People have been polluting air since the time they learnt to use fire, but the anthropogenic air pollution has rapidly increased since industrialization. In older days there were famine, starvation, horses and buggies fire places that spewed forth sort from burning soft coal and wood and water contaminated with micro-organisms that contributed to air pollution. But the people were so few and the land so vast that these excesses (insults) could be absorbed without serious consequences. Today, of the more than five billion (over 500 crore) people of whom many are maintaining a high standard of living using more energy and products than before - has resulted in more toxic wastes. The enormous industrial growth, a measure of development is mainly responsible for the high standard of living and this in turn is greately exploiting the nat-ural resources and is a major contributor to the pollution loads in the world.
