In the first broad-scale estimate of air pollution removal by trees nationwide, U.S. Forest Service scientists and collaborators calculated that trees are saving more than 850 human lives a year and preventing 670,000 incidences of acute respiratory symptoms.
New Green For All Poll Shows Communities of Color View Climate Change as Imminent Threat and Support Carbon Pollution Standards WASHINGTON, July 28, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --
Being unemployed increases your risk of death, but recessions decrease it. Sound paradoxical? Researchers thought so too.
While previous research has investigated the potential impact that climate change and air pollution can have on crops individually, a new study suggests that the interaction between these two risk factors has been overlooked and could drastically increase the threat to the global food supply.

A gas mask is designed to go over the face to protect the wearer from inhaling "airborne pollutants". The mask seals the nose and mouth and many times covers other soft tissues of the face. Some have respirators. Most gas masks provide protection from gaseous and particulate and are often used by riot police and rioters alike. They are also used by graffiti artists to protect them from the fumes. The original design had two small glass eye windows that were thick in order from keeping the...
Arctic haze is a phenomenon that occurs in the atmosphere at high latitudes in the Arctic due to air pollution. What distinguishes Arctic haze from haze found elsewhere, is the ability of its chemical ingredients to endure in the atmosphere for a longer period of time compared to other pollutants. Due to limited snowfall, rain, or turbulent air to displace pollutants from the polar air in the spring, Arctic haze can continue for more than a month in the northern atmosphere. Arctic haze was...
Haze is a type of atmospheric phenomenon where dust, smoke and dry particles in the air obscure the sky's clarity. Haze is created through various activities including farming, traffic pollution,and even wildfires. The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) categorizes the obscuration of the Earth's atmosphere by a list of different types of atmospheric phenomena. One of these is haze. The other classifications are: fog, ice fog, steam fog, mist, smoke, volcanic ash, dust, sand, and snow....
Mist is a phenomenon that consists of small droplets of water suspended in air. Mist occurs as part of a natural weather event or from volcanic activity. Mist is most common in cold air above warm water. Mist also occurs when air is exhaled in cold temperatures or when steam is formed in a sauna. Aerosol cans can create artificial mist if the humidity levels are just right. The one difference between mist and fog is visibility. If visibility is less than 0.62 miles (1 kilometer), the...
