Air pollution. Something we have all heard about, but how devastating are the effects?
the effects of air pollution are far reaching and some obvious. It goes without saying that air pollution is not a good thing. You can notice the difference in the clarity of the air when coming from a busy polluted city to an open part of the countryside.
Asthma and emphysema will obviously increase with increased pollution. The harmful substances in the air are sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide and many more. We can help to clean the air with excellent ideas such as the vertical forests in China, Smog-eating buildings which are built with materials that turn co2 into harmless salts. Ventilation corridors, Smog vacuum cleaner. These are just a few of the amazing green initiatives going on around the world by forward thinking countries.
With technological innovation and genius architectural design, we can convert the current air polluting world into a far greener one.
