Nowadays pollution is a big problem in the world. Many people and many companies are searching and creating new programmes and strategies for avoiding pollution. Also the government is trying to find a solution. So it is important to know what we are doing with our world. The effects of pollution are a lot but the main ones are the ozone pollution, the death of the nature and consequently slow movement to destruction and extinction.
Ozone pollution is the biggest problem. Ozone pollution is really an increase in the concentration of ozone in their air at ground level. Because the sunlight has a critical role in its formation, ozone pollution is principally a daytime problem in the summer months. Ground-level ozone is produced when sunlight combines with hydrocarbons and nitrogen oxide, two compounds produced by cars, trucks, factories, and power generating plants and found wherever gasoline, diesel or natural gas are combusted. So these gases are going to affect our life.
Another effect is that the nature is dying. Some air pollutants harm plants and animals directly. Other pollutants harm the habitat, food and water, the plants and animals’ needs to survive on. When air pollution causes acid rains, the plants that rely on rainwater to live and grow, are endangered. However, all these pollutants are causing changes to the places where plants and animals live around the world.
Moreover, the people have no choice but to breathe the air around them. When it is polluted, they breathe in ozone, particles and harmful gases that can hurt their lungs, heart and overall health. Air pollution can cause burning eyes and breathing problems, such as asthma or severe bronchitis. Also ultraviolet radiation causes skin cancer.
Pollution is really a big problem in the world because it is causing damage to the Ozone layer that protect the Earth planet and its habitats from the deadly radiation emitting by the Sun, thus resulting in death of natural and growth of human diseases. People are creating new projects that will be good for the humanity. But If we don’t take cognisance of these problems, maybe in future we will have more problems. So we need to try to avoid pollution.
