T-X to Extinction

How Pollution is prominent to the World's extinction


The introduction of harmful substance or production into the environment that isn't good for humans and other organism.

The major cause for pollution are because of human actions.

Such as: Automobile emissions, chemical odors, factory smoke, and similar materials are considered air pollution.

An Automobile emission that is harmful to the environment is carbon monoxide. Carbon Monoxide is a chemical compound that is produced when carbon-containing materials such as gasoline, coal, wood, and trash are burned with insufficient oxygen. And when the amount of oxygen is restricted, carbon monoxide forms instead of carbon dioxide. It is dangerous to other humans because if you are exposed to it in an enclosed area it can cause death

The daily task of Industries causes large amounts of pollution.

Ways that industries cause pollution are: procuring raw materials, manufacturing and marketing products, disposing wastes, and causes large amounts of pollution

Industries don't really make the effort to try and stop pollution because it's time consuming and hard to find alternatives for harmful things that they cause to the environment, and most of the time it is too expensive.

Industries consume energy and resources to make their product and they must sell those products profitably to exist.

Smog Development

During morning rush hour traffic the emissions from our cars cause an increase in the amount of Nitrogen Monoxide (NO) and Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in the atmosphere. The presence of these compounds leads to an increase in the amount of Nitrogen Dioxide(NO2). With the sunlight and warm temperatures they have an affect with the increase in NO2. Peroxyacetyl nitrates and aldehydes are produced by chemical reactions between VOC, No and NO2 causing their levels to rise and stay high throughout the middle of the day. As Smog continues to be present in our air, it can affect our lungs and affect us long term.
