Our planet could potentially flood if this trend does not stop. It would not only hurt the habitats of polar animals, but also endangers all of Earth’s creatures and humanity as a whole. Today’s top resources, being coal, oil, and natural gas, are terrible for humanity, animals, and plants alike. There has to be better options for the well-being of our wonderful earth. Even though fossil fuels are the world’s main source of energy and are considered to be the best option, there are cleaner, more efficient forms such as wind,
Pollutants such as carbon monoxide inhibits the capacity of blood carry oxygen to organs and tissues, and people with chronic heart disease may experience chest pain when carbon monoxide levels are too high. At very high levels, carbon monoxide impairs vision, manual dexterity, and learning abilities which can be fatal. To avoid the effects of acid rain, an implementation to reduce consumption of fossil fuels should be administered. To reduce the effects of acid rain, there must be a reduction on the amount of pollutants we directly emit into the air. Air pollution is the root cause of acid rain, and with power plants releasing massive amounts of sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides when fossil fuels are burned, we are adding more flame to the effects of acid rain.
Companies have tried alternate methods to minimize air pollution, oil spills, etc. However, there is a very harmful system known as fracking. These companies are not noticing that this technique does the complete opposite. There is a big fear that changing to cheap fracked natural gas to replace coal could backfire and could worsen the situation even further. Environmental groups are afraid that if hydraulic fracturing were to happen, they believe that contaminating underground water supplies could affect global warming 20 times more (Davenport 1).
Environmental pollution is tangled with the unsustainable anthropogenic activities, resulting substantial public health problems. (Khan, 2004). My research is all about the effects of environment pollution in the perspective of air pollution, water and land/soil waste pollution on human by diseases and problems, animals and trees/ plants. Water pollution is the contamination of natural water bodies by chemical, physical, radioactive or pathogenic microbial substances. Those polluted water causes health hazard and death of human being, aquatic life and also disturbs the production of different crops.
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.
For example, in the Niger delta region of Nigeria, pipeline vandalism has wreaked havoc to the economy, environment, and health. Illegal waste oil dumping Many organizations including oil companies, are mostly driven by the money making benefit from their business and try to avoid any financial losses including money spent in taking care of the environment from where their businesses run. Therefore, most illegal waste oil dumping occurs in the oceans by these organizations who do not want to invest in the cost of degrading their oil waste. Natural disasters Oil spill may sometimes be caused by natural disturbances in the earth crust such as hurricanes and earthquakes leading to eruptions in the oil wells. Natural seeps (geological seeps) from the ocean floor/bed representing one of the single largest sources of oil pollution (Oil Splat , 2008)
This toxic material has a well-documented history of negative health affects including brain damage, hence it’s removal from paints and petrol. The introduction of lead to the food chain and atmosphere (through lead combustion) are the primary causes of health problems in humans. Lead in the environment disrupts the natural functions of water and soil systems. Mercury. Mercury has a toxic affect on both human and environmental health.
Humans have had a detrimental impact on this worlds environment, whether it’s pollution, global warming, deforestation, ocean acidification, or the thousands of other ways humans are destroying the environment. Over the years humans have done more bad than good for this environment. Humans everyday activities that may seem harmless, are destroying the Earth.These environmental modifications might become a greater cause of global species extinction than direct habitat destruction. The first problem is air pollution, which is the emission of toxic fumes into the air. Everyone contributes to air pollution in their own way.
Destroying the world to survive: POLLUTION Background The presence and use of substances that are harmful and poisonous to the environment, especially being contained in the water, air and soil are factors that contribute to destroying the environment. Pollution continues to be an important public health concern in our societies. Since the development of Industries within the societies our environment and health conditions have been endangered by the high levels of pollution. The sudden increase in population has led to many informal and unhealthy polluted settlements. Though there are types of pollutions, it has come to my senses that the societies that we live in today are in danger of facing all kinds of pollutions because we human beings contribute to the environment
