We pollute the nature on many different areas, therefore there are many different kinds of pollution. We are all familiar with air pollution, soil pollution and water pollution. But many of us including myself are not aware or haven’t been aware of pollution types like noise pollution, light pollution, visual pollution, personal pollution and I believe we could find even more kinds. The most familiar type of air pollution is the smoke we can see crawling above factories and cities. We are also aware that the air traffic and traffic in general is a huge factor of the air
Large cities become ‘regional heat islands’, which can alter local weather patterns. • Air Pollution - One of the most obvious differences between an urban and a rural area is the air quality. Due in large part to heavy motor vehicle traffic, and also to energy production, a blanket of smog hangs over many cities. This polluted air is, in addition to being quite ugly, a public health problem. • Water Pollution - When an area is urbanized, the water cycle in the area changes dramatically.
His action will produce pollutions, such as air pollution and water pollution. Air pollution are produced by combination of carbon dioxide and monoxide which produced by the recycling plant. Then the smoke are being released to the air without being filtered properly. Then creates effect such as greenhouse acid, acid rain and etc. the air polluted are breathable but may cause health side effect if the person are exposed for too long.
The main causes of the environmental degradation in the city are the rapid urbanization and the deficiency in the provision and maintenance of housing and infrastructure. Furthermore, these involve the exposure to traffic hazards, lead, air pollution, and the amplification of heat waves of Urban Heat Island. As the increasing reliance on fossil fuels, and as the increasing number of urban consumers and their materials needs, cities contribute to severe hazards on the biosphere including climate change (Agrawal, 2014). A significant rise in the number of urban dwellers has contributed in the slum growth. It is characterized by overcrowding, poor housing, low incomes, a lack of sanitation and safe water, and physical and legal insecurity (Cronin, 2012).
Air pollution has become the world’s largest single environmental health risk. The main reasons behind the degrading air quality are rapid urbanisation, construction activities, increasing population and increasing number of vehicles. The increasing air pollution makes it difficult for human beings to lead a healthier life. It has increased the risks of lung diseases, heart attacks, premature deaths and can even cause DNA mutations. The increasing trend of car ownership and use of vehicles have contributed significantly to this environmental problem.
However, it is not easy to degrade in the nature that plastic pollution can fill the lands and hugely affects the oceans and everybody is affected by that pollutant in some way. In addition, the increasing price of the petroleum prices to manufacture plastics creates a demand to search for durable
On the other hand, it caused many environmental and healthy problems. As a result of the rapid urbanization, a string of problems came up to the top: environmental degradation, unsatisfying living standards and disease spreading. Undoubtedly, those problems have negative effects on people as well as their health. There has
Environmental noise is a worldwide problem. However, the way the problem is dealt with differs greatly from country to country and is very much dependent on culture, economy and politics. The major sources that result in causing noise pollution are industrial noise, human activities and transportation. Noise pollution affects the human mind and body negatively. The lives of the children or the aged become miserable.
The smog from the industries also fills up the steely air and creates a hazardous environment. With Phnom Penh’s environment deteriorating at rapid rate, transportation energy efficiency use, the city’s green space expansion, and waste management should be invested in order to be a more liveable city, which is cleaner and greener.
Although the economy has been developing, the quality of water in Tianjin is decreased year by year. Because of water pollution is getting worse; I have to install a household water purification system, to ensure the domestic water could be used safely. Meanwhile, water must be boiled because this process can ensure the water is harmless to the body. Water pollution not only increased my living costs but also caused a waste of energy. According to the article from "Journal of Environmental Sciences", the concentration of nitrogen and phosphorus in the rivers of Tianjin has been severely exceeded, the concentrations of various metal ions had reached harmful degree to the human body, and the water quality of 56.6% rivers was worse than Grade V. This severe water pollution problem has severely affected the life of all Tianjin residents, including me.
