General | Latest Info

Air and Air Pollution is mixture of solid particles and gases in air. Air and air pollution can be caused car emission,sss chemical,s dust, air planes, and pollen. What causes air bad pollution is factories machines and energy that everyone using. Air Can Be Fresh And Bad Air Depends On Work That We Do. Solution That Causes And Effects Air Bad Is That Gases Of Car,sss Planes, Chemical Gases, And Factories Make Air Bad Because People Are Causing Air Pollution. Air pollution is major problem across United States and around world. It is also probably most serious environmental problem today. Term Air Pollution just kind of tossed around and not taken as serious anymore, although its effects are becoming greater. Air pollution is toxic chemicals in air, that can also be compounds and they are extreme enough to cause health risks. This is damaging ozone layer and creating global warming. One of main air today has led to CDC's fight against Environmental - Related respiratory illnesses, including asthma. Estimate number of 6. 5 million deaths are attributed each year to poor air quality, making this world's largest threat to human health. According to World Energy Outlook and IEA, they estimate that deaths due to household air pollution in Africa may decrease by 110 00 by 2040. However, due to economic growth, urbanization and automobile emissions, outdoor pollution may rise from growing diseases related to Air Pollution - Vivian Qiu on October 27 1948, in Donora, Pennsylvania, area where daily fog of zinc and steel plants is normal, abnormally sooty haze came into town. This results in third of population falling ill and 20 people dead, following 50 in later months. US Government, After This Tragedy, Tightened Restrictions On Industries That Cause Pollution In Air. Emissions of six common air pollutants have dropped 70 percent since demolition and construction sites are bad when it comes to control of particulates, causing increase in air pollution. Particulates can be emitted by process of knocking down or disturbing buildings, letting particulates free and get into air, reducing quality. If workers do not manage what they are doing correctly, it can have harmful impacts on not only their health but communities and environment. At times, enforcing and good practice can be expensive. Pollution threatens public health; in upcoming report by Global Commission on Pollution and Health, pollution is leading source of human disability and death. In Illinois, Chicago is one of metropolitan areas affected by air pollution. Moreover, smog and other air pollutants generated from burning fossil fuels have Cause rise in respiratory and cardiovascular problems.

What else causes air pollution?

Downwinders United States conducted tests of nuclear weapons at Nevada Test Site in southern Nevada in 1950s. These tests send invisible radioactive particles into atmosphere. These air pollution particles travel with wind currents, eventually falling to Earth, sometimes hundreds of miles away in states including Utah, Arizona, and Washington. These areas were considered to be downwind from Nevada Test Site. Decades later, people living in downwind areascalled downwinders, begin developing cancer at above - normal rates. In 1990, US government passed Radiation Exposure Compensation Act. This law entitles some downwinders to payments $50 000. London Smog What has come to be known as London Smog of 1952, or Great Smog of 1952, was four - day incident that sickened 100 000 people and caused as many as 12 000 deaths. Very cold weather in December 1952 led residents of England, to burn more coal to keep warm. Smoke and other pollutants become trapped by thick fog that settles over city. Polluted fog has become SO thick that people can only see few meters in front of them. Fire can be incredibly useful tool. We cook our food with fire, warm our homes, light candles, roast shape metals, and create new energy - all with fire. However, using fire as tool requires extreme awareness of safety, because it can be incredibly dangerous and destructive. Even single spark in dry forest can start wildfire that engulfs hundreds of thousands of acres. Although lightning strikes can cause wildfires, 85 percentage of all wildfires in US are caused by humans: cigarettes, malfunctioning electrical equipment, trash burning, and poorly extinguished campfires are just some ways that humans introduce sparks into their environment. Depending on weather, these small sparks can wipe out entire forests and cities within days, destroying everything in their path and polluting air with smoke thick enough to be seen from space. Learn more about power and science behind wildfires with this collection of resources. Industrial Revolution Was Transition From Creating Goods By Hand To Using Machines. Its start and ends are widely debated by scholars, but period generally spans from about 1760 to 1840. According to some, this turning point in history is responsible for increase in population, increase in standard of living, and emergence of capitalist economy. Teach your students about Industrial Revolution with these resources. Weathering is process of weakening and breakdown of rocks, metals, and manmade objects. There are two main types of chemical and physical. Example Of Chemical Weathering Is Acid Rain. Cause mostly by burning of fossil fuels, acid rain is form of precipitation with high levels of sulfuric acid, which can cause erosion in materials with which it comes in contact. Example Of Physical Weather Is Wind Blowing Across Desert Playas. This process causes rocks to form specific pyramid - like shape and they are called ventifacts.

Air Pollution Challenges: Common Pollutants

Today, pollution levels in many areas of United States exceed National Air quality Standards for at least one of six common pollutants: although levels of particle pollution and ground - level ozone pollution are substantially lower than in past, levels are unhealthy in numerous areas of country. Both pollutants are result of emissions from diverse sources, and travel long distances and across state lines. Extensive Body Of Scientific Evidence Shows That Long - And Short - Term Exposures To Fine Particle Pollution, Also Know As Fine Particulate Matter, Can Cause Premature Death And Harmful Effects On Cardiovascular System, Including Increased Hospital Admissions And Emergency Department Visits For Heart Attacks And Strokes. Scientific evidence links PM to harmful respiratory effects, including asthma attacks. Ozones can increase frequency of asthma attacks, cause shortness of breath, aggravate lung diseases, and cause permanent damage to lungs through long - term exposure. Elevate ozone levels are to increases in hospitalizations, emergency room visits and premature death. Both pollutants cause environmental damage, and fine impair visibility. Fine particles can be emitted directly or from gaseous emissions including sulfur dioxide or nitrogen oxides. Ozone, Colorless Gas, Is Created When Emissions Of Nitrogen Oxides And Volatile Organic Compounds React. For unhealthy peak levels of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide, EPA is working with States and others on ways to determine where how often unhealthy peaks occur. Both pollutants cause multiple adverse respiratory effects including increased asthma symptoms, and are associated with emergency department visits and hospital admissions for respiratory illness. Both pollutants cause environmental damage, are byproducts of fossil fuel combustion. Airborne lead pollution, was nationwide health concern before EPA phased out lead in motor vehicle gasoline under Clean Air Act authority, now meets National Air quality Standards except in areas near certain large lead - emitting industrial facilities. Lead is associated with neurological effects in children, such as behavioral problems, learning deficits and lower IQ, high blood pressure and heart disease in adults. Entire Nation Meets Carbon Monoxide Air Quality Standards, Largely Because Of Emissions Standards For New Motor Vehicles Under Clean Air Act.
