Air Pollution is a mixture of molecules and gases that can reach dangerous levels of concentration. Air Pollution becomes present and starts becoming dangerous, both indoors and outdoors, starting at when the levels get to about 35.5 PPM's. It results in developing a higher risk of disease, and it also results in higher temperatures. The diseases end up leading to potentially death, and the higher temperatures ends up resulting in really bad air quality, which doesn't allow you to go outside without developing a disease, or dying.
This map shows the amount of deaths from air pollution in the world every year. The darker the color, the more deaths in the area. Some of the most polluted places are the US, India, China, the Congo, Ukraine, Iraq, Syria, and Pakistan.
This graph shows the PPM of chemicals that are most present in the air during air pollution. Sulfur Dioxide, Carbon Dioxide, and Carbon Monoxide all come from human sources. Human sources include decomposition, using appliances in your home, and much more. Nitrogen Oxide comes from vechicals, while Ozone comes from power plants, chemical plants, and cars.
This graph shows the emissions of products that are the main contributors to unhealthy air quality causing air pollution.
As you can see in the chart, the higher the PPM Level, the more unhealthy the air quality becomes.
LEVELS OF PPM
This graph shows the increase and decrease of CO Emissions (depending on what country it is) in the years 1992, 2004, 2008, and 2014. As you can see, throughout the years, America, Russia, and Germany, have had a decrease in CO Emissions, making the air more healthy in that area, while in China and India, the CO Emissions have gone up.
There are about 4.6 million deaths in the world due to air pollution each year. The 3 most abundant diseases that cause deaths each year is Emphysema, Heart Disease, and Cancer.
In conclusion, even though air pollution has become a very dangerous, and sometimes uncontrollable issue, it can be prevented, and then eventually stopped. Some ways that we can continue to help the environment and prevent air pollution is by saving energy. We can save energy by turning off the lights when not home, and not needed. Some other ways is by avoiding the number of trips you take in your car, and by not burning trash. There are obviously plenty of other ways to prevent unsafe air quality, but by taking these simple and easy steps, we can help make this planet more healthy.
