People complain about pollution from factories, cars, global warming, and the melting of polar ice caps, yet many people disregard the dangerous that come with fracking. Fracking is the process of injecting liquid at high pressure into subterranean rocks, and/or boreholes to force open existing fissures and extract oil or gas. Fracking is causing an epidemic economically and environmentally. Fracking is continuously destroying the earth day by day. From the endless fracking today’s economy is depleting.
Endangered specie populations in Mexico Introduction: Humans have drastically modified wildlife by polluting the earth we live in. Pollution is one of the major insidious threats to the environment, it ranges from obvious action, such as dumping in rivers and lakes to sprayed undetected chemicals. However, if the effect is permanent or short term the outcome does not change. Pollution changes the balance of ecosystems which causes numerous animals to become extinct. For example, the Bald eagle, peregrine falcon, and brown pelican all became endangered or extinct prior to scientists finding out that the chemical DDT, a chemical used largely in the United States as a pesticide.
Mining the hydrothermal vents could make it so that some very bad things could happen to our earth. Mining is very bad idea until we finish all of the studies about hydrothermal vents because very bad things could happen to fish and the communities nearby the mining. First, The vents are used as homes for species. Mining could wipe out all of the yet to be discovered species. Mining will pollute the water and let out toxins that can kill species and communities near by.
Coral reefs are dying at an alarming rate thanks to many factors, mostly caused by humans. For instance, when we pollute the earth and our oceans by burning greenhouse gases, we cause climate change. This affects the coral as they can’t withstand the water raising by only a few degrees. This often causes coral bleaching, which kills these animals. Also, storms can destroy reefs, also often caused by humans affecting the environment.
The long-term exposure to air pollution can cause cancer, and damage to your body systems such as the immune system and endocrine system. A major reason why preventing air pollution is important is because it damages the environment. Toxic air pollutants has the ability to form acid rain that can destroy trees, plants, soils and make bodies of water harmful to humans and animals that depend on water to survive. These effects are dangerously threating to humans as society relies on soil to grow food and water to use and drink. As more air pollutions are pumped into the sky, the Earth’s atmosphere trapping heat from air pollutions, this is known as global warming.
Conclusion To conclude, littering is a serious global problem, littering is caused by people because they are lazy, lack environmental knowledge or because there aren’t enough waste bags around. Littereing can affect many ecosystems and creatures and can emit greenhouse gases therefore causing global warming. In order to stop littering, people can use reusable bags when shopping.

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.
Our environment had been endangered of becoming unsafe, threatening, and even deadly. “The water we drink, the food we eat, the very air that we breathe, are threatened with pollution. Our parks are overcrowded, our seashores overburdened. Green fields and dense forests are disappearing.” Johnson stresses that the health of people and environment is at risk because Americans have allowed for the destruction of nature to get out of hand, and causing both the Earth and human health at risk of becoming an ugly America, due to –as Johnson references- the “Ugly American” (“Great Society”). Less than a month after Johnson’s speech The Clean Air Act was passed and The Wilderness Act of 1964 was in action in efforts to control air pollution and protect land from destruction of human activity (“Major Great Society”).Johnson puts an emotional touch over the situation of nature and its importance towards his audience by saying, “And once man can no longer walk with beauty or wonder at nature his spirit will wither and his sustenance be wasted.” If Americans continue to pollution the environment will in turn become an element of disaster for the well-being of people and their surroundings (“Great
Agriculture immensely adds to the nutrient and chemical pollution due to the fertilizers used on crops. When rains or winds come through the fertilizer is carried from the fields into the rivers and streams that then lead into the ocean(Effect of Runoff). Red tide had been a huge issue that is unpreventable and caused by dinoflagellates (Red Tide). Red Tide is a type of algal bloom that takes up oxygen in the water. When the oxygen levels in the ocean are lowered it can kill many plants which is very unfortunate for the manatees considering they are herbivores and with their food supply being depleted they may suffer from starvation.
Not only sea animals, but animals all over the world might extinct or become endangered because of pollution. If our future generation has less food, people from all over the world will suffer from starvation. They will not only suffer from the lack of food, but also from the disease that pollution causes. Our world will become something so frightening and unsuitable for any living
