The Tale of Lucy Lake

Pollution Travels Long Distances

The wind can blow pollution from power plants, cars, and trucks over long distances and can affect places far away from where this pollution is made. A lot of the sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides found in the rain and snow along the East Coast of the United States are produced in midwestern states that burn fossil fuels.
