Air Pollution

Burning fossil fuels makes air pollution, which dirties our air. Many people get sick from air pollution and develop asthma, (pronounced AZ-muh) which is a disease that makes it very difficult to breathe. In some cities like Los Angeles and New York, the air pollution is so bad sometimes that it turns the air brown and gives it a sour smell.
