Noelle Mason September 19, 2021

Jeffrey Pierce, a professor at Colorado State University's department of atmospheric science, explained that nitrogen oxide from car pollution mixes with volatile organic compounds leaked from the oil and gas industry in Colorado on hot days, creating the ozone we experience in Fort Collins.
