Pollution, everyone complains about it. So what is it pollution? It happens when impurities contaminate the natural environment; which causes about changes that affect our day to day lifestyles negatively. Pollutants are the main elements or components of pollution which are usually discarded materials of different sorts. Pollution disrupts our ecosystem and the balance in the ecosystem.
Within heavily populated cities, such as those in China, even the smallest of activities could lead to hugely negative effects for the local water bodies. Even with relatively low ecological footprints per capita, the shear volume of citizens could offset that and result in poor environmental outlooks. This is because a large population calls for increases to industry and agriculture, which contribute to water pollution individually (Shao et al., 2006). Industrialization introduces so many chemicals into the waters, and the fertilizer and pesticides used in industrial farming also greatly pollutes water. Such activities have created a reality where toxicants are now mainly absorbed directly from food because of the heavy contamination of water sources, such as lakes and fresh water bodies.
Introduction: Consumerism has an incredible effect on the society. In order to keep up with others and the world, people want to buy and spend more than they did before. This practice has been going on since the last many years and therefore this continuously increasing demand has turned the balance of the earth upside down. The imbalance of the Earth now displays itself in many forms of climatic changes. This high level of consumption has affected the planet in many ways: large amount of energy input is required, large quantity of pollution is produced during production and equally large amount of waste at disposal of the product.
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.
One of the major problems in urban places is the disposal of wastes. These unwanted materials can cause serious problems. These accumulation is a threat to the health of many people and waste decays can also encourage pests and can turn urban areas into an unpleasant place to live in. Carter (2012) claims that it also results in the loss of 24 billion tons of topsoil each year and a loss of at least 15 million acres of prime agricultural land due to overuse and mismanagement. Some measures of land pollution are through the education of people through campaigns, recycling to reduce wastes.
Pollution is defined by Merriam-Webster as the action of polluting especially by environmental contamination with man-made waste. Every day millions of people are finding way to slowly damage the environment by being wasteful of resources, contaminating the fresh and salt waters, and by creating loud noises that are harmful to one’s health. The causes of pollution from the air, water, and noise continue to negatively impact the environment, animals, and people. The contamination of each area continues to increase daily and, if not addressed. will continue to have long lasting negative impacts on the Earth.
However, regarding these environmental issues there has been always controversies. Environmentalists claim that things are getting worse, and the skeptics deny and claim that things are not that much worse. Environmentalists demand that due to population and pollution the environment is losing its ecosystem balance and as a result human life is going to face tons of problems. Whereas the environmental skeptics claim that the opinions of environmentalists are exaggerated and also argued that the extent of environmental degradation is visibly less than some scientists claim it to be. The factual circumstances of environment are truly intimidating because of the population boom, deforestation, and pollution.
Introduction 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. As they unable to serve everyone’s need in this township. Over 8000 people are living in
And the undeliberate action is like small scale farmer who use artifical fertilizer wiht out having any idea about its side effect on the soil and water bodies. Whether deliberately or not , the impact on human being is very large. One of the dangerous pllution that occure in our world is air pollution. Air is polluted due to different reasons and become a dangerous for people life. Countires like china and some other countries suffer more from air pollution.
ABSTRACT Over the years, Environmental pollution has been seen an epidemic growth. It is increasing day by day due to large number of industries and automobiles. Many human activities are responsible for increasing environmental pollution. This report demonstrates that environmental pollution has bad impact of human, plants and animals. Moreover, how this is affected our environment and as well as other organisms.
