The major human activities which pollute the atmosphere are as given below:

  1. Burning of coal, wood and oil pollutes air – Burning of fuels like coal, wood, and oil produces black smoke causing pollutes the air. Smoke contains poisonous gases like carbon monoxide and sulphur dioxide which pollutes the atmosphere.
  2. Exhaust gases emitted by internal combustion engines – The gas emitted by the engines of automobiles such as cars, buses, trucks, etc contain poisonous gases like carbon monoxide, nitrogen oxides, hydrocarbons, some lead compounds, and unburnt carbon particles which pollute the air. Motor vehicles are also major cause of severe air pollution in big cities. The railway engines, ships, and airplanes also pollute the air.
  3. Chemical industries pollute air – The chemical industries releases several poisonous gases into the atmosphere which pollute air. Similarly industries engaged in the extraction of metals produce sulphur dioxide gas by roasting the sulphide ores of metals like iron, copper and zinc. This sulphur dioxide goes into the air and causes pollution.
