Air and Pollution
Air and water pollution play a large role in our environment. The two types of air pollution that will be discussed in this paper are carbon dioxide and nitrogen dioxide. Both of these air pollutions have a daily effect on our environment. Air pollutants are either primary and/or secondary. Primary air pollutants produce a specific type of process, for example, sulfur dioxide released from industrial factories or ash from a volcano explosion. Secondary pollutants are not directly emitted, when primary pollutants react or interact, they form in the air.

In recent years the problem of pollution has become very acute. It is the industrialized west which takes it seriously, because it is suffering from its injurious effects. In India, sufficient attention has not been paid to it so far. If we do not tackle this problem now, future generations will suffer from the harmful effects of pollution.
This problem assumes different forms such as Air pollution, Water pollution, Soil pollution, Noise pollution and Paper pollution. All this pollution results from the greed of man for getting more and more money. Trees have been cut down, on an unprecedented scale and large production by industrialization has assumed gigantic proportions. So the main

Pollution is the introduction of contaminants into the natural environment that cause adverse change. Pollution can take the form of chemical substances or energy, such as noise, heat or light. Pollutants, the components of pollution, can be either foreign substances/energies or naturally occurring contaminants. Pollution is often classed as point source or nonpoint source pollution.
Air pollution has always accompanied civilizations. Pollution started from prehistoric times when man created the first fires. According to

. Eventually 24 industries including oil refineries, steel producers and fertilizer companies made this a place to run their business. In the 1960’s there was no laws to regulate pollutants into the air or water. The proximity of Cabuto didn’t allow the pollution to evaporate into the air, due to the surrounding mountains and winter inversions, the pollution was trapped in the valley causing toxic poisonous gasses to be part of the soil and breathed by the population. It was a wonderful time, as the business was booming and people were making money. In the meantime as people were getting rich, the pollutants were being absorbed into the ground, the forests were becoming less dense

Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has proposed a suite of commonsense requirements that together will help combat climate change, reduce air pollution that harms public health, and provide greater certainty about Clean Air Act permitting requirements for the oil and natural gas industry.
The proposals are part of the agency’s broad-based strategy under the President’s Climate Action Plan to reduce emissions of the potent greenhouse gas methane and smog-forming volatile organic compounds from this rapidly growing industry. The proposal will complement rules the agency issued in 2012 to reduce pollution from the oil and natural gas industry while helping ensure that development of

global warming can make the earth very hot. In forests, some plants and trees leaves can be so dry that they catch on fire.
What causes global warming?
Many things cause global warming. One thing that causes global warming is electrical pollution. Electricity causes pollution in many ways, some worse than others. In most cases, fossil fuels are burned to create electricity. Fossil fuels are made of dead plants and animals. Some examples of fossil fuels are oil and petroleum. Many pollutants (chemicals that pollute the air, water, and land) are sent into the air when fossil fuels are burned. Some of these chemicals are called greenhouse gasses.
We use these sources of

still start to make a change today that will benefit the future of our planet. Many individuals have started to recycle and use organic materials so that the treat of pollution is lower. There are other options to cut back on the burning of fossil fuels. Solar energy in a household limits the dependence of coal. Simple tasks such as turning off the car engine and limiting car usage can lesson air pollution. These strategies work, but they are not efficient enough by

The most important of all these measures was the International Convention for the Prevention of Pollution from Ships, 1973, as modified by the Protocol of 1978 relating thereto (MARPOL 73/78). It covers not only accidental and operational oil pollution but also pollution by chemicals, goods in packaged form, sewage, garbage and air pollution.

Hydropower impacts the environment from the water is uses from dams. This destroys the forest and wildlife habitats, from the floods that’s is used from the dams. So not only does this affect us, but also the fishes and other underwater animals as well as animals that live on land because many of them are getting killed from the turbine blades, that generate the dam. Hydropower also effects the environment from the global warming emissions that is being released into the air, causing more pollution in the atmosphere. These negative problems

About 1% of U.S. landfill space is full of disposable diapers, which take 500 years to decompose. If we did not cared about the environment, the earth would be a place filled with so much pollution we would barely be able to breathe as we would not take any action to stop the pollution.

The history of Volkswagen and Beetle dates back to the early 1930s. Adolf Hitler (Hitler), the Nazi dictator, commissioned an automobile engineer, Ferdinard Porsche (Porsche), to design a Volkswagen, (German for 'a people's car') in 1933. In 1934, Porsche submitted the design proposal for such a car to the German government and signed an agreement with Reichsverband der Automobilindusrie (RDA, the German Motor Industry Association) to manufacture the car once the prototype of it was ready. By the late 1970s, the Beetle's simple air-cooled engine ran afoul of American air-pollution regulations, and its chassis design was not amenable to crash safety standards.

”, 2009). The more serious threat to the ecosystem is the methanogenic bacteria that are produced. This bacteria produces methane gas which is a greenhouse gas, which may arguably contribute to global warming. Oil companies are taking precautions to ensure wildlife and birds aren’t affected. Air horns are set up in the tailing ponds, but this isn’t enough. The real fear is the toxic substance leeching underground and spilling into the Athabasca River. On top of this, if the oil is depleted in the area and the company stops mining, maintenance will stop and further the risk of aquatic pollution.

Can the Damage on Earth be reversed?
Human activities occurring every day have had colossal damage to our planet Earth from the past, and these activities are perpetual. The infinity aspect of these perverse human doings implies continuous damage to the Earth. These activities include air pollution as a result of industrial emissions, water pollution caused by industrial waste products, noise pollution, and soil pollution. These damages yield adverse effects such as global warming, climate change, and loss of marine life among many aggravating effects of environmental damage. Even though, global organizations and governments have devoted much effort to environmental protection and

affects fracking has on the environment.
The economic benefits of fracking include the high amounts of hydrocarbons that would not otherwise be easily extracted from the ground. Extracting these can lead to oil prices decreasing in the long run and a higher supply of domestic fuel. Without fracking, approximately 45% of natural gas that we get domestically will be unattainable. While these benefits seem extremely promising, the environmental issues fracking causes are too devastating for it to be allowed.
Environmental effects of fracking are contaminated water, increased air pollution, trillions of gallons of wasted water used in the process of fracking, and radioactivity in areas of

Pollution occurs in different forms. However all forms of pollution are dangerous in one way or another. Driving, cooking, an other industrial activities means excessive burning of fuels. This is a necessity of every day to day activities. This process releases a massive amount of chemicals in to the air. This is what causes pollution. This can lead to long term health affects on an individual e.g. breathing in polluted air can trigger respiratory problems and can cause asthma. The polluted air can also cause birth defects, cancer and damage to the lungs. These effects can change the development of an individual.

Dam systems can, however, have a noticeable adverse impact on the environment.(“Waterpower”) Large dam projects occupy enormous amounts of land and deprive plants and animals of their habitats which can cause endangerment of species. Sediments and nutrients tend to accumulate in the reservoirs of dams which this promotes the growth of algae and weeds and can give off greenhouse gases and promote global warming. Multipurpose dams, dams built to accomplish several goals at once seem to be more of a drawback than
