Scientists are using existing technologies to help decrease our collective nitrogen emissions, but we each have a role to play:
- Reduce your emissions: Drive less, and slow down. Ammonia and NOx emissions increase exponentially with speed–so driving the speed limit makes environmental sense.
- Support local organizations working to protect these natural resources, including Friends of Edgewood and the San Mateo County Parks and Recreation Foundation (supportparks.org)
- Stand strong for environmental protections, including the Endangered Species Act.
- Support efforts to regulate nitrogen pollution.
