Air pollution is one of the most common forms of pollution on the planet. A branch of air pollution called Carbon Monoxide pollution is particularly bad for humans and nature. Carbon Monoxide (CO) is a colorless, tasteless, odorless, and toxic air pollutant that is produced with the incomplete combustion of carbon containing fuels. These fuels include gasoline, oil, wood, and natural gas; with the largest source in the U.S being vehicle emissions. Items in households such as unvented kerosene, gas space heaters, leaking chimneys and gas stoves release CO which can effect air quality indoors.
This mixture can be deposited in a number of ways which includes rain, fog, mist, snow and even dust. Acid rain is not distributed evenly across the world because the industrial development of countries is not the same. Acid rain is formed mainly from burning fossil fuels by industries like coal-burning power stations and factories. These factories send tons of pollution into the air where acid rain is formed. Our first thought would be that countries that are heavily industrialized would suffer most from acid rain and that other less industrialized countries would have little to no acid rain, but that is not always the case.
1. INTRODUCTION Carbon dioxide is a naturally occurring greenhouse gas. This gas plays a major role in the growth of global warming. Because of increase in urbanization and industrialization, the emission of carbon dioxide increased which lead to the rise in the global warming. In Martial environment, carbon dioxide is in the largest proportion around 95.9% which make it unable for the life.
This pollution comes from households, vehicles, industries, and farms which releases chemicals. In short pollution means the energy or matter which is released in to the environment which brings a change in ecosystem. The world with its fastest growth of its population simultaneously one of human necessities likes a transportation vehicles also enormously increasing. Most studies shows in the world, there were in 1999 in the world wide the number of vehicles registered were 700 million. From this huge number of vehicles US has got its share which is 200 million vehicles is for passengers’ cars and light trucks.
In the past the level of pollution was very low because the only thing that would produce large amount of burning gases would be if fire happened, and most fires were put out during that time, also the trees uses photosynthesis which is a way the trees breath but it breaths carbon dioxide and lets out oxygen which will clean the earth, but now the trees and other plants can not keep up with the high production of pollution and this causes an increase in the overall pollution, another thing that the industry has caused an effect of the environment is that it is removing trees and wild life, either to build cities in its place or use the wood and other plant products to make products and build more with it or sell made products to the people, for example paper by cutting trees and using its
Pollution has been around for decades, for as long as the human race exists. With the migration of people and with the creation of cities the waste would pile up faster then it could be recycled by the nature. The main forms of pollution are: air pollution, water pollution and land pollution. When releasing carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides and so on we pollute air. The water is polluted when releasing different toxins and similar materials into the water.
As buildings are account for 17% of fresh water intake, 25% of wood harvest, 40% of material use, 70% of electricity usage, 50% of the generation of discharge of carbon dioxide and 60% of solid waste production, in construction of buildings, its industrial section is merely noted to be the largest contributor to climate change, making it one of the least sustainable industries in the world; by referring to this statistics, it is extremely important to alleviate the environmental impact of buildings and construction activities. In order to cultivate a natural environment to better suit their needs, humans have spent most of their existence in which until today our daily life is implemented and in one form or another human facilities such as shelter, road facilities, work and socializing in all kinds of buildings. Human development today depends on the buildings and what they have for its ongoing existence, but our planet cannot support the level of current resources used related to it. Other than the use of resources for buildings, the estimation of pollution that can be assigned to buildings globally is as shown in Table 3.1 (Dixon, 2010). Table 3.1.Estimation of pollution assigned to buildings globally.
Introduction Energy has been so important in such a way that our lives depend on it due to the importance of it in our lives. It gives a faster life to everyone, meaning faster transport, fast manufacturing process for industries as well as faster communication. All of these things I had stated are all part of the things that leads us in having a huge demand of electricity increasing day by day because as the modern systems (technological things) tend to be increasing so is the demand in electricity. This simply show that electrical energy has gone vital and we need it for different reasons namely, heating, in industries for electrical motors and for lighting also needed for transportation. Importance of electrical energy Electricity has become very important in our daily lives at these days we can’t live without electricity.
At very high concentrations of carbon monoxide, up to 40% of the haemoglobin can be bound to carbon monoxide in this way. This level will almost certainly kill humans. NITROGENOUS DIOXIDE- Nitrogen dioxide is a nasty-smelling gas. Some nitrogen dioxide is formed naturally in the atmosphere by lightning and some is produced by plants, soil and water. However, only about 1% of the total amount of nitrogen dioxide found in our cities' air is formed this way.
The ever increasing cost of petroleum in the market is a clear indication that oil resources are decreasing. Power plants are getting hard time extracting oil beneath the earth’s surface as reserves are nearly drought. 2) Environmental Pollution : Extracting and burning oil generates greenhouse gases that contribute to environmental pollution and global warming. 3) The non-renewable energy
