pollution are totally unpreventable. As long as
the American economy turns out immense quan-
tities of missiles, cars, steel skyscrapers, space-
ships, and pointless appliances, then there must
be an immense amount of combustion to pro-
duc.' and run these 'things. As far as we know
now only combustion technology-the burning
of fuel (mostly coal, also oil)-can provide the
tremendous, concentrated energy needed.
But combustion consumes oxygen and releases
staggering amounts of carbon dioxide into the
atmosphere. The CO2 is building up, especially
as more and more plant life (which converts
CO2 back to oxygen) is destroyed. All this CO2
in the air is beginning to cause something known "
as the "greenhouse effect": the light rays from
the sun can get in, but when they reach the
earth and turn into heat rays, the heat rays can't
get out. This tends to heat up the lower levels of
the atmosphere. Nobody really knows what this
is going to do, but most scientists are positive
that it will be something very bad.
What it really comes down to, and what you
rarely hear about, is that on the whole, anti-
pollution devices can only slow down the rate at
which things are getting worse. Being poisoned a
little more slowly is hardly a cure.
Fighting pollution with gadgets is like treating
cancer by lopping off the most obvious tumors,
While expensive devices can make a few pro-
cesses less harmful, every year more factories
send their stacks into the sky and run their
culverts into the rivers. Bulldozers clear off
hundreds of square miles of farmland to be
paved over, and strip mines gouge immense scars
across the country to get ores that feed insati-
able smelters. Countless forests are hacked away
to make more and more paper. Leaky oil wells
are drilled in more dangerous places. And free-
ways expand over the land. The skies get grayer,
the rivers browner, more people get sick, and life
becomes more dreary for those without the
means to escape.
It's not. that the world is dying-it's being Y
killed. The murder can be prevented. But tech-
nology won't cure pollution because the real
cause of pollution is a lot more than just 4 __
