Air Pollution

Jungwoo So

Air pollution can also have significant long-term consequences for the planet. Certain air pollutants, such as greenhouse gases (carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide), contribute to the warming of the Earth's atmosphere, leading to climate change. This can lead to altered weather patterns, rising sea levels, and disruptions to ecosystems.

Air pollution affects all things. It is harmful to our health, and it impacts the environment by reducing visibility and blocking sunlight, causing acid rain, and harming forests, wildlife, and agriculture. (UCAR, Center for Science Educaiton)
