Over the years I have been compiling forest health and air pollution
observations and from time to time sharing them with you. As you know, much
of the pollution is produced by the transportation sector. I have been most
alarmed by what I have seen and by the information I have gathered. Links
to some of this information can be found by going to
A number of people have recently asked who else was observing similar air
pollution and forest health impacts, so I pulled together a Web page titled
Air Pollution and Forest Health Notes from Other Places and put it up on the
web at http://www.biketrack.com/air_pollution_notes_from_other_places.htm .
This is the first time I have tried to assemble an overview of notes onto
one Web page and when it all came together, even I was shocked by how
pervasive and serious air pollution is globally.
Please take a close look at the site and forward the address on to anyone
else who may be even the least bit interested. Nothing I can say will
properly convey the urgent need for global action.
If you have any information or ideas you would like to share, please let me
