At the beginning of the industrial upheaval, no one paid any attention to the problem of pollution. As the science, progressed people started to realize this crisis.

From various factories come millions of particles that are carried off in the air. Chemical plants fabricate gaseous by-products that are toxic when their concentration is high enough. As parts of the world become more industrialized, air pollution has generally increased and new health hazards have developed. Air pollution can result from causes that we cannot control. For example, forest fires, dust storms, and volcanoes.
Acid rain is one of the products of air pollution. Acid rain is created when raindrops combine with the polluted air. Acid rain causes erosion of buildings, destruction of crops, and other assets.
