Taking Action to Reduce Air Pollution!

What are the top three ways Nova Scotians contribute to pollutants to the air?

  1. We use electricity made by burning fossil fuels, especially coal
  2. We travel by car, truck, and other fuel-burning vehicles
  3. We heat our homes-oil furnaces, woodstoves, and electric heaters

You can change your behavior to help cut back on air pollution. This will help human health, the environment, and probably your wallet.
