well, I have been looking @ a lot of sites for a report that I am doing about the effects on air pollution, and this is cool!

Barry's Response - Thank you Gigi. I hope you're talking about Stuff in the Air in general, as it features a wide range of air pollution research and commentary. Use the box at the bottom of this search page to find out more.

Hopefully I can provide a few shortcuts here while we're talking about it. One thing to start with is to look at the possible causes of air pollution...you know fires, volcanoes, cars, industry and such - https://www.stuffintheair.com/what-causes-air-pollution.html

It has been put forth that air pollution can lead to global warming as well. Some constituents in the atmosphere lead to the trapping of long-wave radiation, the theory goes, and we feel the cumulative effects of this after a while - https://www.stuffintheair.com/air-pollution-cause-global-warming.html

Here are a few links to global warming pictures and comments. As you can see, in modern times, there are a great many connections between air pollution and global warming. - https://www.stuffintheair.com/GlobalWarmingPictures.html

Finally, a good general description of air pollution itself, just so we understand it a bit better. - https://www.stuffintheair.com/AirPolution.html

I hope these help. If not, here's a...

List of air pollution effects and what can be done about it

- Health: Air pollution can worsen asthma, allergies, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The impact of air pollution on respiratory health can inspire a public interest in air quality assessments.

- Heart disease, heart attacks, and strokes are linked to air pollution. When you learn how air pollution affects the cardiovascular system, you're more likely to do things to protect your heart.

- Children exposed to air pollution may have impaired lung development, which can lead to long-term health problems. Knowing this can make you want to assess air quality and make it better to protect future generations' health.

- Pollution affects not only human health, but also ecosystems, wildlife, and vegetation. The broader environmental impact of air pollution can inspire people to improve air quality for the planet's well-being.

- Certain air pollutants, like greenhouse gases, contribute to climate change, causing global warming and unpredictable weather patterns. Air quality assessments can help mitigate climate change by understanding the connection between it and air pollution.

- Awareness of indoor air pollution, caused by factors like inadequate ventilation and household products, can inspire people to improve air quality in their rooms and workplaces for better health.

- Maintaining good health and overall well-being requires clean air. Knowing how air pollution affects our health can make us want to conduct air quality assessments to ensure a healthier environment.
