Automobiles are the main cause of air pollution because when a car’s engine is running, several different types of gases and particles released that can have a big effects on the environment. Cars release a lot of carbon dioxide from the tailpipe; for instance, about 22 pounds of carbon dioxide are produced by burning a gallon of diesel fuel. According to Dusty, he states that “ gas operations have industrialized the western landscape, punching thousands of wells on pristine lands, injecting toxic chemicals, consuming millions of gallons of water, clawing out pits for their hazardous waste and slashing the ground for sprawling road networks. Every well carries with it the potential for serious environmental degradation.” Similarity, trees also have a big impact on air quality, human health or animal’s survival. However, forest fire is one of the most common problems of the environment these days and it’s another major cause of the air pollution. For example, trees are being cut down for industrial reasons and a lot of factories are replac...
