Pollution & Climate Change

Climate change and air pollution are inextricably linked. The main source of CO2 emissions - the extraction and burning of fossil fuels – is also a major source of air pollution, contributing to climate change. Furthermore, many air pollutants contribute to climate change by influencing the quantity of incoming sunlight reflected or absorbed by the atmosphere, with some pollutants warming the Earth and others cooling it. Methane, black carbon, ground-level ozone, and sulphate aerosols are examples of short-lived climate-forcing pollutants (SLCPs). They have a huge impact on the climate: after CO2, black carbon and methane are among the leading contributors to global warming. People, wildlife, and the ecosystem are all harmed by global warming pollution and climate change. A blanket of pollution traps heat around the world, causing global warming, commonly known as climate change. Cars, factories, residences, and power plants that burn fossil fuels such as oil, coal, natural gas, and gasoline contribute to this pollution. Pollution from global warming knows no bounds. It enters the atmosphere, travels around the world, and traps heat for 50-200 years after it is released.
