"Air pollution needs to be taken seriously. Factories and exhaust pipes spew out particulate matter and gases that lead to around 6.5 million deaths a year, according to a report from the International Energy Agency.
The air quality and pollution in some parts of Oslo have been so bad on occasion that the municipality has introduced diesel bans on the worst days.
But lots of cars, trailers and buses run on highways and county roads, spreading pollution across Norway. Does the pollution harm the plants and get into our food?
Many types of pollution
CO2 has come to symbolize vehicle traffic emissions, and is considered the big culprit when we talk about global warming and man-made climate change…"

I hate it when CO2 from cars gets into our food.
We have rosemary plants growing right next to the driveway. We use that in our cooking all the time. So far no trouble, but they're not in a position to get direct car exhaust anyway.
