Automobiles like these are around the world everyday, and their exhaust destroys
our air everyday.
Our environment is a major aspect of our life today. Many of us don't take our
Earth seriously and think that as long as pollution doesn't hurt them they can
go ahead and throw garbage on the ground or spill oil down the drain. Well to
many people have that theory and they are killing off our Earth and also
physically harming themselves from the air they breath and the water they swim
in. Our Earth is fragile like a human and people don't know. There are many
different types of environmental pollution (e.g. Water, air, atmospheric.)
Scientists believe that all cities with populations exceeding 50,000
have some degree of air pollution. Burning garbage in open dumps causes air
pollution, and also it smells pretty bad. Air pollution comes from many
different sources. One of the major sources is carbon monoxide which manly comes
from automobiles, but also burning of fossil fuels, CFCs etc. Air pollution does
not leave the Earth it all gets trapped up in the atmosphere. This doesn't
bother most people, and they think that it will not harm them. People burn down
forests and people burn fossil fuels, and CFCs from aerosols. Every bit of this
harms our atmosphere. Factories and transportation depend on huge amounts of
fuel billions of tons of coal and oil are consumed around the world every year.
When these fuels burn they introduce smoke and other, less visible, by-products
into the atmosphere. Although wind and rain occasionally wash away the smoke
given off by power plants and automobiles, the cumulative effect of air
pollution poses a grave threat to humans and the environment. A big example of
smog is LA you can see the smog just hovering above the city. I don't think any
human alive should be subject to that kind of environment. Scientists believe
that all cities with populations exceeding 50,000 have some... [continues]
