Is it healthier to live in the country or a city? Vs. Power stations and vehicles release pollutants into the atmosphere when they burn fossil fuels. These affect the environment. The only way to reduce carbon dioxide emissions is to burn fewer fossil fuels. Other pollutants can be reduced by cleaning the waste gases generated by power stations and vehicles. Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas. Increasing amounts of it in the atmosphere is helping to cause global warming. Particulate carbon, sulphur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide can make it difficult to breathe. It is unlikely they cause asthma, but they may trigger an attack. Acid rain - from sulphur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide - is harmful to the environment. ...read more.
