Chemicals pumped into the air by fossil fuels create smog-forming chlorine atoms that boost ozone levels, researchers in California said. Under extreme circumstances, the chemicals could account for nearly half of California's state-set limits on outdoor air pollution, scientists at the University of California, Irvine, said Monday in a release. We should be monitoring it and incorporating it into atmospheric models, chemistry professor Barbara Finlayson-Pitts said. We still don't really...
