and overall have very little effect on the weather patterns of a wider
Some toxic pollutants remain in the local area, or are only
concentrated enough to have noticeable effects in the local area.
However, the effect of greenhouse gases is global. The effects of
global warming are visible all over the world.
I just got this link.
