The graph shows the change in energy-related emissions of ozone precursors (NOx, NMVOC, CO and CH4) each weighted by an ozone formation factor prior to aggregation to represent their respective ozone forming potentials. The relative impact of the combined contribution of NOx, NMVOC, CO and CH4 to ozone formation can be assessed based on their tropospheric ozone forming potentials (TOFP): nitrogen oxides 1.22, non-methane volatile organic compounds 1.0, carbon monoxide 0.11 and methane 0.014 (de Leeuw 2002).

Think twice before buying more toys for your children.
Many of them are used only very shortly and then thrown away. Go for high-quality, long-lasting toys that can be used by several generations of children. Selling old toys on a flea market can give your toys a second life and can be much fun for you and the kids.
