Co2 Co2 Co2 Co2 Co2 Co2 Co2 Co2 Co2 Co2 Co2 Co2 Co2 Co2 CO2 pollution:
For each gallon of gasoline burned in an automobile, approximately 19.4 lbs of Carbon Dioxide is released into the atmosphere.
Carbon Dioxide buildup leads to the "Greenhouse effect", where heat is trapped inside of Earth's atmosphere due to the amount of CO2 present.
The amount of CO2 you release is known as your "carbon footprint". How to reduce your Carbon Footprint:
Walk & cycle more
Turn electrical items off at the wall
Use public transport
Only buy what you need
Recycle as much as you can
Turn your PC off at night. This could save 63kg of Co2
Shop for local food produce. This could save an amazing 1,825kg of Co2.

It is released in various different ways, but the main concentration in the atmosphere is due to the burning of fossil fuels (such as coal). Sulfur dioxide is a major air pollutant and has significant impacts upon human health.
It is also released by the burning of fossil fuels. No2 and So2 Pollution:
Sulfur Dioxide is considered to be one of the major pollutants affecting our environment today
Nitrogen Dioxide is a large scale pollutant released daily all over the globe.
In 2005, researchers found a link between Nitrogen Dioxide levels and SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome)
Both of the above gases are a large part of the formation of acid rain, causing extensive damage to the environment
