|time our friend Mariam will tell you this story as she had experience with air, and from her story you will know many things about air pollution!!|
M. :Hello my friend, welcome here. I think you know why I am here now so I will tell you the story without introductions. One day...........
M. :Oh!!help help I can't breath.I am shocking.
Mr.Airy : you see,you can't live without air.
please give me enough air then we can talk.
Mr.Airy : Ok.here you are.
M.:Thanks........Now ,who are you and why did you do that to me??!
Mr.Airy:My name is airy, from air family.I am not angry from you but from all human kind who do not respect or care of me at all and keep on harming me .
M. :How is that? I do not understand anything. please make your talk clear.
Airy:Ok, I will tell you every thing from the beginning. But, before I tell you the problem I think you should know the importance of air and that no body can live without air for 5minutes.I think you felt that yourself.
M.:yeah, sure. I thought that I will die, continue please....
Airy: And of course you know that no life would be on earth or any other place without air as all living creatures depend on it.
But, in spite of that, all people forgot this and kept on harming and polluting air and make it unable to perform its function safely or even to live clean as it used to.
M.:Polluted air?? tell me about that.
Airy:Before I tell you, promise to help me in solving my problem.
M.:Help you??!! how??
Airy:help me by telling all your friends about my problem and let all people as possible know the problem to save the air, then do your best to stop any thing around you that pollute air.
M.:Ok, I promise. But you tell me every thing so I can be able to help you in the proper way.
Airy:The problem began since the human started the technological development and began to invent many things to have better life.
M.:sure every one wants to have and make his life more safe and comfortable.
Airy:But not on the expense of the environment.
|Any way...... on his way to development man built many factories, made cars and he depended mainly on using oil and petrol as source of|
energy, and so this was the first step to the air pollution. And now every large city has a severe air pollution. Hardly any town is untouched.
|.:How is that?!!
Airy:some communities have smog resulting from burning of fuel, coal, and coke.Other communities have photochemical smog.
M.:Photochemical smog?!! what is that??
Airy:This is type of smog that results when certain incompletely burned gases escape into air from car exhausts .The action of the sun light on these gases produces some new and harmful substances, such smog can occur under warm and sunny skies.
communities, the air is polluted by certain industries.These industries may send forth
bits of metal, tar, stone, lead, carbon, rubber and so on.
Other pollutant come from spray of pesticides, paint, and chemicals.Large amount of pollutants come from electric power plants, from burning of fuels for heating buildings, and from the burning of trash and garbage.
M.:Oh my God, all this affected air!!!
Airy:Affect air and more seriously man.
M.:Man!! explain that to me.
Airy: all these pollutants change or alter the percentage of some gases and this would affect the health of the human causing many diseases.
M.:How is that??!
Airy:That you can know with DR.Cleany.I think he will tell you about every thing that affect man from air pollution.
M.:yeah sure I will visit him. You know I now realised something that I read before in newspaper that some scientists say that the temperature and climate of the earth is changing because of air pollution. I also heard about ozone hole that is caused also by air pollution, is it dangerous??
Airy:ozone hole sure it is dangerous it allows some of sun rays to pass to the earth and these rays are harmful to the human body, you see now that air pollution will cause many harms to the human.
M.:yeah, I can see that.
Airy:There is something else I want you to know.
From time man accused me to be way for transmitting diseases but in fact man helped in this.
M.:How is that?
Airy:By the presence of lot of people in small places, crowded together without the presence of enough air and of course this helped in transmitting diseases by coughing and sneezing of the diseases person.
M.:Diseases like what??
Airy:Like influenza, measles, mumps and small pox.
M.:And of course I will know about them when I go to DR.Cleany. So is there any thing else that bother you ??
Airy:yeah, there is something else.Trees....
M.Trees!!! what about them??
Airy: there are some people who are keeping on cutting trees and removing forests and this makes me soo sad. Do not you know that trees and all green plants remove the carbon dioxide and give the supply of oxygen that you-people-need .
M.:Oh yes I studied that before.
|Airy:So I want you
to know that this bothers me lot and affect air badly, beside that don't you people enjoy
the presence of green plants around you??
M.:sure we do.
Airy:Now, I think I have told you the problem , and I tried to show it in simple way as possible as I could. I will go now but I will wait for your help and see if this message has reached to the people.
M.:I promise you to do my best and try to help the air otherwise we running to our end and destroying our mother Earth.
