Karin 20/08/2014 English 8A Nearly everyday in our lives, we see banners, magazines, newspapers, as well as posters telling us to be environmental friendly and to stop pollution. But do people listen to the advices? Do people realize that pollution is one of the biggest global killers? Pollution is the number 1 cause of death in the developing world; it kills approximately 10 million people every year. It’s hard to tell when and where pollution began. When a volcano erupts, it sends toxic gas into our atmosphere causing air pollution, meaning that pollution has always existed on Earth. But, the cause of pollution becoming the number 1 cause of death is not because of natural disasters. It’s because of us, humans. Every day activities …show more content…
Imagine what happens if we keep on polluting our planet? What happens to our future generation? Since plastic takes years to biodegrade, if we keep polluting our environment with plastic, then our future generation will suffer from the environment around them. It also means that plastic and other trash will continue polluting the ocean, which can cause thousands of sea animals to go extinct, providing us with less source of food. 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 …show more content…
We all know that it is impossible for pollution to be 100% gone since the cause of it is also from nature itself. But there are always solutions as to how to reduce pollution. It’s unbelievably foolish to know that pollution is the number 1 cause of death, and yet, pollution solutions are relatively low-cost. It’s great that we already have many companies trying to end pollution. Other companies try to be more eco-friendly and, for example, use plastic that decomposes faster. But that still won’t get rid of pollution. Not everyone needs to stop doing any activities that causes pollution. But, everyone needs to at least try to reduce the amount of activities they do that cause pollution. Simple acts from using common transportation to reusing plastic bags are extremely helpful to our environment and future environment. Start acting now before it’s too late. Pollution may be a threat, but it can be solved in our

Air pollution is not a problem that we can fix overnight, so we want to start educating younger generations on how we can reduce it. For example, instead of, later in their life, buying a gasoline car, students can maybe think about buying an electric car; or how about not taking a car at all. We live in a community where almost everything is either in biking distance or walking distance, so we can always choose one of those options. We can also find different ways of powering factories. The burning of fossil fuels causes air pollution and this is how factories are
In the essay “The Obligation to Endure”, the Author Rachel Carson tells the readers how harmful and how dangerous modern industrial pollution is. She also states the consequences left by the deadly toxins being released into the environment around us. To structure her essay, she uses a passionate tone, horrific examples, a passionate tone, and factual evidence to express how much harm is being done to the earth. There are many different kinds of pollution, and many different ways the earth gets polluted to the venomous pesticides sprayed on plants, to toxic chemicals released into the air. “She States that chemicals come from our “laboratories in an endless stream; almost five hundred annually find their way into actual use in the United states alone”(Carson)
Due to the negative effects caused from plastic it will always play a role in our environment. One hundred different chemicals have been created after the 1950s to the current day. Something people do not realize is that throwing a plastic wrapper on the ground will end up in a birds stomach, burning plastic in a fire will end up in the air we breathe, and recycling plastic will end up back in our homes. The author states, “I don’t even shop anymore. Anything I need will just float
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.
How do human beings encounter and live within their environments? Although modern amenities protect humans from the harsh realities of nature, being alone forces humans to abide by the rules of their environments. Technology serves as a barrier to the environment, as “the countless ways in which your life--and any meaning, comfort, safety, or happiness you may find in life--depends on technology” (Rand). Because of this separation, people are led to believe that they are immune to the dangers of nature. However, this is not the case.
Plastic bags, glass bottles, and tin cans are few of the things that enter our ocean; and may take up to centuries to degrade. Not only do the chemicals in these plastics leak into the water, but they also harm ocean life upfront as well. Many animals either consume or get entangled in the trash floating in the water. In fact, plastic alone kills 100,000 sea turtles and birds per year ("Plastics in the Ocean Affecting Human Health"). The plastic also releases toxins that harms the health of fish as well.
Environmental damage alone kills about 1.8 million people per year, 20% of whom are under the age of five (The Hidden Tragedy, 2015). This number is higher than the number of casualties caused by malnutrition and any other preventable disease combined (The Hidden Tragedy, 2015). Such high rates of fatality prove that there is a problem, specifically within industrializing nations. For example, a 2010 survey reported that in China alone, 1.2 million died prematurely from the effects of air and water pollution (Wong, 2013). That is equivalent to 25 million years of life lost that could have otherwise been dedicated to groundbreaking scientific advancements, literary masterpieces, and revolutionary social changes (Wong, 2013).
Everyday people buy plastic things from the cafeteria, from plastic containers, lids on cups, and things as small as straws, and like 50% of plastic used it will be thrown away after one use. However, do you ever stop and think, what happens to the plastic? If you’re thinking that it just magically goes away you 're wrong. It will most likely end up in a landfill somewhere or in the ocean, and as you may think that your actions do not impact the world, think again. Everyone in the world has at least used one piece of plastic, adding to the problem of plastic pollution and helping certifying the terrifying statisticc that acooording to the 2018 Earth day video, “by 2050 there will more plastic in the ocean than fish”, which almost is impossible to think of.
In addition many believe that it helps our economy but it actually takes up more money that we can be using for something else that is also important. Over the decades we are fooled into believing that there’s been a big change ever since the issue was addressed and many of us started doing something about it but to this day pollution is still a huge problem all over the world. There is so much to improve on whether it’s on saving more money, less contamination, recycling outside of home and going out to public places to make our environment cleaner, etc. We need to do much more than just depending on recycling when we want to in order to make this environment better. There is so much more to it than recycling and if we did something else, then there would be hope for bigger and better changes

The reason plastic is used in many products is because it can withstand up to tons of pressure per cm3, is cheap, is durable, and finally, there is no worry for discoloring. But these days, plastic is becoming a major problem the world has to deal with. Plastic is thrown into the ocean, and it is breaking down into very small pieces, and killing marine life, as they mistake those pieces to their prey. As a matter of fact, nearly all plastics are recyclable, but it 's the recycling companies ' machines that refuse to recycle that kind of plastic(eartheasy.com). I. Plastic, what have you done?
We have one world to live. We are reminded of this in class, and now, an article. In the world, we have caused a lot of pollution through our unintended actions. For example, we cut down forests, destroying habitats, and polluting the air. As a result, we must take care of it through ways we have not even thought of.
