So when there is a day of zero economic activity, pollution is much lower... but not for long. The story is misleading because over the long term, mobility is a tremendous factor in economic growth. And the money created through a booming economy allows rich countries to clean the air through expensive environmental laws (such as auto and power plant emissions controls). This is why car-friendly U.S.A. has cleaner air than Europe and Asia. (There are localized exceptions). Mobility also leads to less costly freight deliveries and more consumer choices for purchases.
