There are numerous smoke pollution regulations all over the U.S.A. but smoke pollution isn’t something we think of as being a huge problem here. And in all honesty, it’s not the biggest environmental issue at all. But what would happen if all of the regulations that keep smoke pollution under control didn’t exist? For a really striking picture of what that looks like, check out this article on Treehugger, where you can see very smokey pictures of pre-smoke regulation Pittsburgh in the 1940s.
