Air and water make up a compound noun. For SV agreement, has does not work. A and B are out.

C turns the entire sentence into a sentence fragment by taking out the verb.

D, I do not see any grammatical issues but it changes the meaning of the sentence. The phenomena in the sentence continues today. By using the simple past tense, the sentence would mean that these events happened in the past, but do not continue.

E has the SV agreement we're looking for and does not alter the spirit of the sentence.

E is the correct answer
