Today, we are advancing towards new technologies, and our lifestyle is changing towards the modern ways of living. Human is growing in every sector of life. But a human has forgotten one thing: thinking about nature. Today, we are talking about global warming and its effects on Earth. Air pollution is also one of the issues that we need to talk about. Humans must create better ways to cope with life-threatening air pollution by focusing on the Causes of Air Pollution (มลพิษทางอากาศ สาเหตุ, which is the term in Thai).
What Is Air Pollution?
Air pollution is when the air is contaminated because of particles. Our eyes cannot see their contaminated particles, but are in the air. these contaminants are
- Small Dust Particles
- Black Soot
- Sulphur Dioxide
- Carbon Monoxide Gas
- Other Gases
When these particles mix up in our air, the air becomes poisonous.
Types Of Air Pollution
There are two types of air pollution. These two types depend on how the toxic gases get mixed up in the air. Indirect air pollution, the contaminants directly get mixed up in the air. For example, carbon dioxide gas is released because of fuel combustion. The nitrogen gas produced by engine combustion or industrial processes gets directly mixed up with the pure air.
Causes Of Air Pollution
There are a variety of factors that affect the quality of air. Sometimes, the air gets contaminated for natural reasons, and sometimes, human error causes air pollutants to affect air quality.
One of the most common causes of human air pollution is the combustion of fossil fuels in industrial plants. To avoid the pollution caused by fossil fuels, we should consider using solar and wind energy. Some factories release toxic gages that harm human health during their production process. To avoid this kind of harmful gases, factories can hire an intelligent employee to monitor the gases released from their factories. Home is where you will get fresh air, but this is not so. You may breathe polluted air at home through cooking smoke, mold, furniture, or construction materials. You can control indoor air pollution by keeping your home clean or fitting an air purifier.
Transportation is also one of the causes of air pollution. Today, people buy cars for comfort and avoid public transport even to their workplace. This has increased air pollution through car emissions. Using cars mindfully can control the increasing air pollution.
