B. Global Warming

C. Air Pollution

D. Water Quantity

Answer: Water Quantity

The Earth’s atmosphere is made up of gases, mostly nitrogen and oxygen, with a small amount of carbon dioxide and other gases. The air also contains water vapor in varying amounts that depend on temperature. The mixture of gases in the atmosphere stays more or less the same, but their amounts vary with the seasons and over time.

In addition to the main components of air, the atmosphere also contains very small amounts of dust and other substances that come from outer space, from volcanoes, from burning forests, from human activities and from many other sources.

A collection of resources to help you better understand the causes and effects of air pollution.

Air pollution is a mixture of solid particles and gases in the air. Car emissions, chemicals from factories, dust, pollen and mold spores may be suspended as particles. Ozone, a gas, is a major part of air pollution in cities.

Smoke from fires and fumes from activities like welding also contribute to air pollution.

People have polluted the atmosphere for thousands of years by burning fuels for heat or power, but the effects of urban air pollution are only beginning to be studied because it’s a relatively new problem. In America, the Industrial Revolution brought about some of the first large-scale pollution problems.
