  3. 3. Types of Pollution <ul><li>Primary Air Pollutants </li></ul><ul><ul><li>enter the atmosphere directly from a source (such as smokestacks) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Secondary Air Pollutants </li></ul><ul><ul><li>formed after a chemical reaction takes place between a primary pollutant and other components of air (such as water vapor) </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Sources of Pollution… <ul><li>Transportation (exhaust from automobiles, boats, planes) is an example of a human generated source pollution </li></ul><ul><li>Volcanic erosion is an example of a natural source of air pollution </li></ul>
  5. 5. Examples of Natural Pollutants <ul><li>Wildfires </li></ul><ul><li>Hot springs </li></ul><ul><li>Cattle </li></ul><ul><li>Pine trees </li></ul>

  10. 11. Interesting Facts <ul><li>“ Every year, one American produces over 3,85 pounds of hazardous waste.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Over 80% of items in landfills are recyclable, but they’re not.” </li></ul><ul><li>“ Each year, factories spew 3 million tons of toxic chemicals into the air, land, and water.” </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.dosomething.org/tipsandtools/11-facts-about-pollution </li></ul>
