The fragility of the environment
The widespread of non-renewable sources of energy has serious repercussions on our health and environment. Thermoelectric power stations, factories and motor vehicles that emit nitrogen oxide and carbon dioxide cause acid rain and damage to our respiratory systems. Motor vehicles also produce leas, carbon monoxide and hydrocarbons generating smog which is harmful to our health. Refrigerator gases and sprays reduce the ozone layer causing an increase in ultraviolet radiation. Together these factors contribute to raising the average temperature of the atmosphere through the greenhouse effect, which in turn lead to an overall alteration in climatic balances. Every sustainable architectural design should set itself the task of reducing pollution by supporting the maximum saving of energy, using recycled materials wherever possible and employing bio-climatic technologies.
