… but we have pollution. At least this is the conclusion from the latest Seattle Times article.

Environmentalists hooted when Ronald Reagan claimed — wrongly — that trees produce more pollution than cars.
But right now, the biggest single source of air pollution in Washington isn’t a power plant, pulp mill or anything else created by man.

It’s a volcano.

Since Mount St. Helens started erupting in early October, it has been pumping out between 50 and 250 tons a day of sulfur dioxide, the lung-stinging gas that causes acid rain and contributes to haze.
