Most forms of air pollution are man-made. Men have done so many things that have contributed to the problem on air pollution. Men are not aware that they make things worst because of the things they do. However, being unaware of the effects of their activity is not an excuse to not knowing the effects that worsen environmental problems. Here are some human activities and inventions that heighten the troubles caused by air pollution.
INDUSTRIAL POWER PLANTS. These power plants have been one of the things that pollute the air. These bring about the idea of industrial pollution. When we say industrial pollution we refer to pollution which can be absolutely associated with industry. Industrial factories release pollutants that affect not only bodies of water but also the atmosphere because they release air pollutants that bring harmful substance into the air.
AEROSOL SPRAYS. Aerosol spray is a type of providing system which creates an aerosol vapor of liquid particles. This is used with a can or bottle that includes a liquid under pressure. Using such sprays can add up to the problem on air pollution. Aerosol sprays are a foremost source f air pollution within the home. Once aerosol sprays spread out into the immediate space and air, the air is unfit to breath. The aerosol mixed into the air could cause health problems especially when it is inhaled easily.
BACKYARD BURNING. People usually do not mind the effect of burning waste. They do not care about the contribution of this act to environmental problems. Backyard burning gives off various compounds that are toxic to the environment. These compounds are nitrogen oxides, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), carbon monoxide, and particle pollution.
WASTE DISPOSAL. The way people dispose waste in landfills play a part in the continous growth of air pollution. This generates methane. Even though methane is not toxic, it is highly combustible and there is a possibility to form explosive mixtures into the air.
