Definition- fossil fuels, cuts down trees,
CO, & CO2, acid rain.
Effects- gives off CO2 in the atmosphere
And gives us the green house effect, plus
Global warming. Helps minerals from soil
Break down so plants can use them.
Solution- drive a car that gets 35 miles a gallon.
Definition-well it comes from burning coal & oil.
Effects- it injures plants and materials. It irritates the upper respiratory tracts.
Definition- car exhaust comes from burning coal and oil, gasoline, comes from a power plant.
Effects- smog, green house effect, depletes ozone, effects lower parts of food chain, effects the air we breathe, effect water.
Definition- makes smog, its pollution from fog and acid rain.
Effects- damages our health, CO, NOX, SO2.
Solution- make cars with no pollution.
5.)Power Plant E.
Definition-NOX, SO, fog, acid rain, emissions, smog.
Effects- smog, plus acid water harms plants, harms fish. (Dead Lakes).
Solution- "clear skies", legislation.
Definition-from burning coal and oil. CO2, SO, NO.
Solution- lower air pollution.
Definition-power plants, SOX + water = sulfuric acid, NOX + water = hitric acid.
Effects- sulfuric acid, hitric acid, building decay, asthma and bronchitis.
Solution- limit the amount of SO2, lime in soil.
Direction- acid, snow, sleet, hail, fog, smog, CO, NOX, SO, sunlight, nitrogen oxide, nitric oxide.
Effect- harms leaves, plants die, trees die, makes asthmatics sick, harms all plants and our lungs, holes in the ozone lets ultraviolet rays in.
Definition-carried by wind, comes from flowers.
Effect- eats away at metal, stone, bridges, buildings, and statues. Allergies, runny nose, watery eyes, sneezing.
Solution- take some medications, use air purifiers, close windows, donít hang laundry outside.
10.)Indoor air pollution
Definition-paint, car exhaust.
Effect- cancer is more likely to be formed in homes then outdoor. Living cancer- radon.
Solution- better ventilation systems.
