    Air pollution, the release of chemicals and particulates into the atmosphere. Common gaseous air pollutants include carbon monoxide,

    Noise pollution or unwanted sounds that are carried by the air, have an irritating and detrimental effect on humans and other animals. Careful planning of streets and buildings in towns and better control over noisy vehicles may add to the control of noise pollution. Noise pollution is a form of Air pollution.

    Water pollution is any chemical, physical or biological change in the quality of water that has a harmful effect on any living thing that drinks or uses or lives (in) it. When humans drink polluted water it often has serious effects on their health. Water pollution can also make water unsuited for the desired use.

    Well they are all pollution

    Air pollution effects humans, animals, plants. It's hard on our bodies, shortens life spans. It stays in the air in our o-zone, and can allow the sun's harmful rays to effect earth more then usual.

    Water pollution also effects humans, animals and plants. It's also hard on our bodies and shortens life spans. Water pollution can carry harmful diseases and chemicals that can kill us. Regardless of where it happens, it all eventually goes into the oceans and is 'recycled' in the water cycle, leading to polluted rain. It also throws off the balance of our fresh water, and salt water, water ways. This is a big harm for people who live and work off of fishing, because water life is very sensitive to change.

    Noise pollution is more annoying then anything. But it can be harmful to our ears, and scare away life such as smaller animals, birds. Plus whereever there is noise pollution, is there is usually other forms of pollution. It's highly unlikely that just the human voice could cause so much noise.

    The greenhouse result's organic and has existed for billions of years. as quickly as we are taking approximately worldwide warming, we are speaking approximately an superior greenhouse result led to via pollutants. In different words, the organic result continues to be in place however the extra greenhouse gasses interior the ambience from fossil fuels and agriculture are inflicting the planet to heat previous what's predicted based at present organic impacts (such through fact the quantity of solar we've become). pollutants from campfires etc became into in all hazard never sufficient to impact climate till fossil fuels all started getting used on great scales in the process the commercial revolution. This better the quantity of CO2 interior the air and due to this we've experienced a warming vogue when you consider that final century. Greenhouse gases are what shield the Earth's temperature. without them, the common temperature of the Earth may be below freezing, so we does not be right here without them. the main greenhouse gas is water vapor, so no longer led to via pollutants. the priority is the increasing quantity of carbon dioxide interior the ambience, yet another greenhouse gas. intake of fossil fuels via human beings seems to be the explanation in the back of this improve. as a fashion to respond to your question, greenhouse gases do no longer reason pollutants; however the upward thrust in one specific greenhouse gas is led to via pollutants.
