Just think about all the lead that's being put in the air by old airplanes.
Or the lead that entered the atmosphere when they were dumping it on Chernobyl.

Big issue is older heavy truck diesels, large ships that run on bunker oil, and in countries with a large number of older diesel vehicles without pollution controls.
