Wanna know if air polution is pollution we can control?

Search for more about air pollution.

There's more to air polution than smog, respiratory illnesses, acid rain, poor visibility, and general atmospheric ugliness...


Air pollution, especially greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide, contributes to climate change by trapping heat in the atmosphere.  Climate change can lead to more extreme weather events, rising sea levels, and other environmental problems.

Inflammation and oxidative stress in the body can increase the risk of cardiovascular disease caused by air pollution, especially fine particulate matter. 

Air pollution has been linked to low birth weight, preterm birth, and decreased fertility in women.  Experiencing air pollution can also affect your mental health, including depression and anxiety.  

Air pollution can harm crops and wildlife by damaging plant tissues, reducing crop yields, and altering ecosystems.

Using certain cleaning products or cooking with solid fuels can cause indoor air pollution, which has a significant impact on human health, especially in developing countries.

The media has shown that air polution also affects the upper atmosphere.  Changes in the climate map, greenhouse effect, and ozone layer depletion.

We hear a lot of the controversy global warming has generated.  Like the well-known greenhouse effect, a projected cause of global warming and climate change.

You may have read about other atmospheric problems like stratospheric ozone pollution.  Increased UV radiation (UVB and C) also harms people and other life forms.  What's the American government doing about it?

Is it their responsibility?

Ecology education, human effects

Look at what we've done!
"Over the years we have created horrible living and drinking enviroments for all living creaters. We need to find a way to control this or pretty soon all of us will be dead. Plus, our grandchildren and great-grandchildren won't havr anything left to prosper off of."

~Casey - Orange City, FL

All of these effects have been linked with the chemical contamination water collects as well as changes in the composition of the air.  Scientists most often associate these with anthropogenic emissions.

The world needs innovative ways to reduce things that result in air quality problems.  Regional impacts from industrial developments (such as factories) are the place to make improvements.  Environmental regulations required diligence when proposing changes to industry.  And it's getting more and more stringent these days.  Rightfully so.

What do active demonstrations, investigations, studies, and environmental web sites such as this one do? They amplify the commotion, pointing out the need for services like environmental consultancy for health, safety and related issues. And for governments to participate in programs such as the Kyoto Treaty. See the Solution Global Warming webpage for more on this.

Research development services and professional research consultants.

As we increase our knowledge through factory pollution research and testing we hope to find a solution to air polution. We have...

  • emissions inventories
  • flare and stack designs
  • air quality assessments
  • dispersion modelling
  • emissions control technologies
  • regulatory permitting
  • regulatory compliance
  • regulatory reporting
  • continuous emissions monitoring systems (CEMS) audits
  • air compliance audits
  • air management systems
  • quality assurance plans
  • ambient air monitoring
  • emission testing

...and probably more study areas than this. Car pollution, vehicular emissions and other transportation issues will need their own techniques.

Causes of Air Polution

Transportation. In Europe and North America at least, cars contribute sulphur, particulates, nitrogen and carbon based compounds into the atmosphere. They then transform into acids and other harmful components, such as those which cause global warming, more than any other type of source.  Aviation, shipping and other types of transport certainly do their part in adding more air polution to these effects.

Industry. Manufacturing, packaging and support functions cause process emissions.

Ones which may contain ozone destroying or even radioactive chemicals. We can have problems with fuel consumption related compounds similar to the transportation sectors. Agricultural air polution can also fall under this category.

Natural Causes. Volcanoes, fires started by lightning. Also stratospheric intrusion which is natural mixing of poisonous gases from upper layers of the atmosphere, to name a few.

Finally, some things are even desirable to have in the air even if they are foreign. Take music for instance. Remember the last you walked into an Italian restaurant? How the aromatic mixture and sounds would completely envelop you. Go back from AirPolution to the Solution Global Warming page now.

Air quality: air pollution has been identified as a cause of global warming

Do you have concerns about air pollution in your area??

Perhaps modelling air pollution will provide the answers to your question.

That is what I do on a full-time basis.  Find out if it is necessary for your project.
