Secondary pollutants are not emitted directly to the atmosphere but are formed when primary pollutants react in the atmosphere (Green Facts, 2004). Unlike the primary pollutants that are emitted directly to the atmosphere, secondary pollutants are a combination of gases with oxygen and sunlight. The secondary pollutants can be classified into different forms of pollutants. The examples includes: Ozone, acid rain, photochemical smog, nitrogen dioxide, sulphuric acid, these are discussed in the essay. The
vehicle that is very convenient system of transport that flies through the air. It is considered as one of the most important engineering achievements and inventions of all time. Designs of planes’ interior and exterior, engine types, and fuel have shown remarkable change throughout time. Various discoveries had changed the world in many contrasting ways. Electricity and the internet are examples of those discoveries. This essay will scrutinize the discovery or invention and history of airplanes and
weather, especially an increase in temperature. In other words, climate change is a major cause which leads to serious problems such as health problems and water scarcity. This essay discusses the causes of formation of bad influences and evaluates the efficiency of mitigation and adaptation strategies as well. The essay demonstrates that mitigation strategies are more effective than adaptation strategies on climate change. The decrease of available water resources and human health issues are one
years. It is worth noting that global warming is attributed to the collection of not only Carbon dioxide but also other greenhouse gases and other environmental pollutants in the atmosphere that absorbs solar and sunlight radiation and bounces back to the surface of the earth instead of escaping into space. As a result, these pollutants trap the heat thus causing the earth to get hotter. Each day the earth rotates, new heat spins with it; therefore, moisture is picked from the ocean and settled
changes to the surface of our planet is the accumulation and fragmentation of plastics” (Hopewell, Dvorak, Kosior). Is recycling plastic, glass, paper and decreasing the amount of waste in general landfills an effective method to reducing waste? In this essay, the effects of plastic, glass and paper on our planet will be discussed as well as the positives and negatives of recycling. Recycling will be questioned, to see if it is the most effective method. Recycling is one of the three most effective ways
our environment due to burning fossil fuels and using them as tools to make things. In the essay “Despair Not,” Sandra Steingraber concentrates on the actions causing the upcoming problems within the environment. The causes of chemical exposure include asthma, premature birth, learning disability, autism, and breast cancer. Parents are overwhelmed by these problems and are trying to fix them.
One of the biggest issues that humanity has to face is climate change. This essay will cover an issue which affects climate change and a solution for this problem. Climate change is the rate of weather in a country or region over the years. “Climate change refers to a broad range of global phenomena created predominantly by burning fossil fuels, which add heat-trapping gases to Earth’s atmosphere” (Nasa). Climate change has a lot of negative impacts on communities and ecosystems. Some examples
