Essay and Science lesson
"What Air Is" by Suzanna Ray
When writing about air, I must take care to not be too scientific. To not scare you but to make you aware that air is comprised of gases, two of which are necessary for life upon this planet. 

Air is mostly space filled with things light enough to float in it, like water vapor, dust, smoke and ashes; which combine to make smog* that passes for air, in many places. 

Some gases are lighter than others and so float like cream on top of milk. Some gases are toxic, some lethal, some neutral and some life  giving. Some gases illuminate, some darken.

There is a list below with the percentages of detectable amounts now found In our atmosphere,
which is, only one of the layers of air.


Author Notes
*I use poetic license to use the words smoke and ashes to describe what scientists call suspended particulates.

The following list was complied by the North Carolina Climate
Gases marked with*** are of particular concern to the scientists there

Nitrogen. 78.08
Oxygen. 20.95
*** Water - .04
*** Carbon dioxide. .0360 *** Ozone. .000004
Argon .93
Neon. .0018
Helium. .0005
*** Methane .00017
Hydrogen. .00005
*** Nitrous Oxide. .000004
