Every year, Southern Californians guzzle gallons of fossil fuel. As a result, air pollution is still extremely high. With such little education about the issue, people are unaware about how many pollutants they are emitting. However, Southern California and its population could do much better in against taking action air pollution, and strengthen their current activities. Everyone can make a difference in this issue. Efforts should be strengthened to reduce Southern California’s excessive use of fossil fuels and increase environmental consciousness about the matter.
Air pollution causes the damaging of the environment, human health and the quality of life. With the development of the
The common misconception is that air pollution is under control, but the fact of the matter is, it’s not it’s inclining, and is hurting thousands of Canadians annually. “Air pollution is a "silent killer" and is unique in that it affects the entire population”, according to Dr. Michael Brauer, professor at the school of population and public health, University of British Columbia. Canada in respects to the recent updated World Health Organization mandates have fallen behind, the need is for Canada to act sooner rather than later.
For example, group of people are more affected by air pollution in developing countries. The disease like cardiovascular is common in people who are working in the factories and polluted environment. The mortality rate is higher among this people. According to the Maynard the epidemiological method shows the daily variations in levels of air pollutants could be correlated with deleterious effects on health. The long term effect of air pollution is increase 6% risk of all-cause mortality. The long term effect of air pollution is increase 6% risk of all-cause mortality. The effects of major gaseous air pollutants have not been qualified. It is clear that the air pollution creates major health problem in United Kingdom. Michael L. Anderson (September 2015) stated that the mortality rate for the age above 75 years is 3.6 to 6.8 percent due to air pollution. The capitalism also leads to most of the air pollution in the world. For example, many private companies into the third world nation don’t follow the rules and regulation for air pollution. According to Guarnieri, Michael; Balmes, John R. (2014), vehicle traffic and power generation are the main root of urban air pollution. While in countryside the air pollution is less. John et al., (2014) claims that the Improved air quality to prevent health problem will require strong governmental and corporate efforts to move economies in both developed and developing
Gasoline and diesel are fossil fuels and aren 't infinite. Battery electricity are better, they don’t pollute and don 't burn fossil fuels. Instead of having a gas tank and having to fill it up at a gas station, these cars have batteries in their place and can be recharged with a larger charging station and needs 220 volts. The recharged batteries stay charged until the car is driven. Some people say that battery powered cars are slower, but it isn’t by much and battery powered cars think is worth slowing down a little if it means saving the planet. Most electrical powered cars can last around 50 miles before needing to be recharged. No Matter what people will not change because they are stubborn so I hope there is a low against gas cars.
Climate change is one of the global issue that requires multiperspective approach. One of the key cause of climate change is air pollution. Air pollution occurs as a result of release of greenhouse gases to the atmosphere. There are two key sources of air pollution that should be targeted if the air pollution is to be reduced. The first source is the industrial stationay sources, which include electric power facilities. The other source include automobile, buses, trucks and other vehicles. These two key sources account for the bulk of air pollution. If the climate change is to be addressed, then the first step is to ensure that these two sources are redesigned so that the
Air pollution pervasively impacts humanity as a global society. It results in minimized quality of life and initiates instability within the environment . Air pollution causes extensive detrimental health effects on the residents of Southern California, especially on select sensitive individuals, and has significant adverse impacts on the environment of Southern California.
The invention of the automobile has brought more positive and negative effects than any other invention throughout transportation history. Transportations have changed the way people live all over the world. Automobile companies have created numerous jobs all around the globe. Automobiles have affected all aspects of society such as family life, the economy, and even the environment. The advancement of automobiles over time has directly affected the advancement of society as a whole. Society relies intensely and increasing on private motorized transport, vehicles are expected to become safer, more luxurious and powerful. These expectation, however do not take into account of the ensuring consequences such as greater emissions of air pollutants and greater exposure of people to hazardous pollution that causes serious health problems. All the evidence points to the magnitude of these adverse effects on health and to the need to identify solutions that both reduce risks to health and meet the requirement for mobility. This creates a major challenge to the governments, public health organizations, environment authorities and most importantly to the design engineers. Automotive emission related air pollution must be reduced before its effects on health can
The most dramatic and detrimental incident occurred in London Fog. A temperature inversion covered the Thames River Valley; the deadly acid aerosols were trapped in the atmosphere, more people died from this incident over 4000 people died because of the deadly temperature inversion that settled over in London. It was recorded that over 4000 people suffered from bronchitis, Pneumonia, and respiratory diseases. This incident was an alert to the British parliament, immediately the burning of soft coal was barred in London.
On December 2, 1970, the Environmental Protection Agency was established. The Environmental Protection Agency, EPA, was created due to an elevated concern on pollution. Since being established, the EPA has committed to improving human health and improving the environment. The EPA was first proposed by President Richard Nixon and it began operating in December 1970. The agency works will all levels of government to create and enforce regulations and laws. The agency also works with industries in voluntary pollution prevention and conservation programs.
Contaminated air in the U.S. threatens Americans’ lives. Over several decades, our air has improved. However, the air is still harmful to everyone. Pollution from factories that use coal are a major cause of air pollution. One of the most dangerous issues with air pollution is dust and soot. “African-Americans are about three times as likely to die from exposure to it” than the general population (Stein). Polluted air can destroy the ozone layer that protects us from the sun.
Air pollutions rapid increase is not without our help, many causes and sources of this problem are attributed to
Tobacco-free kids Association Created in 1996, the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids is a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization in Washington, Dc which is a leading force in the fight to reduce tobacco use and its deadly toll in the United States and around the world. Their mission is “A future free death and disease caused by tobacco. They save lives by advocating the national, state or local level proven public policies that prevent kids from smoking, help smokers to quit and protect everyone from second-hand smoking.
Global warming. Overpopulation. The lack of food and poor soil. The Government controlment over everything. The Earth as we know it is becoming more and more deteriorated. The 1970s, a time of people’s worries of these upcoming issues will try to fix these items that will ruin earth. In 1973, the movie Soylent Green was released, demonstrating what global warming and lack of food would do to the earth. The experts, such as scientists, industrialists, and government branches were brought up and questioned by a wide range of people. The authorities became the know-it-alls and were unreliable to make decisions for the earth that will affect this planet for as long as it could. People who wanted to see earth again and saved came to protest over
In order to solve such a problem, a strong understanding is needed. Air pollution is one of the various forms of pollution. It is the presence of foreign toxic substances or pollutants into the air. There are many different types of air pollutants that are introduced into the air such as carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and, nitrogen dioxide. Moreover, pollutants fall under the two categories: primary pollutants and secondary pollutants. Primary pollutants are gases or particles like intentionally emitted from human behavior, for example: vehicles exhausts emit
