The Delaware Valley and Philadelphia region has one of the worst air pollution problems in the nation. Some of this pollution occurs because of the geography of the area, other pollution comes from industrial and other manmade sources. Regardless, air pollution is a cause of considerable environmental injustice and causes health problems. What are some approaches that could mitigate air pollution?
