Moreover, the discharges from recreational and commercial vessels such as trash, fishing gear, ballast water, domestic waste, paints, and other chemicals are also a source of pollution for the beaches as an increased number of such vessels contributes towards the accumulation of waste and pollution from them. The direness of their impact on the beach ecosystem can be judged from the fact that regulations such Clean Boating Act, Clean Water Act, National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES), Vessel General Permit (VGP), etc.
Our electronic waste is filled with a veritable cocktail of toxic materials. Unfortunately, when this e- waste is not recycled and simply thrown out with the ordinary garbage, ultimately ending up in landfill, it means both human health and the environment are at risk. A report by Environment Victoria and Total Environment Centre, Inc. entitled “Tipping Point: Australia’s E-Waste Crisis/2009/Update”states the following effects from materials found in ewaste. Lead. This toxic material has a well-documented history of negative health affects including brain damage, hence it’s removal from paints and petrol.
Pollution is the cause of many problems we are facing today. For example global warming and the ozone layer depletion. This isn’t just harmful to us humans but it is also harmful to the environment and animals, we changed everything. Black smoke in every corner, deforestation, desertification, oil in the depth of our sea. Some don 't really realize how special our planet and our home is.
In addition, reckless individuals are too selfish to spend their time to properly dispose of their waste material. Enough research has been done to prove that sewage contains many kinds of hazardous chemicals, from pharmaceuticals to papers and plastics which are harmful to the environment, wildlife, and humans. What’s more, the sewage carries viruses into water systems such as cholera and typhoid that leads to sickness towards any living creature. Due to the excessive amount of waste that the environment cannot deal with, it acts as the food source for algae, which develops wildly. Not only, algae will take the oxygen out of the water and increase carbon dioxide in which the marine life cannot survive, but also it creates the outlets of a toxin to enter the food chain and harm individuals who consume
The significant amount of buses that can be found roaming around the roads of Metro Manila may be responsible for thousands of premature deaths every year (Vidal, 2014). The air people that breathe in Metro Manila contains pollutants in excess of tolerable levels according to a recent study conducted by the Department of Health in co-operation with the World Health Organization’s Western Pacific Regional Office. The worst victims are the children (Roces, 2002). The effects of being exposed to air which is low in quality is comparable to cigarette smoking and may worsen symptoms of heart failure (Vidal, 2014). There are numerous diseases that may be caused by air pollution and the predominant cause of death appears to be cardiovascular disease (Vidal,
Human beings are the main cause of differnt pollution in our earth. Those pollution can be air pollution, water pollution and sound pollution. Our athmosphere is polluted deliverately or undeliberately. Some of exammple of deliberate action are like those industries and highly authorized countries who damage the environment while having good knowledge about its cause. And the undeliberate action is like small scale farmer who use artifical fertilizer wiht out having any idea about its side effect on the soil and water bodies.
The sewage water would mix with the pipelines and thus, it would pollute the water of the agriculture and the drinking water. Moreover, the pollution of water would lead to the poor health of the people. The people would suffer from toxicity and the water pollution would lead to the increase of the mortality rate in children. The water pollution is a very threatening problem and thus ,the society ahs to start to act accordingly to address this problem. (AUC, 2011) The Nile river is one of the most important and crucial sources of life in Egypt.
Pollution is defined by Merriam-Webster as the action of polluting especially by environmental contamination with man-made waste. Every day millions of people are finding way to slowly damage the environment by being wasteful of resources, contaminating the fresh and salt waters, and by creating loud noises that are harmful to one’s health. The causes of pollution from the air, water, and noise continue to negatively impact the environment, animals, and people. The contamination of each area continues to increase daily and, if not addressed. will continue to have long lasting negative impacts on the Earth.
