Some friends call to ask if you want to go motorboating out on the lake for lunch, or maybe ride around on jet skis all afternoon. Sounds like a lot of fun! You:

[speed boat] 1.You agree to meet your friends at noon.
(0 points) Actually, every little thing does matter. And if you are assuming that "everyone else" will cut back today because it's an Air Quality Advisory day, what's stopping everyone else from thinking the same thing? Your actions DO make a difference, whether good or bad. Take a look at the other options and remember: "It all adds up to cleaner air."

2. Go canoeing instead.
(2 points) This is a great idea! Canoeing is fantastic exercise, and you can actually pay attention to nature. Speedboats rush by so quickly you don't have time to take everything in, and they usually scare the wildlife away. And the best benefit - no pollution! But remember that breathing the air on an Air Quality Advisory day can be harmful, so outside activities are safest in the evening.

3. Go boating after dinner.

(1 point) This is a better choice than riding them in the middle of the day, but it's still not the best one. Motorboats and jet skis ARE fun, but they do produce pollution. In fact, they can produce so much pollution that the chemicals can stick around in the air overnight and get baked into ground level ozone the next day.

On to next question.
