What are environmental effects of air pollution?



  1. 0 Votes

    Acid rain, a form of precipitation that contains high levels of sulfuric or nitric acids, is caused by air pollution. It can contaminate drinking water and vegetation, damage aquatic life, and erode buildings. Air pollution also causes seasonal “holes” in the ozone layer in the atmosphere above Antarctica and the Arctic, coupled with growing evidence of global ozone depletion. This leads to an increase in the amount of ultraviolet radiation reaching the earth, where it damages crops and plants and can lead to skin cancer and cataracts.
