What can be done in the future about pollution?

Reduce the number of trips you take in your car. Reduce or eliminate fireplace and wood stove use. Avoid burning leaves, trash, and other materials. Avoid using gas-powered lawn and garden equipment.

What will happen to Earth if we keep on polluting?

Chances are, if we keep polluting, our ice caps will melt. The earth has risen only 0.85 °F in the past 100 years. But if we keep polluting at the rate we are now, the earth could rise to a maximum of 11.5 °F during the 21st century! This would cause catastrophic effects.

What will happen if pollution increases?

Long-term health effects from air pollution include heart disease, lung cancer, and respiratory diseases such as emphysema. Air pollution can also cause long-term damage to people’s nerves, brain, kidneys, liver, and other organs. Some scientists suspect air pollutants cause birth defects.

What will the air quality be like in 2050?

LONDON (Reuters) – Air contaminated with pollutants such as ozone and tiny particles could cause the premature death of about 6.6 million people a year by 2050 if nothing is done to improve air quality, scientists warned on Wednesday. It is also linked to deaths from lung cancer and acute respiratory infections.

What will life be like in 2030?

Life in 2030 will be vastly different due to changing demographics as well. The world population is expected to reach 8.5 billion people by 2030. India will overtake China as the most populated country on Earth. The fastest-growing demographic will be the elderly: 65+ people will hit one billion by 2030.

What will the environment be like in 50 years?

A new study published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences shows a “surprisingly narrow” human climate niche—between 52 degrees Fahrenheit to 59 degrees Fahrenheit. And it will shift geographically more in the next 50 years than any time during the past 6,000 years.

What happens if the level of air pollution continues to increase?

Catastrophic Impact of Air Pollution in the Future The impact of increasing air pollution is more dangerous than you think. If air pollution is not controlled, by 2030 the air will become so poisonous that it will be necessary to use an oxygen kit to breathe easily. Rising air pollution will also lead to premature aging.

What is the world going to look like in 2050?

By 2050, if climate mitigation strategies and air pollution regulation don’t halt rising temperatures, the skies of Los Angeles could revert to the soupy smog of the 1970s, Bento says. That was a time before the Clean Air Act, when more than half the days in the city had unsafe levels of pollution.

What happens to the environment if pollution goes unchecked?

Of course, the economic benefits ostensibly outweighed the environmental and health concerns, and humanity has leapt from one pollutant practice to the next in the intervening near-millennium. Should air pollution go unchecked, we can expect our skies to become foggier and our oxygen harder to breathe.

What will the problem of plastic pollution look like in 2040?

There has been an upsurge in plastic pollution as humanity reaches for masks, gloves and other disposables to fight coronavirus. But what, ask Costas Velis and Ed Cook, will the problem of plastic pollution look like in 2040?
