Humans also release toxic gases into the atmosphere done by combusting fuel fossil used at home, industry, and other activities. Transportations are one of the most important of the most important contributor to air and water pollution causing changes in climate pattern variations. Humans good consumption demands the use of energy and many companies rely on forests that help to develop agriculture, farming, and develop ways to invest in infrastructure that also release greenhouse gases. Natural forces as earth orbit, ocean movement, sunlight getting into the planet, and the waken forces of volcanoes may contribute to climate change that even with shifts of precipitation systems, ice met at the poles, and sea level water rise become noticeable worldwide. The change in climate patters can generate negative reactions in human’s health, air, and water pollution will increase.
