Thinking Critically About Ethical Issues
13 October, 2008
In the world today there are so many environmental ethical issues going on that are causing a lot of issues for the earth and humans. There are a few environmental issues that we are working to help the environment but needed more help which are global warming, air pollution and recycling issues. On of the most important environmental issues that affects me and everyone on a daily base is air pollution. I am not sure how much we are aware of how much pollution is in the air.

The main reason that we need to try to stop so much air pollution is that is causes health problems, green house effect and global warming.

We don’t rely that all the gas we put in the air are causes us to have so many health issues. We breathe in the entire gases that are let out from all the gas which are carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides. These are waste products of fuels used in transportation, industrial processes and general combustion. (Haby, Jeff) Air pollution becomes a greater problem as the concentration of pollutants increases over a particular area. (Haby, Jeff) The population is growing so fast that it doesn’t help to cut down on the air pollutions in the air. If we would also cut down on the types of smoke in the air would help the lungs. There are some many of us that smoke and when we are done with the cigarette we through out the car window, on the ground or in the trash. That right there has so many chemicals in the cigarette that would help cause health issues and air pollution. This is caused by wind a pressure that keeps it in one area. They also about health issues is the poor air...
