By a male, 16-21 years old, in Nairobi, Kenya
Map of AIR POLLUTION Air pollution is caused by unnecessary noise fumes and chemicals produced in the air. In most cases air is polluted by dangerous fumes from indstries and big factories. In the other hand it is also polluted by vehicle which play loud music and hooting all the time everywhere even when necessary.
