Every year world industry pollutes the atmosphere with about 1500 million tons of dust and other harmful substances. Many cities suffer from smog, the oxygen balance upsets. Cars are polluting the air by exhaust gases and other dangerous chemicals.
Virtually not only human beings pollute the air but nature itself can cause damage,for example volcanic eruptions.
