Hazardous Effects of Air Pollution

The severity of air pollution is beginning to become one of the top situations. Air pollution occurs what gases, dust particles, fumes or smoke are all introduced into the atmosphere in a way that is harmful to living things such as us humans, animals and plant life. Air pollution has a lot to do with with human actions; this is in relation to the emissions from industries and manufacturing activities, burning of fossil fuels (driving cars) and household and farming chemicals. One of the disturbing effects of pollution is something called acidification. Sometimes, when an air pollutant, such as sulfuric acid combines with the water droplets that make up clouds, the water droplets become acidic, forming acid rain. When acid rain falls over an area, it could potentially kill trees and harm the lives of the animals, fish, and other wildlife. It even can kill the leaves on innocent plants.One simple fix would take true dedication, and that would be watching your use of transportation. Rather than driving your car everywhere, take advantage of the bus systems, a train maybe, or even better, your own two feet. Less cars mean less fumes leading to less air pollution.

  1. The last couple of sentences on what we can do better is a great addition. While individual transportation is not the majority of pollutants, it is something that we can control and relying more on people-power (walking, biking, etc.) not only improves air quality but also our personal health.
