Air Pollution

Air pollution  is one of the major problems created by modern man.  It  is estimated that about 100 million tons of waste are poured  into our atmosphere each year. Wastes in the form of smoke from industry, power plants, automobiles and homes; and also due to burning of fossil fuels, spread pollution into our atmosphere. Aircrafts also release large amounts of burnt or unbumt fuel into the air. You may have seen a long trail of smoke left behind by a climbing jetliner.
