This graph depicts the causes of air contamination in the United Kingdom between the year 1990 to 2005.
Overall, Industrial and total air pollutants have significantly decreased throughout the years whereas both a rising and a decrease tendency could be seen in the pollution brought on by domestic households and transportation.
The total amount of toxins discharged into the atmosphere had been decreased linearly to roughly 3 million tonnes until 1999; later dropped with a modest decrease till 2005. Pollutants released by industry peaked in 1990 and fell dramatically in the following years (up to 2005.), from 5.5 million tonnes to 2 million tonnes.
The statistics for domestic and transportation emissions appeared to be identical at the start of the period, however, the amount of air pollutants from residential sources decreased approximately to 0.9 million tonnes by the year 2005, whereas transportation emissions climbed somewhat 0.1 million tonnes in the last years.
