen atoms bound together ( O ). It is unstable and highly reactive. Ozone is used as a bleach, a deodorizing agent, and a sterilization agent for air and drinking water. At low concentrations, it is toxic.

Environmental Issues: Pollution
Pollution can take many forms. The air we breathe, the water we drink, the ground where we grow our food, and even the increasing noise we hear every day—all contribute to health problems and a lower quality of life. Find out about the environment issues of pollution, what’s being done on a global level, and what you can do in your community. Ozone Depletion (6) Water Pollution (4) Smog FAQ Cross-Border Pollution: A Growing International Problem Cross-border pollution is a serious environmental problem that often frustrates national solutions. As pollution from one nation contaminates the air and water of another, it creates a dilemma for both and leaves local communities with few real options. Litter Trashes the Environment Litter is more than an eyesore on city streets and alongside highways. Litter pollutes waterways and leaches toxic chemicals into soil and groundwater as it breaks down. Most litter begins with a careless or thoughtless act by a single person who tosses away a cigarette butt or an empty soda can, which means there is a lot you can do to prevent litter. Light Pollution Raises Risk of Breast Cancer Forget romantic songs about the beautiful city lights. Light pollution, defined as excess light at night, increases women's risk of breast cancer significantly, as well as wasting energy and disrupting the migration patterns and breeding cycles of many birds and animals.

Biofuels affect rice production
I have been saying for a long time that no matter the cost, we have to shift to alternate energy so that we do not pollute the environment and stop climate change.However in this case I will make an exception. The use of crops such as rice to create biofuels and ethanol has caused a great pickle worldwide. The prices of rice have gone up rapidly as production has been shifted from providing food to the people to fuel in a car. The use of biofuel has increased moderately especially with fuel pumps popping up. I saw recently that USA uses about 135 million gallons of fuel annually. It has become such a concern with rising fuel prices that alternate fuel has become criteria number one.

Ocean Pollution

More than 60 million gallons of oil enter the oceans every year, but it's not reported on the news. That's because this oil seeps from oil-bearing rock layers into the ocean as part of a natural process. When tankers running aground spill oil, that's news, and currently these accidents deposit about 37 million gallons of oil into the ocean every year.

When it comes to mixing oil and water, oceans suffer from far more than an occasional devastating spill. Disasters make headlines, but hundreds of millions of gallons of oil quietly end up in the seas every year, mostly from non-accidental sources

Toxic Materials
Toxic Wastes

Metals and slowly degrading chemicals threaten inland and coastal waters. Toxic materials settle into sea-floor sediments where they accumulate as hazards to organisms that live in and feed on bottom muds. Eventually, long-lasting chemicals may enter the food web and contaminate the fish and shellfish we eat.

Welcome to Air Pollution: What's the Solution? an educational project for students, grades 6 - 12, that uses online real time data to guide student discovery of the science behind the causes and effects of outdoor air pollution. Through this project, students will focus on outdoor air pollution; what it is, what factors contribute to its formation and the health effects from breathing polluted air. Students will use data and animated maps from the Internet and monitor for the presence of air pollution. Students are challenged to think critically and creatively about the problems surrounding air pollution. By the end of this project, students will be able to:
  • Describe what air pollutants are, when and how outdoor air pollution is formed, and what the health effects are from breathing polluted air. Read the Environmental Protection Agency's Air Quality Index (AQI) chart, record weather data, and determine the presence of air pollutants. Create graphs to help visualize or recognize trends. Predict when ground level ozone may occur.

    Changes on the Horizon As IDA reaches its landmark 20th anniversary we will look back to see the progress and changes that our work has brought to the world. IDA continues to grow ever more prominent in the world of light pollution prevention. We have many people to thank for much of this success. However, after a great deal of thought and planning, a couple of key supporters have decided that the 20th Anniversary is an excellent moment to pass the torch on to the next generation. Dr. David L. Crawford, co-founder and Executive Director of IDA for the past twenty years, will begin his retirement in June of 2008. There are not enough words to capture the magnitude of his contribution to IDA and the issues of light pollution. His legacy will continue for many more years than his tenure. Additionally, Robert [Bob] Gent, the President of the Board of Directors, has selflessly worked for the past twelve years at IDA as a full-time volunteer and Board member. Bob gave freely of his time and talent and will be greatly missed for his knowledge, dedication, and willingness to help in any way. He has now decided to pursue his passion for astronomy and travel with his wife, Terrie.

A: There are many, especially toxins that come from industrial and municipal wastewaters, runoff from farms and urban areas, and the erosion of soils. These toxins can include naturally-occurring chemicals that are present in higher concentrations because of human activities as well as new, man-made compounds such as DDT. Other pollutants include biostimulants from sewage and industrial wastes; oil from runoffs, accidental spills, and oil and gas production; sediments from erosion caused by farming, forestry, mining, and development; plastics and other debris from ships, fishing nets, and containers; thermal pollution from the cooling water that comes from power and industrial plants; human pathogens from sewage, urban runoff, and livestock; and finally, alien species that are introduced into a habitat by ships. Q: That's a lot of pollutants. What are the most important?

EPA toughens requirements for cutting smog
New rules too much, says industry; it's not enough, say scientists
Adam Rountree / AP
Smog covers midtown Manhattan in New York on July 10. New rules unveiled Wednesday by the Environmental Protection Agency are intended to reduce ozone, a key component in smog.
WASHINGTON - The air in hundreds of U.S. counties is simply too dirty to breathe, the government said Wednesday, ordering a multibillion-dollar expansion of efforts to clean up smog in cities and towns nationwide. The Environmental Protection Agency announced it was tightening the amount of ozone, a key component of smog, that will be allowed in the air. But the lower standard still falls short of what most health experts say is needed to significantly reduce heart and asthma attacks from breathing smog-clogged air. EPA Administrator Stephen Johnson called the new limits "the most stringent standards ever," and he said they will require 345 counties — out of more than 700 that are monitored — to make air quality improvements because they now have dirtier air than is healthy to breathe. Johnson said that state and local officials have considerable time to meet the requirements — as much as 20 years for some that have the most serious pollution problems. The EPA estimates that by 2020 the number of counties failing to meet the new health standard will drop to about 28.
