    Nitrogen oxides are a significant component of pollution, and are emitted from many industrial sources and automobiles.  Nitrogen oxides are also a precursor to ground-level ozone.

    Methane, Chlorine, CFC’s, Sulfur Oxides, Benzene, Hydrochloric Acid, Hydrogen Fluoride, Solids (like ash, or smoke, also called Matter Particulates) … don’t want to have to be the guy who breaks it to you (but we’re sorta screwed, because) the list goes on and on… it’s freakin’ 188 items long… that’s scary!  I’d suggest reading “The World Without Us” by Allen Weisman to get a good picture of how screwed up out atmosphere and oceans really are:
