Carbon Monoxide Poisoning and the Environment
Carbon monoxide is an odorless, colorless and toxic gas. Because it is impossible to see, taste or smell the toxic fumes, CO can kill you before you are aware it is in your home. CO is found in fires and combustion fumes, such as those made by cars and trucks, portable generators, stoves, gas ranges, and heating systems. As the CO fills an enclosed environment, it can poison an individual.
