“Why do diesel engines vehicles cause pollution?”

 

Every day, you probably hear about how the levels of greenhouse gas concentration in the atmosphere are growing exponentially, and how much of that derives from the use of petroleum vehicles. However, why do such machines cause so much harm? Well, let’s use our scientific mindset to figure this out. Upon analysis, one would be able to obtain that the exhaust gas emitted by vehicles are composed of carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, and hydrocarbons. These pollutants are potent greenhouse gasses, and can not only impinge upon the health of the atmosphere but the health of human society through the instigation of smog and other health hazards.
