How Trees Prevent Air Pollution

Many cities are notorious for their dangerously high levels of air pollution and the resulting health issues, such as asthma and emphysema. Summer heat and vehicle emissions are just a few of the contributing factors that increase air pollution levels. However, healthy trees planted effectively along roads, buildings and in parking lots can decrease overall […]

Air Pollution and Global Warming

Air pollution causes global warming through the greenhouse effect, according to the United States Environmental Protection Agency. The greenhouse effect occurs when greenhouse gases trap and heat energy from the sun and prevent it from escaping Earth’s atmosphere and entering space. ” (EPA, 2012) Atmospheric pollutions are caused by gasses and solid particulates released into […]

Effects of indoor air pollution on health

Indoor pollution entails the pollutants that are found indoors. It is also termed as contamination of indoor air.

Environmental Impact of Aviation

Aviation contributes approximately 2 percent of total greenhouse gas emissions, a figure which is projected to grow through 2050. Although fuel efficiency has improved by nearly 16 percent since the 1990s, future technologies—including better flight patterns, more-efficient engines, and alternative fuels—have promise for further emissions reductions. The profitability challenges of the early twenty-first century, however, […]

Haze: Air Pollution and Current Visibility Problems

Haze often occurs when dust and smoke particles accumulate in relatively dry air. When weather conditions block the dispersal of smoke and other pollutants they concentrate and form a usually low-hanging shroud that impairs visibility and may become a respiratory health threat. Industrial pollution can result in dense haze, which is known as smog. Since […]

Trees: Water Pollution and Natural Air Filter

Trees clean the air. Tree foliage works as a natural air filter of particulate matter such as dust, micro sized metals and pollutants such as ozone, nitrogen oxides, ammonia and sulfur dioxides. Trees take in carbon dioxide and produce oxygen. Combined with the cooling effect of trees, these processes can have a significant impact on […]

Developed nations should bear the bulk of the financial burden in reducing global atmospheric pollution levels

The problem of environmental pollution is increasingly becoming a major issue of contention across the globe. According to many, developed nations are to be blamed for the problem due to their high levels of industrial productions and their related environmentally harmful byproducts (Environmental Health Perspective). Such are more pronounced in the issue of global warming, […]
