    where pollution comes from

    Do you mind translating this paragraph?

    Motor vehicles are the fastest growing source of air pollution today, punping out a toxic mixture of health threatening pollutants. Traffic fumes are largely responsible for the increasing number of smogs which pollute our towns, cities and rural areas.

    Industry, a lot of pollutants are released into the atmosphere by industrial processes. For example, when coal is burnt in power stations to generate electricity, sulphur dioxide and nitrous oxides are produced. These are the two major gases which cause acid rain.

    Waste disposal, when rubbish is burned, the smoke and gases producedoften contain pollutants such as dioxins, which are a threat to human health and the environment.

    Thanks, I hope it isn't much trouble.

    Автотанспорт - наиболее быстрорастущий сегодня источник загязнения, выбрасывающий в воздух ядовитую смесь опасных для здоровья веществ. Выхлопные газы в основном ответствены за появление смога, загрязняющего наши города и сельскую местность.

    Промышленность. Множество загрязнителей выбрасывается в атмосферу при промышленном производстве. Например, когда электростанции сжигают уголь для получения электричества, выделяется диоксид серы и оксиды азота. Это основные газы, вызывающие кислотный дождь.

    Waste disposal, when rubbish is burned, the smoke and gases producedoften contain pollutants such as dioxins, which are a threat to human health and the environment.
    Утилизация мусора. Когда сжигается мусор, получающийся дым и газы часто содержат такие загрязнители, как диоксины, которые опасны для здоровья человека и окружающей среды.
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?
