Transcript of "Air pollution presentation"

  1. 1. AIR POLLUTION • CAUSES AND EFFECTS
  2. 2. The number of cars on the world's roads surpassed one billion last year, according to a study that has spurred debate on what the rapidly-growing car population will mean for the world's economy and environment. HOW MANY CARS ARE THERE IN THE WORLD?
  3. 3. AIR POLLUTION  Air pollution can result from both human and natural actions. Natural events that pollute the air include forest fires, volcanic eruptions, wind erosion, pollen dispersal, evaporation of organic compounds and natural radioactivity. Pollution from natural occurrences are not very often.
  4. 4. 1. Burning of Fossil Fuels Sulfur dioxide emitted from the combustion of fossil fuels like coal, petroleum and other factory combustibles are some of the major cause of air pollution. Pollution emitting from vehicles including trucks, jeeps, cars, trains, airplanes, ship cause an immense amount of pollution . CAUSES OF AIR POLLUTION
  5. 5. 2. AGRICULTURAL ACTIVITIES Ammonia is a very common product from agriculture related activities and is one of the most hazardous gases in the atmosphere. Use of insecticides, pesticides and fertilizers in agricultural activities has grown quite a lot.
  6. 6. 3. EXHAUST FROM FACTORIES AND INDUSTRIES  Manufacturing industries release large amounts of carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons, organic compounds, and chemicals into the air thereby depleting the quality of air.
  7. 7. 4. INDOOR AIR POLLUTION Household cleaning products, painting supplies emit toxic chemicals in the air and cause air pollution.
  8. 8. EFFECTS OF AIR POLLUTION 1. DISEASES
  9. 9. 2. Green House effect pruduces Global Warming.
  10. 10. 3. ACID RAIN When it rains, the water droplets combined with these air pollutants, become acidic and then falls on the ground in the form of acid rain. Acid rain can cause great damage to human, animals and crops
  11. 11. 4. EFFECT ON WILDLIFE Just like humans, animals also face some devastating affects of air pollution. Toxic chemicals present in the air can force wildlife species to move to new places and change their habitats. The toxic pollutants deposited over the surface of the water can also affect animals
  12. 12. 5. DEPLETION OF OZONE LAYER  Ozone exists in earth’s stratosphere and is responsible for protecting humans from harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays.  Earth’s ozone layer is depleting due to the presence of chlorofluorocarbons, hydro chlorofluorocarbons in the atmosphere
  13. 13. THIS IS HOW OUR WORLD WILL LOOK LIKE IF WE CONTIN POLLUTING THE EARTH LIKE WE DO NOW
