Impact Of Transportation On Climate

By | May 28, 2010

The Transportation affects the climate a lot. It causes exploitation to the environment in many ways. They are:

  • Air Pollution: Here because of transportation many gases are being produced. The vehicles run with the help of energy which is produced from burning of fossil fuels like carbon, coal and petroleum. The gases which are released will pollute the air and cause respiratory diseases. No rainfall occurs because of deforestation which leads to the water shortage. Even the poisonous gases like carbon monoxide CO causes respiratory diseases by contaminating the air. Because of this pollution the ozone layer gets depleted and ultra violet rays fall directly on the earth’s surface which may result in many diseases.
  • Noise Pollution: Noise Pollution is due to horns and engines. Noise Pollution distracts our concentration, and makes us deaf. Construction of the vehicle creates noise by using large machines and even the operation also makes noise.
  • Soil Pollution: Soil pollution occurs because of erosion. Digging the soil for construction of the roads creates erosion. Even the coastal areas are made into ports which also creates erosion. Removing the mountain tops for constructing high ways also results in erosion.

These are the adverse affects on climate due to transportation.
