While air pollution will always be a fact, taking steps to reduce the man-made amount can produce healthier air inside and outside.
The facts about water pollution reveal that the phenomenon is a serious environmental issue to humans and to the ecosystem in general.
Although the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulates many sources of water under the Clean Water Act in the United States, monitoring pollution is still a great challenge.
To address pollution issues as productively as possible, it's helpful to gain a solid background of knowledge about the topic.
The EPA classifies water pollution as two sources: point and non-point.
Human activities bear the most responsibility for non-point pollution sources.

Air pollution occurs whenever contaminants enter the atmosphere.
Particle matter is commonly called black carbon pollution and is comprised of small pieces of matter measuring about 2.5 microns to about .0001 inches.
The most common cause of particle-matter air pollution is exhaust produced by fuel-burning automobiles, industries and homes.
Researchers also believe that fireplaces and wood or charcoal-burning barbecues release significant amounts of particle matter into the atmosphere which can increase pollution levels.
For this reason many researchers believe that indoor air pollution is just as serious a problem as outdoor pollution, if not more so.
One of the most important questions of our generation is, "What is air pollution's effect on the human body?"

Most can be produced with little to no air pollution and minimal waste.
Traditional energy sources, like oil, cause damage to our environment through air pollution and waste, which is one of the main reasons why scientists and researches are looking at renewable energy sources.
Coal or oil aren't renewable and the use of these sources create air pollution with harmful emissions.
