Wastes that ends up in the landfill releases a significant amount of methane. Methane is one of the most powerful greenhouse gas emission and it’s worse than carbon dioxide. Food continues to pile up in the landfill creating a remarkable of 3.3 billion tons of greenhouse emission. The methane accelerating impacts climate change and global warming. Climate change can affect the world from wildfires to extreme weathers like hurricanes.
Some examples of this include - and are not limited to: the amount greenhouse gases the slaughterhouse industry emits each year, millions of gallons of water waste, and deforestation. One of the biggest concerns when it comes to slaughterhouses is the water contamination, and the amount of wastewater. According to a source “The United States alone has 32 slaughterhouses responsible for dumping 55 million pounds of pollutants into the waterways … annually.” (Farr). If that is confusing, it means that disgusting items such as fat, manure, and grease are being dumped into the water. If having disgusting matter in the water was not bad enough, the amount of greenhouse gas emissions are just as bad.
This is due to the harmful gasses released during volcano eruptions. One theory postulates that natural acid rain has in ancient history caused a mass extinction. Other factor like lightening and biogas exist but humans are the main culprits. Effects The biggest problem with the acid rain is that it affect is spread over the globe, and global politics becomes an issue when cross border policies are to be implemented. The effects of acid rain are also hard to observe and scientist around the world did extensive research to prove that the varying growth of forest in different years was due to acid rain.
I am now observing its belongings as a dangerous atmospheric deviation, debased fish, expanded instances of lung ailments and that 's only the tip of the iceberg. We discharge an assortment of chemicals into the climate when we copy the petroleum derivatives we utilize each day. We inhale air to live and what we inhale directly affects our well being. Air pollution is a main topic because so many people get damaged from it and they don’t even know it. China is one of the biggest countries to get damaged from this.
A reason why air pollution is an immense issue in the modern day society is because it is a valuable hazard for the population and the environment. To better understand the situation there are about 3 million deaths each year, that is mainly caused by breathing in the emissions. These emissions can cause many diseases, such as heart and lung problems, which may also cause death (“Air” para.1 and 8). This reveals that when breathing these elements, you are letting elements such as smog take the place of oxygen. This will have a different reaction in human lungs, which cause many of the diseases.
Pollution presents itself as thick, concentrated clouds of smog through the colder months, because of the topographical structure of the state. Due to the abundance of air pollutants in the state, Utah residents have to deal with smog overtaking the air. This pollutant covers the area with harmful pollutant gases and emission clouds, which could cause serious health issues. With increasing reports of health
CHAPTER 1 1. INTRODUCTION The air we respire contains mixture of natural and man-made chemical, physical and biological elements that modifies ambient air quality. Among all air pollutants, the most threatening for human health include particulate matter and gaseous pollutants such as carbon monoxide, ozone, nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide (WHO). The movement of people into urban areas and the growth of industry within these areas has carried more people into contact with air pollution than any other time in recent memory. High concentrations of air pollutants can cause instant physical symptoms such as rapid pulse and restricted breathing but, even the presence of trace amounts is considered detrimental to health (Levy et al., 2000).
Smog is a type of air pollution which is mixture of smoke and fog. This describes atmospheric condition of a particular area. This word was firstly used by H.A Des Voeux in 1905 to describe atmospheric conditions of towns and was popularized when he wrote a report on smog abatement league due to more than 1000 deaths were observed in Glassgow and Edinburgh during autmn of 1909 from this mixture of smog and fog. smog is of two types, sulphurous smog and photochemical smog. Sulfurous smog is known as London smog which is caused by high concentration of sulfur dioxide coming from fossil fuels burning, coal, and due to high concentration of suspended particles.
Nowadays, the world is witnessing many dangerous problems on human’s life: one of them is air pollution. Thus, the term “pollution has taken over the mass media; we hear this word almost every day. We read about its harmful effects on our environment, but we rarely try to find solutions. However, studies have shown that every person breathes 20.000L of air every day; which means the more polluted the atmosphere is, the more we’re breathing toxic chemicals. In fact, there are many causes and effects to air pollution; however, various solutions are possible if some measures are implemented.
The major problem faced by city peoples are health issues due to poor air quality. It is also 5th biggest reason behind the death of people in India. Talking about the capital, around 80 deaths occur per day due to air pollution. Particulate matter is smaller than our hair diameter, which is about 60microns. As a result, it goes deep inside lungs and damage bronchitis that are helpful for breathing.
