Solutions to air pollution:

The air (sometimes called the atmosphere) is considered to be polluted when harmful and toxic substances are introduced into it.

An instance of air pollution is seen when insecticides are sprayed into the atmosphere. As a result, certain chemicals are released (into the atmosphere) and these could be harmful to insects, rodents, plants and humans respectively. The chemicals released from the sprayed insecticides are termed pollutants.

Please read on an introduction to air pollution and its effect here.

The released CO is rapidly oxidized to carbon(IV)oxide (CO2) because of its immediate reaction with oxygen present in the atmosphere. Understand that the inhalation of CO can lead to rapid death in humans and animals alike.
