AIR POLLUTION AND ITS IMPACT ON CLIMATE CHANGES IN IRAQ
 
The issue of air pollution and its impact on climate change is a subject of great global and local interest. Significant attention is being paid to Iraq by distributing a range of observation and monitoring stations for atmospheric concentrations of gases and pollutants, with permanent pollution centers or sources in Iraq and the most prominent causes being examined, as well as the impact of airborne pollutants on climate component values This was clearly reflected in the climate changes, the most prominent feature of which was the rise in temperatures and the lack of rain fall in Mosul, Baghdad and Basra stations, and this was clearly reflected in the environment, where drought and death of animals were evident, especially in the southern marshes of Iraq. The study developed a range of ways to reduce air pollution and control climate change by adopting a range of means to adapt to it, thus classifying Iraq among the countries with fragile ecosystems, which have a quick impact on air pollutants.

Keywords: Air Pollution, Climate Change, Iraq Climate, Global Warming, Environment, Emissions.
