In order to end air pollution clean energy is important because it produces trees and plants which provide a food source for animals, also electric cars are important because they use electricity instead of gas. To stop water pollution people need to stop littering, use green household cleaners, buy organic food that is produced without pesticides, and dispose of dangerous materials responsibly and not down the drain or gutter.
Pollution is both visible and invisible, carbon dioxide is the main pollutant. In the past 150 years the carbon dioxide raised the level higher than they've been for hundreds of thousands of years. Methane which comes for sources like swamps and chlorofluorocarbons which was used in refrigerants were banned because of their effect on the ozone layer of Earth. Another pollutant is sulfur dioxide which is related to the chemicals that cause acid rain, they reflect light into the atmosphere causing it to cool.
Pollution effects over a billion people, being 40% of annual deaths. Children are more vulnerable than adults because they tend to ingest more dirt and house dust from crawling around and playing outside. Although children only make up 10% of the world's populations they take up 40% of the world's diseases. Pollution causes neurological damage, shorted lifespan, and chronic illnesses. It also has the ability to lower the child's I.Q. by 4-7 points.
Air pollution affects your health and environment, in 1952 the Great Smog of London killed 8000 people. The number of people that die in America every year due to air pollution is over 50,000, it is predicted that in 2050 it will increase to over 6 million people per year. It also causes 80% of lung diseases, and the people who live near high traffic roads have a greater risk of cancer, heart disease, asthma, and bronchitis.
The different types of pollution are, land, water, air, noise, and light. Land pollution is caused by clothing, bottles, food scraps, etc. Each person per day pollutes the land 4.3 pounds. Because of the pollution in the water, 783 million people don't have clean water to drink. Air pollution kills more than 2 million people per year. Noise pollution increases coronary heart disease, high blood pressure, stress related illnesses, speech interference and hearing loss. Light is responsible for one fourth of the energy consumed worldwide.
