Air pollution: Dirty old birds can show changes in air pollution over last 135 years – TomoNews

CHICAGO — Researchers analyzed the amount of soot on birds in museums from Rust Belt cities to track air pollution over the last 135 years.

A new paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences shows the discoloration of birds in museum collections can be used to estimate the amount of black carbon air over time, Science Daily reported.

Researchers from The Field Museum and the University of Chicago sampled over a thousand birds collected over the last 135 years to find out and quantify the effects of soot in the air in Rust Belt cities like Chicago, Detroit and Pittsburgh.

To track changes in sootiness, the scientists photographed the birds and measured the light reflected off of them.

They found that older birds were dirtier and new birds were cleaner. The team discovered that soot on birds closely tracks the use of coal over time.

Researchers also pointed out that even though newer birds are cleaner, it doesn’t necessarily mean U.S. air is less polluted. Many of the pollutants released into the atmosphere today aren’t as easily tracked as soot.

Important note from Parrot Post:

Bringing a parrot into your family is a lifetime commitment, similar to having a human child. Far too many parrots are abused, given away, or abandoned not long after they are purchased, by people who haven’t done their research and aren’t prepared for all the work it really takes to live with a bird. Many people buy these birds on a whim just because they’ve seen other birds who look cute – but every bird has his/her own individual personality, just like humans do!!

Living with and caring for a parrot takes a TON of work. Constant noise, cleaning, giving up on having nights out or vacations, spending a lot of money on quality food, toys, vet bills… it will be like having a toddler for the next 20-80 years or more. A toddler who may not act cute all the time and who may bite you hard, destroy your things, and drive you crazy – are you ready for that, and would you still be capable of forgiving and loving them no matter what, day after day for the rest of his/her life?

RESEARCH and volunteer at a parrot rescue or sanctuary so you can get to know actual parrots first hand before considering adopting one. DON’T BUY. Do NOT support the pet industry which breeds and sells animals for profit and which keeps this cycle of cruelty going toward these intelligent, beautiful beings.
