Trains, Trucks, and Pollution

Ships, planes, trucks, and trains are used to transport, or move, our food. These forms of transportation all contribute to pollution and global warming. Global warming is what happens when we put too much pollution into the air from burning fossil fuels like gasoline, oil and coal. This pollution traps heat from the sun, warms up the planet, and makes our weather change in serious ways. The farther our food travels, the more pollution gets put into our air.
