Coal Carbon dioxide, Sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide,

Coal is the dirtiest
fossil foil in the world that emitting carbon-dioxide in the atmosphere and
causes a greater harm to the environment and human health. Coal is a
combustible carbonaceous rock, formed from accumulated vegetable matter that
has been altered by decay and various amounts of heat and pressure over
millions of years. Contribution of coal in the economy of a country is
essential. But the environmental impact of coal mining is immense to the
atmosphere and human and other ecosystems in the earth. Coal is the primary
source of energy that uses to meet the huge demand of energy that is to be
consumed to meet the development of the society. There are mainly two way of
excavation of this fossil called opencast and underground mining. Both of these
procedures are extremely harmful to our environment especially to our
atmosphere and aquatic ecosystem. Coal is mainly used for energy sector which
is considered as the fuel of development of a nation. This is the most
available and used fossil foil in the earth. In this age of development coal
industry is a major sector of industrial for both developed and developing
countries. But this process of development is immensely deteriorating the
environment.  The use of electricity
generated by coal has great impact n health and wellbeing of people. It has
created thousands of employment opportunities to the people of the modern time.
But use of coal to the power generation has created thousands of problems to
the human health and to the ecosystem we are belonging. Air pollution caused by
the coal combustion is prone people to different types of damages to the human
health such as cardiovascular diseases, respiratory problems and abnormal
neuropsychological development to the children. Most importantly the contribution
to the coal combustion to the climate change and the anthropogenic gas emission
has the most important things to be considered. Among the pollution by coal
combustion the air pollution is more deathly to the human and to the
environment. When coal is burn to produce electricity different air borne
pollutants are emitted such as Carbon dioxide, Sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxide,
acids gases, mercury, arsenic, nickel and others. Before use coal in producing
energy at first it has to be mined then washed and transport. After using in
the power plant it is to stored or disposed. All of the procedures stated above
is threatening to the environment and ecosystem. The disposal of coal mining
and burning to the energy sector harmfully affected to the wetlands and human
health. Throughout the life cycle of his fossil its disposes number of
pollutants and causes threat to the environment.
