Bad news

15 years ago NASA launched a satellite to measure Earth and it shows explicitly the terrible work the EPA has done. First, here’s a picture of the amount of nitrogen dioxide in the US (Credit:

You might be thinking that this is good news since nitrogen dioxide is a poison, but since this is a result of policies set by the EPA it must be bad news.
The second picture looks at the level of carbon monoxide over the globe (Credit: NASA’s Earth Observatory):

Scientists have found that levels have been dropping at a rate of 1% per year since 2000. You might again think this is good news since carbon monoxide is one of the main ingredients in smog and is also a poison, but again this has come about mostly from government regulations so must be bad.
