In the past few decades, air pollution has become a major factor on planet earth. The more we advance in technology the more we incline our atmosphere towards pollution, and put it at risk of losing its natural resources. In recent years’ air pollution has become subject to intense study. The impact of global air pollution on climate and the environment is a new focus in atmospheric science. Intercontinental transport and hemispheric air pollution by ozone jeopardize human health and natural ecosystems worldwide and have strong effect on climate. The main gases that contribute to air pollution includes Hydrocarbons (HC), Nitrogen oxides (NOx), Carbon monoxide (CO), Sulfur dioxide (SO2), Hazardous air pollutants (toxics), and Greenhouse gases. These particles of soot and metals give smog it’s murky color. These particulate matters (PM) are result of extensive human activity and pollute the very air that we breathe. Furthermore, air is not only polluted by humans, but nature also comes in with horrific ways of polluting the environment forest fires, acid rain, volcanic eruptions, and pollen dispersal are some of the common sources which can lead to health problems to humans and can develop diseases and allergies which has a major effect on human health and results in hospital admissions. One of the main and most dangerous reason for air pollution are humans themselves with the exponential growth in population all over every second more and more carbon dioxide is released in
