The impacts of air pollution destroy the environment and also ruins its beauty.
Air pollution such as acid rain can damage our surroundings and poison our water.
CFCs (Chlorofluorocarbons) caused by aerosols (such as deoderant) can severely damage the ozone layer, causing the Sun’s harmful rays to breach the Earth and can have very harmful effects on people.
Smog may be by far the deadliest kind of air pollution out there. In a much shorter time than even 10 years, smog can cause the same effects to your lungs and body as cigarettes can in a lifetime. It can cause problems such as colds, pneumonia and lung cancer.
In 1952, smog killed over 4000 people in London.
