How is pollution related to global warming?
In 2007 the United States Supreme Court ruled that Carbon dioxide is a pollutant and so the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) has the right to regulate CO2 emissions from new cars. Any burning of fossil fuels like gasoline releases long-hidden carbon dioxide, a powerful greenhouse gas. This extra gas is too much for the natural carbon cycle to remove from the atmosphere, so it remains there capturing the sun's heat and causing global warming.
Global warming, or climate change, is being caused by the enhanced greenhouse effect. This is caused by the extra carbon dioxide from the burning of fossil fuels (coal, oil and natural gas). It is also caused by methane belched from the many cows that are being raised just to feed red meat to the huge population of the world.
These greenhouse gases are the pollution that is directly causing global warming.
Pollution is the main cause of global warming. Pollutants such as greenhouse gases are often trapped in the atmosphere. As a result, heat is retained inside. This heat is what causes temperatures around the globe to rise thus causing global warming.
Smoke from the factories and vehicles contain harmful chemicals which can also cause air pollution. Those air will gather to form clouds and later then will fall as a rain which is polluted and we call this as acid rain. Acid rain can damage the buildings and even can cause plants to die. Plants are the only living thing that can take in carbon dioxide and give out oxygen. if those plants will die, there will be to much co2 and lack of 02 in the air. That will be result in global warming.
