Vast majority of these companies burned fossils fuels to generate energy for their business operation on daily basis. Also due to the country ill economy, countless Liberians that reside in the rural regions engaged in excessive burning of gigantic amount of coal and oil for their various homes. And besides, air pollutions through transportation is another major issues that needs to be focus on when addressing air pollution, because when too many carbon dioxides and other greenhouse gases that are released into the atmosphere has a negative effect on the air quality. Additionally, the whole populations of Monrovia are undergoing serious threat from health hazards because of immense ejection of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere from automobiles, as well as small power-generating engines, and other various
Air pollution is dangerous to the way we live because it’s harmful chemicals that are oils gasses and other chemicals. Air pollution is controversial because people believe that it’s still out there harming the way we live and harming the planet. Industrialized countries have worked to reduce levels of sulfur dioxide, smog, and smoke in order to improve people's health. Volcanic eruptions from volcanos is also endangering the life style by balking the sun and putting out ash and smoke. Motor vehicles – cars, trucks and SUVs – account for about half the air pollution in the United States air pollution is chemicals in the air that are produced by motor cars and all the chemical plants such as gas plants, oil plants and landfills.there were other
Even snow at time can be acid, also some gasses and particles that are not dissolved well in water with low pH can be more acidic than acid rain. So acid rain is formed when sulphur dioxide and nitrous acid raise very high into the atmosphere and mix with oxygen and water and many other chemicals to form acid rain. Because sulfur dioxide and nitrous oxides dissolve easily in water and carried by the wind, as it travels with the wind it can become part of rain, snow, fog, etc…
• When a volcano erupts it releases gasses like sulphur dioxide and carbon monoxide, and also releases solid material and all those are dangerous to the human health to an extent that mortality can occur and also plants and animals can be harmed by the substances and solid materials. • Geysers produces hydrogen, arsenic and heavy metals. • Digestive gasses digestion from animals like cattle produces gasses like methane. • Dust from deserts and other areas with little or no vegetation, cause air pollution during windy days or seasons.

Waste water has always been a major threat to the environmental imbalance. Process waste streams from the mining operations, metal plating facilities, paper industries, power generation facilities, electronic device manufacturing units, and tanneries may contain plethora of heavy metals, for example zinc, copper, cadmium, lead, chromium, mercury, nickel etc are disposed above the hazardous limit of the local discharge zones. These heavy metals are not biodegradable and pose great threat to human health and environment. Heavy metal pollution is a problem related with areas and zones where intensive industry, road ways, areas of dumpsites and automobiles activities takes place. Usage and their uncontrolled discharge in to the environment has caused lots of hazards to man, other organisms and the environment itself.
Nowadays, our earth is suffering a lot of problems about environment. Each passing year, we receive more warnings about how much pollution we are facing; how bad it does. Modern transportations have contributed a large part to reasons why environment is going down these days. Automobiles send out waste gases rising air pollution. The exhaust fumes which come from car and motorbike contain poisonous gases and pollute the air.
1) Natural disasters Natural disasters are natural phenomena that cause natural destruction such as volcanic eruptions and forest fires due to prolonged drought. For example, the Pinatubo Volcano eruption, Philippines has released excess dust into space causing extremely haze in nearby countries. Natural disasters are also contributing factors to the deterioration of air quality in our country. 2) smoke emissions Vehicle exhaustion also contributes to air pollution. Increased traffic on the road has caused smoke emitted into the air through automobile exhaust also increases.
When hydrological cycle is imbalanced, it affects the natural production system because of the continuous high temperature and irregular occurrence of rainfall threatening the growing pattern of plants and trees (UNCCD, 2011). Aside from drought, patterns in rain, increase in global temperature, and climate change are other factors contributing to drying up of lands (World Ecology Report, 2009). Climatic variations have already a big influence on the dry regions because it is given that these areas are already susceptible to desertification (low productivity, organic matter and stability). Due to these conditions, drylands are more exposed to soil degradation with the influence of wind and water (Cullet,
Air pollution happens when gases, smoke and dust occur in the atmosphere making it dangerous and hazardous to all living species. The atmosphere serves the earth with protection. Without the atmosphere, it would be impossible to live. Pollutants are the matters that cause air pollution; there are two types of pollutants, primary and secondary pollutants. Primary pollutants are particles that are pumped into the air making it filthy and unclean.
The main cause of pollution is bad severage system, extent of industry on a vast scale, Manual scavenging, carbon emission from the vehicles etc. So we can’t deny the fact that environment safety is another big issue in Delhi. As a simple example, you can’t see the stars in the night due to high carbon emission and other harmful gases which has totally covered the atmosphere hence we are not able to see the
