Why Is This Important?
Air pollution is a major concern of our society today; not only for us as humans but also for our environment. The constant additions of pollution to our air from transportation, agriculture, factories, and more has caused a serious decline in the health of many individuals. Pollution has been linked to hundreds of diseases, including, but not limited to, Alzheimer’s, asthma, autism, lung cancer (and other types of cancer), and many cardiovascular and respiratory issues. Several studies have linked poor air quality to the increasing rate in mortality and morbidity. Pollution affects children and the elderly more severely, making them more susceptible to illness. Fetuses in gestation have even shown issues in fetal growth and low birth rate.
As for the effects on the environment, many of our Earth’s ecosystems are being affected by air pollution. Climate change is a huge issue; extra carbon dioxide produced by air pollution is trapped and causes heat to circulate in our atmosphere. This increase in heat affects humans, animals, and plants. Included in these issues, our Earth is made up of 71% water. This means that 71% of Earth is absorbing pollution through water: our drinking water and our ocean’s water. The effect this has on our oceans can be catastrophic. As the pH levels change, the creatures that depend on these environments cannot evolve fast enough to overcome the changes. We are facing mass extinctions in our oceans.
