Atmospheric Issue
In our world today our atmosphere is currently in danger. We rely on many different types of technology resources to be able to operate in a single day. In order to obtain these objects we have industries making them, and emitting many harmful pollutants into the atmosphere, which are slowly destroying our environment and creating health problems for everyone around the world. The most important objective right now should be to find alternatives for these industries to become environmentally safe, and use the technology we currently have to reduce the pollution that is being put in our air.
All the gases, dust, and any other harmful contaminants that are released into the air is what air pollution is caused by. Cigarette smoke, burning of plastics, trash, and electrical products are common causes of pollution. Other common and major problems that cause high pollution would be factories, and automobiles within in a city that may also suffer the effect of smog due to the high pollution in the area. Major cites do suffer the most when it comes to pollution in an area. Outdate air conditioners and furnaces can also cause problems for our air, because once they become so old they have a higher risk for creating carbon dioxide, which can be deadly. All of these pollutants can cause several health problems as well.
Forest and plant life is a very important part in our life, and this is simply because they create clean air. The more that our world advances in technology, the more pollution we have. We continually destroy so much nature so that we can build more, and use the land for factories or homes. In the process of all this we are taking from ourselves and what makes clean air and replacing it with products that give us bad air.
In the current years going green has been the thing to do, and the problem of pollution has brought to peoples??™ attention. However only some support this, and to be able to make change it requires the whole human race to take a part in reducing pollution. This is almost impossible because of the time we currently live in. Everyone has to go to work in order to be able to pay bills and eat, which leads to vehicles that create a lot of pollution in the air. The government has implemented a plan to reduce air pollution that is cause by industries. The problem is with this plan though is that industries have next fifty years to cut back on their emissions by eighty percent, and we may not have this long before everything starts to fall apart. Even though some actions have been taken by good people there is simply just not enough to save our air. More actions need to be taken by a lot more of humans in order to make change happen, and to decrease air pollution around the world.
I believe that the first step for these environmental issues is to create a worldwide organization to address the problem we currently have at hand. This organization should consist of researchers, scientists, and experts along with government assistance from all countries. They need to be able to budget, make laws, and maybe even give people incentives to step up and make a difference. The sooner someone takes actions and gets everyone on the same page; the better off our world is going to be. Making a different type of fuel may be a solution, recycling, and protecting our forests. There is already a law about burning trash around where I live, but I have drove by some homes that was burning trash. Which I should have called the cops, and next time I will but their neighbors should say something as well because it is destroying our air. By saving our land with trees and plants we can increase the oxygen in our atmosphere, which can provide us with more clean air.
This plan I discuss above can become very challenging, simply because everyone does not always agree on the same thing. It could be challenging simply because of it can be time and cost consuming. If some kind of laws do not take place and enforced, and if this problems just keeps getting put off, there could be very big problems in the near future. Clean air is everything; it is important for the earth, and very important for our health and future generation??™s health.
When a city expands, more house and buildings are being built, which only meets the demands of new residents moving to this location. In order to meet the needs, they have to clear land, and use heavy vehicles that emit toxins CO2 in to our atmosphere and then can creates global warming. Which all updated homes, and new buildings indoor pollution are released through vents, open doors, and open windows. The pollutants can include formaldehyde, volatile organic compounds, and carbon dioxide. These pollutants can come from carpet, plywood, paint, and solvents. These all have increased the level of air pollution, indoor air pollution, and the chances of global warming increasing.
Not only does this have an effect on the atmosphere and global warming, but it also leads to several health issues for the human race. Both indoor and outdoor air pollution have caused 3.3 million deaths worldwide (“Air Pollution”, 2012). Some of the issues have been respiratory infections, heart disease, asthma, and lung cancer. Children aged less than five years that live in developing countries and are the most vulnerable population in terms of deaths from indoor and outdoor pollution. Some many have suffered from pollution; this is why we need to take air pollution very serious.
In conclusion, urbanization is the increase of population in a specific area, and the leads to increase of pollution. It increases because of everything that it may require meeting the needs of the movers such as, buildings, roads, cars, and industries. All of these not only increase air pollution, but also increases global warming, and we must reduce this for the future. We need to re analyze everything and pass regulations which lead to a standard way of living in an environmentally safe and conscious way of life.
