THE COST OF AIR POLLUTION DAMAGES A STATUS REPORT

STUDIES HAVE ESTIMATED THE COST OF AIR POLLUTION FOR EFFECTS ON HEALTH, VEGETATION, MATERIALS, RESIDENTIAL PROPERTY VALUE, SOILING, AND AESTHETICS. THE NATIONAL TOTAL COSTS WERE DEVELOPED FOR 1968 AS 16.1 BILLION DOLLARS. THE COST OF EACH EFFECT WAS DISTRIBUTED AMONG THE SEVERAL POLLUTANTS CONSIDERED RESPONSIBLE FOR THE EFFECT ACCORDING TO THEIR RELATIVE EMISSIONS. CONSIDERING ALL FACTORS, THE 19.1 BILLION DOLLARS NATIONAL TOTAL ANNUAL COSTS OF AIR POLLUTION IS BELIEVED TO BE A REASONABLE, CONSERVATIVE ESTIMATE.
