“The health effects of air pollution imperil human lives. This fact is well-documented.”
— Eddie Bernice Johnson
Air is a part of all of our lives. Without clean air, nothing we know of can
exist. The debate over clean air, it’s regulations, their teammates and
opposition, and the economic factors coming into play into this ever-more

pollution is like a time-bomb waiting to explode, and the end draws nearer and
nearer. We cannot look back on our world after we have destroyed it and comment
on things we should have done differently.
