Carbon dioxide emissions are very high and continue to increase. 3 GAS-PHASE POLLUTANTS A large variety of gas-phase substances are emitted to the atmosphere from both anthropogenic and natural sources. Hundreds of different chemicals may be present in the polluted air of the many metropolitan areas that exist on the planet. Over 400 different gas-phase species have been identified in automobile exhaust alone, and many additional substances are produced as a result of atmospheric chemistry. Only a relatively small number of the many hundreds of gaseous substances found in the atmosphere are either toxic enough or present in sufficient concentrations to directly or indirectly cause harm to humans or their environment.
