How long can the environment endure the gradual deterioration that is increasingly instigated through car pollution? There is a tremendous environmental impact on our society that impacts us in the most unpredicted ways, and Im going to share some suitable alternatives with you. Todays technology has presented several alternatives that could potentially decrease the amount of car pollution in the environment; however, humans seemingly neglect these alternatives in favor of convenience and comfort. Do you drive to the butchers? Why not walk? If youre going to Asda, to buy some honey,
Just jump on the bus, its not much money! Your legs were made for walking, why just be a drag? And drive down to the corner shop to get the largest mag? But we hope it stops those lazy bones! This is a poem is titled Car Pollution Poem, and its written by two little boys named Matthew and Simon. As you can see by my introduction, they have the same ideas as me, like driving is not the only way to get somewhere. They also share my idea of how lazy people are that theyd rather pollute the Earth than have to walk a couple blocks or take the bus.
I think that these artists offer us an understanding that people are lazy bones and that there is no getting around car pollution, people get away with it every day. Global warming is a major pollution problem. Gas-guzzling cars and light trucks, such as mini-vans and sport utility vehicles, are major sources of this pollution. Over its lifetime, the average car on the road today will spew out fifty tons of carbon dioxide pollution into the air. Raising the fuel economy standards in the US to forty-five mpg for cars and thirty-four mpg for light trucks would keep millions of tons of carbon dioxide out of the atmosphere.
Carbon dioxide, the primary global warming gas in our atmosphere increased by 30% in the last 100 years. Some regions of the world have already warmed as much as five degrees Fahrenheit. The whole environment is effected by car pollution, including plants and animals. Our environment is full of cars, factories, and other products that altogether, emit extremely large amounts of carbon dioxide into the earths atmosphere. Americas population is increasing. This calls for more urban areas that are rich in wildlife, plants and trees to be excavated, and turned into suburban regions.
Trees are vital for removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and releasing oxygen into the atmosphere. There are several ways of reducing the amount of emissions in the United States: look into new developments in the electric industry, boost tree planting, and look for advancements in alternative energy sources. Our laziness and stubborn attitudes are contributing to the deterioration of the Earths atmosphere. The greenhouse effect is the process by which the suns infrared rays enter the earths atmosphere. Carbon dioxide, water vapor, methane, nitrous oxide, and tropospheric ozone allow these rays to initially penetrate the atmosphere.
Various objects on the earths surface absorb portions of these rays, but the remaining rays are radiated back toward space. Some rays eventually become trapped by the earths atmosphere. This global warming allows earth to remain warm enough for life to exist. The greenhouse effect and global warming do not become hazardous until synthetic impurities are emitted into the atmosphere. Vehicular exhaust, which contains high levels of carbon dioxide, mining procedures, fertilizers containing nitrous oxide, and the ignition of methane and coal have amplified the amounts of greenhouse gases.
Carbon dioxide holds the biggest threat because it accounts for over fifty percent of the atmospheres concentration of gases. These increased amounts of carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, methane, and tropospheric ozone allows less heat to escape back into space, therefore, more heat becomes trapped in the earths atmosphere. The rapid buildup of greenhouse gases in our atmosphere is the source of the problem. By burning ever increasing quantities of coal, oil, and gas we are choking our planet in a cloud of this pollution. The circumstances that shall occur as a result of global warming are treacherous.
The warming of the earths atmosphere will gradually begin to melt large glaciers and the earths polar caps. An expanse of sea ice larger than Texas-more than 14,000 square miles on average-has been lost each year since 1978, according to a report yesterday by U. S. , British and Russian scientists in the journal, Science. This will cause the oceans to rise, islands to become submerged in water, and coastal cities will be ruined. Also, the global warming could bring about tropical storms, hurricanes, extreme temperatures, and droughts.
The rapidity by which these hazards shall occur depends on several factors: human growth population, the energy supply mix, the efficiency with which energy is produced and consumed, oceans response to temperature change, deforestation rates, the emission rates of synthetic greenhouse gases, and both positive and negative climatic feedbacks. The whole environment is effected by car pollution, including plants and animals. Our environment is full of cars, factories, and other products that altogether, emit extremely large amounts of carbon dioxide into the earths atmosphere.
Americas population is increasing. This calls for more urban areas that are rich in wildlife, plants and trees to be excavated, and turned into suburban regions. Trees are vital for removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and releasing oxygen into the atmosphere. There are several ways of reducing the amount of emissions in the United States: look into new developments in the electric industry, boost tree planting, and look for advancements in alternative energy sources.
A new report by the World Health Organization (WHO) showed long-term air pollution from cars in Austria, France and Switzerland triggered an extra 21,000 premature deaths per year from respiratory or heart diseases, more than the total number of annual traffic deaths in the three countries. Physicians around the world have issued grim assessments that global warming may already be causing the spread of infectious diseases and increasing heat wave deaths. Extreme weather events have become more common. Plants and animals around the world have become more common.
Plants and animals around the world are shifting their ranges in an effort to escape a changing climate. Some alternatives opposed to driving your 5-ton tank alone all the time might be to carpool, ride a bike, walk, or use public transportation (if needed). Some forms of public transportation include: buses, tramways, trains, ferries, airplanes, subways, and trolleys. The electric car came out a couple of years ago, which people thought would be a great idea. Electric pumps at every gas station, a charger at your house, good idea, right? No, wrong.
