    We in California have some of the strictest pollution laws in the country, but the Democrats here don't think about the water shortage, or overpopulating the state with more illegals, and they wonder why the place is turning to liquid crap before their eyes.

    WHAT IS OZONE?
    Ozone, a gas, is a form of oxygen. In the Earth's upper atmosphere ozone plays an important and beneficial role by providing a shield from the sun's ultraviolet rays. Ozone at ground level is a harmful air pollutant.
    WHAT CAUSES OZONE POLLUTION?
    Tailpipe emissions from automobile traffic are the main contributors to ozone pollution. Ozone pollution is created when certain chemicals in auto emissions interact with heat and sunlight. Emissions from certain manufacturing operations also contribute to ozone pollution.

    IS OZONE HARMFUL?
    Ground-level ozone is a public health concern. Prolonged exposure to low-level ozone concentra- tions is as harmful to human health as exposure to higher levels for shorter durations. It inflames lung tis- sues and can cause coughing, chest pains, and asthma.
    Children are most at risk from exposure to ozone because they play and exercise outdoors during the months ozone concentrations are highest. The elderly are also susceptible.

    Everybody cut the crap please. Everybody knows the two main sources of them worst pollutions in this world fossil fuel, and nuclear power. With the use of those extremely filthy deadly sources of power are ruining this whole world not just a city not to mention that are ozone layer is gone at the Arctic Circle or anartica without that protection the Direct solar radiation is melting the ice cap at an unprecedented rate. Our ozone layer is stretched 2 less than a quarter of an inch thick we're not missing altogether like our polls there are even small holes around and it work filters through now when it's gone so are we. Thank you powerful industrialist you have done what you fulfilled to do in ruin this planet. Bravo magnificent. Hope I didn't scare anyone.
