Air Pollution: Is Their a Solution
Sunday, April 18, 2010
When did we first experience air pollutions? Could it have been in the A.D era when cave people built small fires to survive? Or has it become an issue since the early 80`s. No one will be able to specifically say but what we can attest to is that since the A.D era we have contributed several times over to Air Pollution. We risk breathing in dangerous chemicals every time we breathe. What is air pollution? It is defined as all contaminants found in the atmosphere and can came in the form of a gas or particle. It also is found indoors as well as outdoors. Pollutants can get trapped inside buildings causing indoor pollutants to become …show more content…
As long as theses transports run on fuel there will always be an air pollution problem. By not burning things like plastic or using aerosol products we can help prevent some pollutants that are released into the air. These small things can make a big difference over time. Human impact can be positive to the ecosystem and lead to climate changes due to an increase in the atmosphere.
Presently there are many sustainability strategies and solutions that are initiated by the government, various programs and civic groups to help reduce air pollution. Clean Air Acts and the increased use of solar power over the use of coal power. We have also created some electric cars. The pollution caused by gasoline powered cars will become less. We need to look at what happens if precautions like these are not taken life will eventually become nonexistent. That is why currently scientist and car manufacturers are producing vehicles that run off batteries and air.
So many attempts have been made to stop air pollution. The Clean Air Act did not work although it was effective for awhile. The act did make some polluting substances illegal. People however choose not to listen. Solar energy is another form of a solution. This type of energy is a good alternative energy source to coal. This form of energy is expensive but is used throughout the world. However one of the more effective ways of eliminating air pollution is electric cars. The cars
