Excess carbon: Since industrial pollution of air and water is connected to negative effects on air quality directly and weather patterns more broadly (heated oceans), human health is the direct target of excess carbon production.
Recall images of Chinese citizens wearing face masks on the street or sad flotilla of dead fish. The shame of this abuse is the sale of bottled mountain air in urban industrial areas.
