Why is pollution (air pollution) such a problem?


Can you imagine a world different from ours today, an exposure from pollution that causes extreme hazards to every single soul and organism? Pollution is an introduction to toxic materials that can create harmful effects towards humans, animals, nature, and even the weather. All included is what the world desperately needs, and without it, pollution can destroy the world as we know it.

According to the National Institutes of Health, the exposure from air pollution  damages lung development and can implicate severe diseases towards humans and even animals. The most damage animals get are in their respiratory system, still they can be affected with neurological problems and skin irritation. The contamination from pollution creates toxic chemicals in the air that can affect both human, and animal food supply. Humans create  hazards like littering that can be fatal towards our safety and health. We must consume less and maintain materials to prevent air pollution.

A scary effect pollution can have is in the atmosphere. Pollution can affect greenhouse gasses including carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, all gasses we need to survive as it traps heat in our atmosphere. Pollution causes sea levels to rise, giving us more extreme weather conditions such as hurricanes or heat,  merging with other air masses throughout regions and creating severe storms. Air pollution can directly  damage the liver tissue and ability to respire. The University of Maryland Extension explains that once everything in the environment, such as plants and trees, come in contact with air polluted weather, it affects the biodiversity and can increase the chances of mottled foliage for plants and can create forest fires.

Pollution only negatively impacts  the world. It affects the natural environment, the health of all kinds of life, and creates negative adverse change and occurring contaminants. It creates extreme hazards to our safety towards humans and animals, nature and our climate as we know it to be. The world must look forward to reducing car trips, eliminate fire use, avoid burning and destroying leaves and trees, and avoid leaving anything behind we know we can pick up.
