What is SO2 and what does it do?

SO2 - Sulphar Dioxide. Produced by burning fossil fuels (coal and oil) at power stations. Volcanos produce their fare share!! When its mixed with rain it makes Acid rain. Yet again, its not good for asthma sufferers or people with breathing problems. It can irritate your eyes and lungs.

You can ...

Reduce the demand on power stations by using less electricity. Watch less TV!! Use Energy saving light bulbs. Unplug unused phone chargers and other adaptors. Relocate the fridge away from the oven! (Believe it or not, a full fridge will use less energy then an empty one! So as it empties, fill it with old newspapers!!)
