More short quotes about pollution:
"Government cannot close its eyes to the pollution of waters, to the erosion of soil, to the slashing of forests any more than it can close its eyes to the need for slum clearance and schools."
Franklin D. Roosevelt
"By using energy more efficiently in your daily activities, you'll not only reduce GHG emissions but also other emissions that contribute to air pollution and smog."

"It isn't pollution that's harming the environment. It's the impurities in our air and water that are doing it."
"Make a list, and make one trip do rather than 5 trips. Every time you drive your car, you are contributing to air pollution."
"Whether or not life exists elsewhere in the universe, all we know now is that here on Earth, life is both utterly amazing and utterly endangered. That is why I believe that nobody is really more pro-life than an environmentalist."
T. A. Barron
"If 25 years ago I had said that the majority of Canadians would be drinking bottled water today, you would have laughed. If I were to say now that we may have to breathe bottled air in 25 years if we dont fundamentally change the way our society works, would you laugh? And if we cant breathe the air, does it really matter whether the government of the day is right or left?"
"There's so much pollution in the air now that if it weren't for our lungs there'd be no place to put it all."
"For us, living in the country was more than a dream come true. It was the result of a long-term goal to say goodbye to noise pollution from sirens, vehicles, and neighbours so close you could literally reach out and touch them."
