AIR POLLUTION IN FLORIDA Student's Name Institutional Affiliation Abstract The rise in the number of industries and chemicals emitted in Florida is in an alarming state which has contributed to the environmental degradation. The control pattern of air pollution mainly relies on the type and nature on of the sources of pollution. Most importantly air pollution needs to be controlled more in areas that are profoundly affected for example in industries handling petroleum refinery and steel industries. The following topics got discussed in details; sources of air pollution problems associated with air pollution and the strategies to be used in controlling air pollution. Introduction Air pollution is defined as the presence of hazardous pollutants in the atmosphere. Therefore a pollutant is the presence of liquids gaseous substances or solids in the atmosphere in large and concentrated amounts to levels that are harmful to both the humans and the pollutants and the dangers arising from it.

Therefore impacting strict rules that require the act adopting more environmentally friendly means of producing electricity and applying coal washing technique are some of the efficient ways of reducing air pollution which has affected the lives of Florida residents.
