The Negative Influence Of Air Pollution

1371 Words6 Pages
Life on earth has been susceptible to many natural and man-made disasters which have ultimately affected the growth and development of animals on earth. Pollution deprives the earth of its natural resources such as, land, water, and air, all of which are essential to the well being of living organisms. Distinctly, pollution has a negative influence on air required for the survival of most creatures. Structures and inventions constructed by man, such as factories and cars, contribute to an increased concentration of harmful substances in the air. The burning of fossil fuels allows for toxic levels of smoke emissions to filter into the atmosphere. An efficient procedure is necessary to resolve and contain the issues presented by air pollution.…show more content…
Air pollution influences the development of acid rain, which affects forests, lakes, and crops ultimately leading to the denaturing of wildlife and vegetation. In addition, the environment becomes altered by toxic waste, the majority of organisms would be unable to adapt and acclimatize to new surroundings. Many animals rely upon natural sources of food and water, however, “carcinogens, mutagens, and poisons are released into the air each year” transforming and “damaging health and habitat near their sources” (French). When all natural resources become depleted by air pollution, various species will become either endangered or extinct. Toxic levels have exceeded and become intolerable by plants, as this process has contributed to the death of flora (Turner). The growth of the environment will become stunted, and the climate will become unbalanced, spreading pollutants to other regions. Diverse amounts of bodies of water have become diminished because of the unrelenting disturbance industrialization has created (French). Water becomes contaminated and erases the distinct population of marine animals by destroying habitats and erasing food sources. Destruction of the environment only continues to grow, and no sign of recovery is possible because of the sustainment of air…show more content…
Government involvement is the primary force that is authorizing environmental acts to reduce and alter emissions produced by factories and other structures. The first initial act that passed was the Clean Air Act, enacted in 1955 that regulated all stationary and mobile sources that have emitted pollutants (McCarthy). Recognition of these issues is becoming more prominent, and with contributions from the government, many toxic particles have started to become eliminated. The Environmental Protection Agency has created protocols for automobiles, allowing for the EPA to monitor and clean up vehicle emissions, as well as, contribute funds to the control in air quality (Colwell). Many sources targeted, include vehicles, power plants, and industrial locations that have become disposed of to save regions that are congested with unhealthy air pollutants (McCarthy). Addressing these issues allows for the country to establish protocols to resolve the affair with air pollution, and protect the public health. Government planning and cooperation with its citizens have allowed for various methods to be efficient and work accordingly, meeting standards promoting eco-friendly
