"The physical aspects of air pollution and its effects on society is the theme of this unit. A teacher would be free to approach the topic from several directions. They are speaking out and asking countless questions. In many ways the environment has been damaged beyond repair. Others may prefer to emphasize the functional approach because in most regions where air pollution is considered a problem, a pollutant coexists with other pollutants and there is a continual evolution of the nature of the atmosphere through chemical reactions."
