Water, air,and land are all affected by pollution.There are different types of pollution categorized based on the part of the environment which they affect or result which the particular pollution causes. In the following paragraphs, we will enumerate the consequences of releasing pollutants in the environment. We cause most of the pollution and we will suffer the consequences if we don’t stop. Water pollution can be defined in many ways. Usually,
Most important commercial sources of sand and gravel are river floods, river channels and glacial deposits. Goddard (2007) further noted that soil extraction and processing have significant impacts on scenic landscapes. Excessive extraction intensifies coastal and exposed hillside erosion, causing accumulation of seawater upstream of rivers, leaving the coasts more vulnerable to extreme weather conditions. Soil mining contributes to construction of buildings and development but can cause permanent loss of soil as well as major habitat destruction (Goddard, 2007). Kuttipuran (2006) reviewed soil mining in Indian communities and explained that as urban areas grow, less wood is used with more concrete structures being required leading to demand for low cost sand.
Several efforts have been made over recent years to maintain a safe and clean environment. However, environmental pollution is getting worst and poses a major threat to the Earth. Environmental pollution is “the contamination of the physical and biological components of the Earth to such an extent that normal environmental processes are adversely affected” (Kemp, 1998, p. 129). There are five known pollution which is in the form of air, water, land, noise and light (refer to Figure 1 in Appendix 1). The first type of pollution is air pollution.
In this essay, I am going to discuss about air pollution. Recently, air pollution has been a big issue in the whole world. What is air pollution? Air pollution is the contamination of our clean air due to unclean gases that are produced by ourselves. There are some causes of air pollution.
Abstract When we talk about renewable energy sources, we must understand that all sources of energy are derived from nature. Both coal and petroleum are extracted from nature and can be used in the way that they are for creating energy. However, crude oil is usually refined and processed into gasoline, petroleum and other products before it is used. In the same way, coal has to be converted into other forms of energy to use it fully. In that sense, the renewable sources are those sources that can be used again and again as they are available in plenty and are not going to perish anytime soon.
This quote explain how this industries contributed to water pollution. What's marine pollution? Marine pollution is the contamination of seawater. Do we know what cause marine pollution. Well In the essay on water pollution: sources, effects and control of water pollution by Puja Mondal, explains “ Oceanic pollution is caused by ship-generated discharges of oil and petroleum products, noxious liquids, packaged dangerous good, sewage, Garbage etc.” Ships contaminated in many ways our
Such loss of fertility ultimately results in changes in the ecological balances of the environment due to reduction in plant growth. Lastly, noise pollution can harm the mental wellbeing. The effects of industrial pollution are far reaching and liable to affect the environment for many years to come. Countries facing sudden and rapid increase of industrial pollution found it to be a serious problem which has to be prevented and brought under control
The causes of air pollution varies from outdoors air pollution to indoors air pollution and causes harmful health effects that may stay with us and cause further complications. There are causes that can be prevented and it is imperative for us to take charge and make an effort to prevent further harm to both the environment and the people. Preventive measures can come from the society or the individual. Even small efforts by an individual counts, if more people put in the effort, the problems we face from air pollution could be greatly reduced. After all, “When we heal the earth, we heal ourselves” – David
A big environmental issue today is pollution. Although there are others kinds of pollution, the three main types are air, land, and water pollution. Air pollution is caused by vehicles and factories releasing harmful gases into the air. This kind of pollution is causes by humans when they construct buildings, use different forms of transportation, grow crops, and more. Although, natural disasters such as volcanic eruptions and wildfires also pollute the air, they only pollute the air where the event occurred.
Environmental pollution is the result of improper disposal, which shows forth our unsustainable usage of resources. This is evident with the large amount of plastic irresponsibly disposed in the sea, the excessive burning of fossil fuels that contributes to air pollution and all the unsustainable management of factories leading to large amounts of waste material discharged into water bodies causing heavy hazardous contamination. All these excessive pollutants added into the environment, disrupts the natural cycle leads to a myriad of negative repercussions and drawing attention to invoke change so as to prevent what is preventable in very first place. We have seen from history how environmental pollution can lead to irreversible long-term damage: Love Canal Case and the derivation of Minamata disease. In recent years, we see how soil
