Pressure and Pollution
Is it possible that over the years, humans have effected
the atmosphere that suurounds us with all of their pollutants and other
technology. As a result of this could the atmospheric pressure ever
change? Would it change that much that we would be affected by it?
Atmospheric pressure varies significantly on the short term with
changes in air masses, low and high pressure systems, etc. It
is unlikely that man has had any measurable effect on average
atmospheric pressure through his activities.
