Each one of us is knowingly contributing to air pollution. We take air and air quality for granted like we do many other aspects of our natural environment. We are all forthcoming in identifying the problem and its effects, but there is no acknowledgement of our personal contribution to it. There's a complete absence of a proactive stance in working towards addressing it. We are all seeking greener pastures elsewhere; we do not take responsibility of where we are.
