To understand Earth's natural environment we need to learn and study. earth is our only home, the blue planet we need to survive - Nature education on air. Get science based facts.  You can find environment pollution everywhere, also ocean pollution and land pollution and water pollution. River pollution is a big problem because of the outtake of drinking water. Car pollution is rising with every car, some of the old cars causing water contamination with oil. Again BSB show you the causes of pollution, the effects of air pollution and chemical pollution. BSB pollution research has to update its numbers all the time. The science pollution gets wider with every day. Polluted drinking water in many cities around the Earth. BSB explains how recycling reduces pollution and why pollution causes climate change. Often soil pollution is caused by fertilizer.

Dioxins facts

Furans facts
What are Dioxins and Furans?
Dioxins and furans are a group of chemical compounds with similar chemical structures and biological characteristics.
Dioxin consists of a pair of benzene rings, two oxygen atoms and four chlorine atoms. The chemical DDT also has two benzene rings and contains chlorine atoms! DDT and dioxin share several characteristics: Both DDT and dioxin are toxic in very small quantities.
Both do NOT degrades in our environment - meaning they exist forever, indefinitely.
Dioxin and DDT dissolve and accumulate in fat tissue.
Dioxins and furans are an unwanted, very dangerous byproduct of combustion, like forest fires and from man-made sources like coal fired power plants, backyard burn barrels, smoking, and industrial processes as steel production.

There are 75 compounds in the dioxin family and 135 compounds in the furan family. All have varying degrees of toxicity in comparison to the most toxic 2,3,7,8-TCDD.
Melting point 305 - 306 (C)
Thermal decomposition 700 (C)

According to the EPA, dioxins and furans released into the air during combustion can be carried long distances before settling to the Earth's surface.
So Dioxins can be found almost everywhere at low levels.

Any of several carcinogenic or teratogenic heterocyclic hydrocarbons that occur as impurities in petroleum-derived herbicides. a general name for a family of chlorinated hydrocarbons, C12H4Cl4O2, esp. the isomer TCDD, a toxic by-product of pesticide manufacture. Compare Agent Orange
Talking about levels:
The unit of measure commonly used for dioxins and furans is
parts per trillion, = ppt
To put "parts per trillion" into perspective, one part per trillion can be considered equal to:
One cent in $10 billion
One square foot of the state of Indiana

Why do we talk about such small amounts?
Dioxin is so toxic that you need only minuscule amounts to trigger cancer effects, DNA change, birth defects.
Dioxin bio-accumulates in the human body through animal fats, meats and milk, breathing in dioxin polluted air, through the skin.
Emptying a trash burning barrel without, rubber gloves, and a gas mask, will reduce your lifespan, because you get in contact with different dioxins and furans!

There were many accidents where Dioxins were produced and released into the environment. A real big accident occurred in Seveso, Italy.
The Seveso disaster got its name because Seveso, Italy was the community most affected. Seveso is a small town with a population of 17,000 in 1976. A reactor heated up, a relief valve opened and 6 tonnes of material were distributed over an 18 km area,[6] including 1 kg of 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxin (TCDD)
Within days a total of 3300 animals were found dead, mostly poultry and rabbits. Emergency slaughtering commenced to prevent TCDD from entering the food chain, by 1978 over 80,000 animals had been slaughtered. 15 children were quickly hospitalized with skin inflammation. By the end of August Zone A had been completely evacuated and fenced, 1600 people of all ages had been examined and 447 were found to suffer from skin lesions or chloracne.
Normally, when babies are born, there is a relation of
106 male babies to 100 female babies.
After the Seveso disaster the relation change totally to
100 females to 52 male babies born in the region. It is quite obvious that the hormon levels in humans were drastically changed by this Dioxin disaster.

Polychlorinated dibenzodioxins (PCDDs), or simply dioxins, are a group of polyhalogenated compounds which are significant because they act as environmental pollutants. They are commonly referred to as dioxins for simplicity in scientific publications because every PCDD molecule contains a dioxin skeletal structure. Typically, the p-dioxin skeleton is at the core of a PCDD molecule, giving the molecule a dibenzo-p-dioxin ring system.
Members of the PCDD family have been shown tobioaccumulate in humans and wildlife due to their lipophilic properties, and are known teratogens, mutagens, and suspected human carcinogens.

How does coal form?
Nature education online: Science chemistry on line education: how fossil fuel coal forms
Coal is a fossil fuel = carbon
- it took millions of years to form coal.
Coal burning plants ranked 3rd in the nation for dioxin pollution.

BSB Conservation education online on air pollution provided by Peter Bonenberger, founder of Bear Springs Blossom Nature education: smog over Los Angeles is hurting humans and nature
Smog = air pollution often contains dioxins
A lot of chemicals are harmful to humans Dioxins and furans are a few of them.

Conservation education: coal layer produced by huge amounts of plants, ferns, trees - millions of years ago - so we call them fossil fuels
It took millions of years to form coal
Burning fossil fuels leads to air pollution and produces dioxins and furans.
More energy consumption produces more air pollution, more water pollution and reduces the Earth's natural resources for the next generation

60000 plastic bags are thrown away in the US every day causing big pollution of landscape, water ways, rivers, endangering ocean animals and native wildlife.
Bear Springs Blossom Nature Conservation fights plastic pollution with education and information.
Burning plastics with low temperatures creates dioxins
endangering our rivers and creeks, endangering ocean animals and native wildlife
Burning these plastics produces high amounts of dioxins = killing life - slowly!
