Air pollution is a product of everyday activities like driving or using electricity, which cause the release of carbon dioxide and other gases into Earth's atmosphere. This increases the "greenhouse effect"â€”when heat radiating from Earth's surface is trapped and causes the planet to warm up. If this warming continues, we could eventually see further melting of the polar ice caps and a rise of coastal water levels!
