Air is a life giving force. Both animals and plants inhale oxygen from the air. So if the air is polluted, naturally it makes a great threat to all. That’s why air is air is an important element of our environment. But air is being polluted so severely that this problem has become a global concern at present. Air is polluted in many ways. But air pollution is more acute in urban areas because vehicles and mills factories here emit carbon monoxide gases and smokes that pollute our city air seriously. Besides, burning of trash and indiscriminate discharge of human waste in the open air are also the cause of serious air pollution. By inhaling polluted air we are falling victim of various respiratory diseases. To control air pollution vehicles that emit excessive smoke should be banned. lead-free petrol should be used and compressed air should be used in vehicles to minimize air pollution. The best way to stop air pollution is to plant trees and take care of them. The wildlife must be preserved and the mass cutting down of trees must be prevented.
Due to urbanization and environmental change, there is a high extraction of toxic gases. So, there is no single reason for changing air quality. As you find some change in air due to some physical, chemical and biological changes, air pollution takes place in nature. There might be some inclusion of some unsafe material on earth that does not let you inhale well. Air pollution is the most dangerous form of pollution. The cause is that we cannot control the air that we inhale. Air pollution can be defined as the presence of gasses such as oxides of carbon, sulphur and nitrogen in the air. There are a number of causes behind this pollution. In the big cities, this pollution occurs due to the increased number of automobiles playing on the street. A large number of mills and factories are also responsible for air pollution. The burning of coal and other fossil fuels releases a considerable amount of sulphur oxide. Bituminous coal used as cooking fuel, charcoal and firewood also cause air pollution by producing carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide and sulphur dioxide. Besides the burning of trash and indiscriminate discharge of human waste into the open air is also a great cause of air pollution. Air pollution causes different types of disease such as asthmas cardiac disease etc. However, steps must be taken to lessen air pollution. The haphazard growth of industry must be controlled lead-free petrol should be used. More trees should be planted. This is how we can stop air pollution. We can also lead a happy life as well.
