There is no way to put a value on clean air. The health of most living creatures out of the water depend on it. Our existence and our future depend on it. There is no longer anyplace on the earth that man’s air pollution hasn’t reached.
For me personally I’ve watched my mother’s health dwindle, she can’t go into almost any city because of the air pollution, she can’t be near a busy highway or near certain factories. I myself have asthma, at times it is a battle to do anything that is a strain to my lungs. I truly believe much of my mother’s and my conditions are heavily affected by the air we breath.
And of course there is our children and grand children and on and on. What about them? What quality of air will they breath? We as a nation have made good efforts to clean our air and abate pollution but I know there is much more we can do.
