The Hazard of Fossil Fuel Particulates

April 30, 2017

Burning fossil fuels releases significant quantities of carbon dioxide, aggravating climate change. Although it gets less attention these days, combustion also emits volumes of pollutants, which can cause a variety of illnesses (Fischetti , Mark. "The Health Care Burden of Fossil Fuels." Scientific American. N.p., 31 Aug. 2011. Web.). These pollutants are often referred to as Particulate Matter and can come from a variety of sources including construction and combustion activities. The impact on our environment and health are notable.
