Vehicles do pollute air by leaving toxic gases like nitrogen oxides (NOx), carbon monoxide (CO), particulate matter (PM), volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and smaller amounts of other pollutants such as sulphur dioxide (SO2) and ammonia (NH3).They also causes noise pollution as in case of crackers.
You see fire crackers add or increase pollution in air while the former too exist. The noise pollution really in greater extent affects animals and birds. Every time a cracker makes noise animal get feared or birds start chirping and fly off. case The use of firecrackers, has over the years led to many injuries and deaths also. There have been incidents every year of users being blinded, losing body parts, or suffering other injuries, especially during festivities that customarily involve firecrackers.
How can it be justified that industrial and vehicular pollution causing pollution for 24*7 for 365days whereas diwali pollution for few hours that also for 3–4 days are same?? But surely it does intensify the pollution level and enhance the adverse affect on atmosphere
A new report by UNESCO says that more than 2billion children are breathing toxic air mostly live in North India or neighboring countries. Children breathe at twice than adults so they take more toxic air in, thus leading to respiratory diseases, lung problems that affect their physical and cognitive development.
It’s time to change the trend. Diwali is festival of light and not of fire-crackers. Using crackers for diwali started in early 20th century. It’s not the only way to celebrate diwali.
