This exercise is designed to introduce students to the idea that human activities can alter the chemistry or gaseous composition of the atmosphere, resulting in a variety of impacts on human health and the environment. Discussion topics include indoor pollution and local (point- or non-point source) pollution. Students will perform an activity in which they use an online resource from the Environnmental Protection Agency (EPA) to research point-source polluters in the area where they live. They will identify facility names, addresses, potential environmental concerns, generate maps showing the locations of these sources, and answer questions about the information they uncover.
