Air Pollution emissions are toxins that cause immediate human health problems including heart disease, stroke and respiratory problems. The main toxins include carbon monoxide (CO), hydrocarbons (HC), and oxides of nitrogen (NOx). GHG emissions, mainly CO2, are not toxic but they magnify the Earths green house effect causing global warming and climate change with possible catastrophic consequences.
