Abstract


Climate change, resulting from an increasing concentration of Gases (CO2, SO2 and NO2) in the atmosphere caused by the use of fossil fuels in the industry, is now an established phenomenon and its effects on health have been observed in most parts of the world including Pakistan. The environmental concerns of Pakistan are associated with the adverse impact of expansion in population, change in the living norms of individuals, modern advancement and construction of house schemes, increment in transportation, no public awareness of environmental related education, mismanagement of natural resources, widely unplanned urban and industrial expansions are the core hard issues. Studies of air and water have revealed an alarming air quality especially in most urban and industrial areas and also serious deterioration of surface and ground water quality was identified. The reason for this degradation is emission of CO2 from the industrial sector. This investigation is to identify the contribution in fuel
sources like solid, liquid and gas in the industries with overall emission of CO2 in the atmosphere and its
impact on human health
