Report: Pollution destroying pre-Aztec Mexican ruinsBreaking News
Air pollution specialist Humberto Bravo said acid levels in the air around El Tajin, in oil producing Veracruz state, were among the highest in Mexico.
El Tajin's architecture is famous for intricate reliefs, many depicting an ancient Mesoamerican ball game sometimes compared to basketball.
"If nothing is done, within 10, 20 or 100 years, the hieroglyphics will disappear," said Bravo, from Mexico's UNAM university.

Chances are likely that there were pre-pre-Aztec ruins that gave in to time and decay, perhaps even pre-pre-pre-Aztec ruins. Record what is there by all means possible and move on. Time and decay will also overtake the records as well as whatever else is here now and in the future. We travel on the dust of people and things, we burn the remains of creatures and things unknown to produce energy, all things are impermanent.
