Industrial waste pollution has the ability (depended on the severity) to kill plants and animals, disrupt ecosystems, degrade air quality, and possibly degrade the quality of life (Naaz 2010). Industrial waste includes a wide range of impurities including poisonous substances such as mercury, cyanide and lead. When these toxic wastes are discharged into rivers there is a poisonous effect to the aquatic life living in those rivers. So then later it turns to harms the people who then consume those aquatic
Because of that are floods increasingly common. We also pollute land. It is caused by throwing garbage on the land and river banks, leakage from chemical tanks, oil spills and other chemicals, which came into the soil by accidental contamination. Animals can eat garbage on land and river banks and they can die because of asphyxiation. Absolutely farming is the most dangerous caused for land pollution.
Due to the excess of heat in the environment, unwanted changes over a long time period, a huge number of industrial plants, deforestation and air pollution have been created. It increases the earth’s temperature, causing drastic climatic changes and extinction of wildlife. 1.1.3 Noise pollution Noise pollution also called sound pollution, which is unfriendly sound effects, caused by machines in industries, loud music, sound of vehicles and loud speakers. Noise pollution can lead to problems like stress, hypertension, hearing impairment and even permanent deafness, especially to older people. 1.1.4 Soil pollution Soil pollution is due to incorporation of undesirable chemicals, such as hydrocarbons, heavy metals, solvents in the soil due to human activities and from bad waste disposal.
I consider these issues are relatively major because their harm to the environment and population is enormous. Firstly, air and water provide some essential conditions for population. If they are overly polluted, this will lead to reduction in biodiversity and the extinction of species. Secondly, waste pollution is also major because it produces not only toxic gases into the air, but its contaminant will destroy the
The impact of hazardous waste on the environment and health If waste is not well-managed, unpredictable negative outcomes of household hazardous waste can occur at its source (residential households), waste collection points, during transportation, and after deposit in landfills and/or incineration sites, with the potential to cause permanent damage to the environment and public health. The impact of household hazardous waste is the exposure of health and the reduction of environment quality. From the health point of view stated that one of household hazardous waste characteristics is toxic. The toxic can come into food chain and it will be accumulated on human and be able to cause some gene mutation, cancer and congenital. From the environment reduction point of view, it causes surface water and ground water
Heavy metals are known as toxic and carcinogenic substances. Releasing the waste into the nature before it goes through industrial water waste treatment will harm the environment. Ground water and other water sources (e.g. river, lake) around the location will obviously be contaminated. Being in contact with contaminated water can cause a lot of health problems and the damage will mostly be inflicted upon innocent people who use water from those water sources in their daily life.
Title: Causes of air pollution and water pollution Pollution is the effect of undesirable changes in our surroundings that have harmful effects on plants, animals and human beings. During the last few decades, we have contaminated our water, air and land and nowadays the pollutions become more serious. Pollutants including solid, liquid and gaseous produced due to the human activities such as industrial development, transportation and many more. The term ‘contaminated’ shows the worse pollution trigger by human and it is very dangerous to health. Harmful condition from “water source that become polluted with any chemicals or organic matter is dangerous to human health, also for the air pollutant bring the nasal effect to the human because of contaminating air” (M.Harrison, 2001, p. 239).
Human Health - The contiguity of pipelines to groundwater sources can cause serious contamination that may have a detrimental impact on communities. If dilbit is involved in a spill, the diluent evaporates rapidly in the air and can lead to high airborne levels of toxic components. This adversely affects the health and safety of surrounding societies. 3. Ecological: If ingested by aquatic organisms, oil spills can cause serious harm and death.
What Is Air Pollution? Air pollution refers to the release of pollutants into the air that are detrimental to human health and the planet as a whole. It occurs when any harmful gases, dust, smoke enters into the atmosphere and makes it difficult for plants, animals and humans to survive as the air becomes dirty. Types of Pollutants In order to understand the causes of Air pollution, several divisions can be made. Primarily air pollutants can be caused by primary sources or secondary sources.
In addition to the environment, pollution also affects wildlife. The toxic pollutants in the air slowly break down and are injected into the aquatic ecosystems. Persistent toxic air pollutants are resulting in disease to animals and birds. Ozone depletion is a byproduct of air pollution as well and has been identified as a significant problem in India. The ozone is gradually being destroyed by man-made chemicals which are particles in the air pollution.
