My name is Walter Pablo and the topic that I chose was Air pollution. A study shows that at least 200,000 people die every year in the United States. Especially in California at least 21,000 people die because they were exposed to air pollution and it’s most attributed to road transportation.
I choose this topic because here in Oakland there is too much air pollution and we can see that not only affects old people but it really affects children and that’s why because they have no idea how to defend themselves.
In one short film source called “Smog Journeys”, the directors talked about how smoke emission affects people. People live in a world where they are surrounded by a lot of smoke. Smoke cause health problems like asthma or coughing. People have to wear masks so they can’t get infected by the smoke that comes out of the factories or the gas that comes out of the cars. When a woman is pregnant and she is exposure to air pollution probably when she gives birth, the baby can vorn with bad health conditions.
In a second source, a website called ” Health & Environmental Effects of Air Pollution.” This website shows us how we can be affected by air pollution and the different health problems this can cause. Irritation in the eyes, nose and throat are some of the problems the Department of Environmental Protection shows us. The children are the most exposed to this problem because they don’t know how to defend themselves. They don’t have anyone to teach them how to defend themselves. When a person inhales air pollution it can cause a heart attack and that person have high chances to die if they don’t try to prevent it.
In a third source, an academic source called “Health effects of Air pollution”, We the people are who cause air pollution. We can cause it when we are working in a factory, we can cause it when we are driving our car or when we see a person smoking; the smoke that comes out is very dangerous. We have to protect ourselves and prevent health conditions that can end up with death. We the human beings cause this problem, when there is a forest fire but we can help to limit all those activities and that way less people will be less exposure to air pollution.
In the last source, which is a news article called “Deaths caused by air pollution” This shows how many people die as a result of air pollution and how it really affects people, especially those living in California. This is a big problem but the people just ignore it, instead of starting to do something about it and find a solution. People die every year because of the dangerous effects of air pollution. When a person is exposed to air pollution it doesn’t matter what age you are, you can get affected and one day you are going to feel symptoms and probably die.
Could you make comments that will help me for the next Process Journal? I would also appreciate any questions or suggestions on what I need to improve.
