DMPQ: Nitrogen pollution is more dangerous than carbon pollution. How nitrogen affects our ecosystem. (Science)

:  Nitrogen is the most abundant gas in the atmosphere and it is in inert form. But when it converts into reactive form like ammonia, nitrous oxide and nitrogen di oxide, it become dangerous for the ecosystem in many ways.

  1. Nitrogenous gases also play an important role in global climate change. Nitrous oxide is a particularly potent greenhouse gas as it is over 300 times more effective at trapping heat in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide.
  2. Nitrogen emissions such as ammonia, nitrogen oxide and nitrous oxides contribute to particulate matter and acid rain. These cause respiratory problems and cancers for people and damage to forests and buildings
  3. Nitrogen from fertiliser, effluent from livestock and human sewage boost the growth of algae and cause water pollution.
