Air pollution has been one of the most debated topics. It has been a major concern for most environmentalists. The earth as a planet has been experiencing major damages to its natural fauna and flora. Additionally, global warming has been evidently observed. It is caused by the industrialization across the globe. The emission of carbon to the earth’s atmosphere has been observed in large amounts. The usage of mobile cars, power plants, and even domestic products has contributed to this global phenomenon. The ethics of air pollution are definitely a topic to be discussed.
Scientists are very aware of the present danger that air pollution could give to our planet. As an Earth citizen, we are obliged to minimize the emission of air pollutants. It is definite that all should be cooperative with respect to air pollution. The air conditioner should be used on a minimal level to decrease the emission of fluorochlorocarbons. If in any case, the usage of a mobile car can also be minimized then everyone shall do it. The earth is our home. This is the home of the human civilization. It is also evident that we have contributed to that air pollution.
The United Nations as well as our countries is all encouraged to take part in this matter. It is very evident that the obligation is compulsory with regards to ethics. It is also true that human beings are incapable of breathing air that is composed of 50% carbon dioxide. Human beings should be one in desiring the welfare of our planet earth. Air is a necessity for life. And it is our task to preserve it for the betterment of the following generations.
