What is it all about?

 

Air pollution is caused mainly by man in different ways. It can be by cars, airplanes and in industrial areas which pollute the air daily. Moreover, fires and barbecue parties add to the problem. Remember the fires in Australia and in different parts of the world? They are all caused by extreme global heat. 

In most industrial areas around the world people suffer from air pollution because of transportation. It is a crowded area with the reading power station, with industry gas stations waste sites, as well as waste incineration.

Air pollution affects plants. The plants turn carbon dioxide (CO2) into oxygen and produce their own food. As a result of air pollution the plants produce less oxygen which harms the food chain. Plants and animals die . It also has serious implications for the future of the human race.

To sum up, we must raise awareness!  Air pollution affects and causes disaster in animals and plants. Many researchers believe  that air pollution has serious implications for the future of the human race. It harms our health! We must save our planet for us and for the future generations!
