Pitch

Have you ever wondered what comes out of the back of a car? What is in that gray cloud of smoke that appears whenever you start the vehicle?


Description

Summary

Carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide are extremely dangerous chemicals that rip holes in the layer of ozone in our atmosphere that protects us from extremely harmful UV rays from the sun. Who would have thought that somthing we come across as often as we start our car would be helping to cause conditions such as cataracts and skin cancer. Picture UV rays as an army, laying siege on a country just to kill innocent citizens for fun. The opposing army, the ozone, will protect their families, but their families are stabbing them in the back as they fight without realizing it. The ozone isn't going to be able to protect us from the UV rays anymore if its dead, is it.
