    Hi,
    I just want to ask, does it true that lightning can be one of the major source of air pollution?




    Thanks,

    It is a source of ozone and nitrogen oxides but it is not a major source at ground level, cars and industry are much bigger sources. It can have a significant impact on the chemistry of the free troposphere (~3 miles to 10 miles up) but I'm guessing this is not what you mean by "pollution".
