Air Pollution Information

Written and compiled by .

There are many types of air pollution and it doesn’t all come from cars. It comes from the cars on the street to the lawn mowers in garages to the ships that are sailing on the ocean. Those sources of pollution
are affecting the world in ways most people probably don’t even realize. Air pollution is so bad in some parts of the world that acid rain can eat straight through umbrellas, destroy forests, and harm animals. It’s causing changes in the climate, bringing about the melting of polar ice caps and the drying up of
rivers, putting many animal species at risk of extinction. Even the air inside homes is polluted!
