The cause of this was a nasty toxin called microcystin. Microcystin appears because of human pollution and fertilizers that flow into rivers and lakes which then lead to the ocean. Cancer-causing chemicals called PCBs and pesticides like DDT are in marine mammals ' fatty tissues and they cause serious harm. 2. Many health departments encourage people not to swim 72 hours after it rains because the coastal waters are polluted from urban runoff, leaking sewage from sewage pipes and overflowing sewer manholes.
The main impact of animal extinction is from loss of habitat created naturally and by humans. Natural loss of habitat is when other animals invade other areas, changes in weather and natural disasters occur. Some different ways that habitat loss happens are from humans, it happens in three forms, which include habitat deconstructions also known as mass deforestation, habitat fragmentation which separates animals from other animals and food, and finally, habitat degradation caused by pollution. However, the most significant threat of habitat loss is human destruction; it causes the most damage to the ecosystem. Humans break down the land for their uses such as making homes, towns, or businesses.
Terrestrial pollution is the containing of the land through dumping of waste and garbage and the presentation of toxins into the into the environment, in other words terrestrial pollution is the destruction of the earth’s surface area ground either directly or indirectly by human activities , also the harmful concentration of substances that are beyond the environment’s capacity to handle. Land pollution is the largest problem faced in Tembisa and it has become bad enough, it damages the soil and this is caused by the overpopulation of people in this township as a result of informal settlement that is also a problem for the Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality and the government of the Gauteng province.

Air pollution causes respiratory problems in people and animals. Pollutants in the air can cause brain damage when exposed in great amounts (Air Pollution). In certain rural countries people wear mask to filter the air because factories emit so much pollution into the air. Many countries don't have proper water filtration systems and the pollution dumped into water is ingested by people and they could get sick and die. When pollution is dumped into water, fish are likely to ingest the pollutant and people eat the fish in countries with little food regulation, this can cause harmful effects to the humans.
The mine wastes were deposited along the 620 stretch of the river, leading to great loss of animal life and vegetation. The pollution is regarded as the most destructive environmental disaster. The main type of depletion at the mine is the loss of minerals and other natural resources such as vegetation. Compare and contrast the views of (a) an ecological ethic, (b) Blackstone's ethic of environmental rights, and (c) a utilitarian ethic of pollution control. Which view seems to you to be the more adequate?
This situation not only defile the environment but also will cause a stink surrounding circumstances and thus attracting the attention of pests such as rats and flies in which these animals also are carriers of dangerous diseases such as cholera. Consequently, garbage-infested areas make daily life uncomfortable. Food and drinks are constantly exposed to germs carried by flies. Families with children also received adverse effects of uncontrolled land fills. Furthermore, the water reservoir in land fill has become mosquito to breeding grounds.
Forests: When acid rain falls onto the forest floor, it is absorbed by the soil. If the soil is not able to neutralise the acid, the acid will change the condition and characteristics of the soil. It will cause certain toxic substances, such as aluminium, to be released; it will dissolve and wash away nutrients and helpful minerals before trees can absorb them; and, if the forest is often confronted with acidic fog at high altitudes, it will strip away essential nutrients from leaves. All of these factors combined weaken the tree and cause slower growth, injury and in some cases, death of the tree, especially when combined with other environmental factors such as air pollution or cold
Crop dusting, pest killers and fertilizer dust are all released into the air for farming purposes. This causes haze to occur and people to fall sick. Secondly, water plays an important role in our daily lives and also to marine animals. Without clean water, there will be a lot of inconvenience to human. For example, they may suffer from diarrhea, food
Industry is to blame for the biggest pollution disaster in the whole world. Heavy metals like Fe, Zn, Cu, Pb, As etc. are come from industrialized plants which are very much harmful for land and human being. High level of radionuclide like nitrogen and phosphorus can be found surrounding farm centers containing high population densities of livestock. Pesticides also soak into the soil and leaving lasting effects.
