Have you ever wondered how air pollution and disruptors to air quality affects our lives? Well, let us jump right in, first stop Texas!
This is a common manufacturing company in Texas. Many industries like these emit harmful gases like carbon dioxide and sulfur dioxide.
There are many long and short term affects on human health when exposed to air pollution.
This is a old mining cite that was abandoned in the early 1900s. As you can see there is a city very close to this area, which can be very dangerous to human health.
Climate change affects our everyday lives and air pollution is the biggest contributor. Everywhere in the world, we are destroying our ecosystem.
Cars have a huge impact on the environment. In the US cars emit 24 pounds of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases for every gallon of gas.
Just 100 countries have been the source of more than 71% of the world's greenhouse gas emissions. Some solutions would put a price on carbon dioxide emissions by auctioning off permits to emit gas.
Though it may not seem like it agriculture is one of the largest emitters of greenhouse gases.
Abandoned mining sites can contain poisonous gases or insufficient oxygen and many explosives are left behind by miners that have the potential of blowing up. By having multiple checkups on these mining sites and ensuring the public that they are safe, many will be relieved.
There are over 7 billion people in the world and over 2 billion people that use cars with gasoline. Using electric cars and not using our cars as much, instead walking or taking a train can help save our environment.
Agriculture is an essential part of our lives, it feeds humans and animals. There are many consequences that we are not aware of, but there are many solutions that scientists are working on and creating a "New Agriculture."
We have a beautiful planet that can be saved but in 120 years it will not be possible. Taking action and cleaning up a small piece of trash on the sidewalk will help in some way. Not using plastic straws or anything that is plastic will protect and save our ocean. All it takes is one person to influence 7 billion others to save the Earth!
As a young adult, I have experienced the horrifying effects of global warming and greenhouse gases. But it is not too late, by educating children and taking action to saving our only planet.