Two main sources of pollution during the ownership of the electric car (not including its manufacture) are the source of electricity itself, and the production and disposal of the lead and sulphuric acid of the batteries. Two other bad points about the electric vehicle include the fact of how unattractive they are and how hard it is to change them up all the time, and the power doesnt last very long. In my opinion, the best alternative is the Nissan Sentra Clean-Air Model which is compared to the Sentra GXE. The 2000 model year Nissan Sentra is certified as the cleanest gasoline-fueled car in the world.
The only gasoline-fueled vehicle in the world to attain the agencys most stringent tailpipe emission levels and zero evaporative emissions, while fulfilling all OBD II requirements. OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic II) standards enable cars to detect minute changes emissions, and to notify the driver when service may be needed to keep the engine running in its cleanest possible state. According to CARB: The Nissan (Sentra CA) alone qualifies for the partial zero emission credits because it also has zero fuel evaporative emissions and has adopted CARBs optional 150,000 mile durability and warranty standards on emission control parts.
The most significant feature of the Sentra CA is zero evaporative emissions, a feature thought extremely difficult, if not impossible, to attain just a few years ago. In Europe, they have a Car Free Day every September 22nd. Studies have shown a 50 % drop in the noise level. In 1998, the drop in noise level was the factor that most inhabitants of the participating towns noticed. In the reserved areas, the average drop was measured at 6 decibels compared with a day of normal traffic, which corresponds to a reduction of over 50% in the noise level.
There was a considerable reduction in pollution caused by traffic in the air. In areas where circulation was regulated, pollution directly linked to automobile traffic dropped between 20 and 50% depending on the pollutants and the towns. On the other hand, the duration of the operation (a day) is not sufficient to record significant results for all the areas covered by the towns taking part. If the human population does not start to do what it can to prevent the augmentation of car pollution, the future of our planet may take a turn for the worse.
If we dont begin to act now to curb global warming, our children will live in a world where the climate will be far less hospitable than it is today. In conclusion, I feel that car pollution is a growing problem. I dont see anyone buying the electric car or even the new Nissan Sentra CA. I think that if people would take public transportation or walk rather than taking a two-minute car ride by themselves all the time would cause less pollution and preserve a whole lot of resources. Let me tell you a little story about my ride; about my car, About the engine that is inside my car.
It seems like it got torque, but really its a joke. The problem isnt noise, but the smoke That flows inside my cockpit making people choke, And worse yet; the fumes are poisonous gases Doing much worse than fogging up your glasses My girlfriend died from carbon monoxide, What should I do, my girlfriend died Made the decision to go into the wilderness; Left my windows down because Im feeling it. I didnt want those fumes to make me die; Cool breeze in my face keeping me alive. Analytically, my creative work, Thug Life is elucidating that his girlfriend had died from car monoxide.
In the first stanza of my song, Tom Green admits that not only did his car affect his girlfriend and him; it affects everyone else too, even the surrounding environment. In the first paragraph Tom Green says Let me tell you a little story about my car, but its not just his car thats causing this pollution madness, its every car. Tom Greens rapping in Thug Life may sound thuggish, but hes really just telling his audience how harmful car pollution is. Tom, creative as usual, has made some good points, rather we like it or not. Not only is the smoke and fumes car pollution, but the noise is also.
I remember when I learned about pollution in Kindergarten, and I was worried about cars making too much noise and creating more noise pollution. Theres so much pollution in our environment now that noise pollution is the least of our worries. My research paper is talking about how car pollution affects everyone and pretty much everything. Even if you dont drive or contribute to the whole car pollution thing, youre still breathing in carbon monoxide along with all the other harmful car pollutants floating in the air. I think Thug Life does a good job of complimenting my paper because it also talks about the pollution of Toms car.
I think that Thug Life is an effective way to educate and communicate the idea that car pollution is bad, and its killing. But besides that, its just a joke song that I liked before I even thought about doing a research paper on car pollution. Hopefully my song rose consciousness out of at least one person who saw my presentation. Im pretty sure it did though because on my returned responses, I got a couple of I cant wait to ride my bikes, and a few I would like to know more about this, this, and thats. In Tom Greens song, he uses humor to keep out attention. Who really wants to hear a song about a girlfriend dying from carbon monoxide?
By using humor he first grabs our attention, than he wakes us up with the meaning behind the humor. The humor in his song makes learning about car pollution much easier than my boring research paper. I think Tom Greens creativity brings humor into car pollution, even though there really is nothing funny about car pollution. Tom Green makes a lot of things that arent funny pretty darn funny. But those things stick in our heads, it doesnt teach us much of anything, but we remember it a lot more than any practical research that would be on the Discovery channel.
Not realizing the price we have to pay. Will be with us until the day we die. To the beautiful world that we have been given; Destroyed everyday by the way we are living. If we keep it up at the pace we are going, The beautiful life in our gardens will stop growing. This is a poem I wrote about car pollution. It was very different from the research paper. I had to use the creative side of my brain. Even though it was a lot more interesting for me to do the creative work part of my paper, I couldnt have done a good job without doing the research first.
