Causes and Prevention of air pollution

Carbon dioxide is one the main pollutants that causes air pollution. This is because, although living beings do exhale carbon dioxide, this gas is harmful when emitted from other sources, which are caused due to human activity. An additional release of carbon dioxide happens due to various such activities. Carbon dioxide gas is used in various industries such as the oil industry and the chemical industry. The manufacturing process of most products would require the use of this gas. Scientists have now therefore identified carbon dioxide as one of those elements that have contributed to global warming.
The combustion of fuels in automobiles, jet planes etc all cause the release of several primary pollutants into the air. The burning of fossil fuels in big cities which is seen at most factories, offices and even a large number of homes, it is no wonder that air pollution is increasing at an alarming rate


  • Always keep your car tuned properly so that it remains in a good condition.

  • Save energy- Try to use minimum amounts of natural gas and even electricity. Whenever possible, avoid the use of air conditioner and use a fan instead.

  • Go in for water-based paints instead of varnishes.

  • .Carpool- This will help to reduce the number of vehicles on the already congested roads.

  • Avoid the use of firecrackers. You don’t really need it to express your feeling of happiness.

  • Reuse things such as paper and plastic bags, paper etc. This will contribute a lot towards reducing the effects of air pollution and global warming
