Air pollution is mainly emitted though the exhaust of motor vehicles, the combu stion of fossil fuels, the burning of coal and oil most of the pollution from coal burning on earth comes from. This pollution comes from cars, factories, homes, and power plants that burn fossil fuels such as oil, coal, natural gas, and gasoline global warming pollution knows no boundaries it enters the atmosphere, spreads across the globe, and traps heat around the earth for 50-200 years after it is emitted. Air pollution is measured by the air quality index (aqi), which scales pollution levels from 0 to 500 and assigns a color to different number levels to measure how hazardous the air quality is on any given day (figure 4.
