Week 2 interactive exercise and test

The ability to monitor and track air pollution is vital in being able to understand how much is coming from where, how we can reduce it and mitigate its negative effects. Pollution.org provides an interactive world map with data on air, water and soil pollution globally. Sources are credible, government approved data-sets and updated on a regular basis.
