urban areas , air pollution results from combustion (burning ) processes . In spite of great problems caused by air population in cities , authorities and citizens do not pay much attention to these issues and negative impact of poison gases on their health . Globalization and urbanization processes bring enormous benefits to urban populations , but they also result in diseases and increasing number of deaths caused by dirty air and unhealthy environment . I do not agree with the author that poverty , as a result of globalization , is the main cause of air pollution . Poor and rich classes always exist in the society depending on modes of production , the distribution of economic and social resources
I suppose that the main cause of air pollution and global warming is social indifference and apathy towards environmental problems and their impact on the entire population . For instance , buying and selling cheap second hand vehicles , people are driven by personal gain living for their own benefit only . In this case , we should not blame such phenomenon as globalization , but ourselves who pollute and dirty the air everyday , from year to year . It affects all areas of our life : politics economics and a social sphere . For our civilization , it is important to find appropriate solutions to reduce urban pollution effect and safe live on our planet
