There are many different types of pollution, but one of the most disaterous is air pollution. Air pollution is destroying our sky’s as well as the health of our nation. “The first thing people see, in the morning, when they walk outside is the sky or the colored sun. Is this world giving us the privilage of seeing the natural colors of the sun through all the layers of pollution” (Dinanike 31). Not only are beautiful sights blocked by air pollution, but it contributes to diseases, infections, and death occurances.

Our ozone is being sacrificed each time someone decides not to use one of these methods. What is air pollution? What can we do to prevent it, and get rid of it? Why not take care of the problem now?
These are all valid questions that should be answered and dealt with imetatly. The main cause of air pollution comes from factory’s and industry’s, and with your help we can help reduce the pollution they put into the air. “Air pollution is the presence in the atmosphere of harmful gases, liquids, or solids. Air pollution, known as smoke pollution for many years is caused by many things” (Hodges 326). Air pollution can be created through many ways.
Combustion, the burning of fuel, and respiration, a similar process in animals, produces carbon dioxide and water when burned completely and cleanly. To much carbon dioxide may contribute to the greenhouse effect. Unfortunately, that is not the only consequence of combustion. Fuel is usually not burned cleanly or completely because it may contain impurities, other chemicals which produce dangerous pollutants, and many not be burned efficiently. Fossil fuels, coal, oil, and natural gas, contain such impurities.
