Air Pollution. Teachers Clearinghouse for Science and Society Education Supplement.
Van Vranken, Nancy S., Ed.
To the casual observer, it seems improbable that human beings could produce a global environmental change. However, collective human activities have taxed the Earth's recuperative powers to their limit. The conflict of a global economy and the ecological support system make it difficult to change current conditions. Students should be made aware that there are actions they can take that will slow the rate of environmental decay. This publication is designed to provide teachers with sources of information to teach about air pollution. Two brief articles discuss greenhouse gasses, chlorofluorocarbons, climate change, and air quality. Resources listed include: (1) 61 organizations; (2) 80 journal articles; (3) 27 pamphlets; (4) 38 books; (5) 9 media materials; and (6) 2 software packages. (CW)
