Climate change, sometimes referred to as global warming is the drastic change in weather patterns that are occurring across the globe. It particularly means the rise in the average surface temperatures all across the world. A major cause of this problem is the burning of fossil fuels to produce energy. The gases, carbon dioxide, methane, chlorofluorocarbons, nitrogen oxides, water vapour and others released by the burning of these non-renewable resources forms a blanket above the earth’s surface which allows heat to enter the earth but prevents its escape to space resulting in the rise in global temperatures. Today, this issue has become an increasing threat to places, people and animal species.
Sometimes doing things illegally, placing pipelines that spill oil and other toxic substances or take the only thing that community has, water. Many problems such as mercury exposure, water safety, shortage of food and heat make America a target for environmental issues. The fast life in America ruins people, so sometimes taking charge in your community gives life a different meaning. Opening a garden, a recycling center or even planting trees can open the souls of many and give life back to others. Like I stated before change can be small yet it will make a difference to others and the
“The Toxic Soup” Pollution is one of the widely known environmental problem. It is described as the environmental contamination with man-made waste. Pollution is not only affecting the environment but also humans too. The environment is one of the major aspect in our life. Many of us don’t think about the consequences of our actions.
It occurs due to contamination of undesired chemicals in the soil due to human activities. Application of insecticides and pesticides incorporates the nitrogen compounds from the soil making it unsuitable for plants to obtain nutrition from. Discharge of industrial waste, mining, as well as deforestation, are other human activities that pollute the soil because plants can 't grow in the right way and cannot hold the soil and this results in soil erosion which is the major form so soil pollution. The forth form of pollution is Noise pollution. It occurs unpleasant sound stirs our ears and results to psychological problems such as stress, hypertension, hearing impairment, etc.
At this rate, many people are affected. People who live in places with high levels of air pollution have a 20% higher risk of death from lung cancer than people who live in less-polluted areas. Animals are also getting affected by air pollution. Over 1 million seabirds and 100,000 sea mammals are killed by pollution every year. Every day it’s getting more and more polluted and soon we won 't even be able to see the clouds and much more.
Habitats are being lost, species are becoming extinct and it harder for the environment to recover from each natural disaster. Major Industrial accidents like oil spills, fire, leak of radioactive material and damage to property are harder to clean up, since they have a higher impact in a shorter span of time. Global warming: with rise in industrial pollution, global warming has been increasing at a steady space. Smoke and greenhouse effect and increase in global warming, melting of glaciers, and extinction of polar beers, floods, tsunamis, and hurricanes are few of the effects of global warming. 4 The picture below shows an environment that is affected with solid waste pollution: SOLLUTION WASTE REDUCTION: STOP THROWING THINGS OUT!
Pollution is the cause of many problems we are facing today. For example global warming and the ozone layer depletion. This isn’t just harmful to us humans but it is also harmful to the environment and animals, we changed everything. Black smoke in every corner, deforestation, desertification, oil in the depth of our sea. Some don 't really realize how special our planet and our home is.
Extreme Weather is one of the causes that can definitely wipeout humans of the face of Earth. Extreme weather consists of natural disasters that we see in regular life for ex: floods, earthquakes, wildfires, landslide, tsunamis and many other disasters. These disaster kill people, but if we fail to prevent pollution we will create disasters that will take millions of human lives and it will all be our fault. According to “ The World Health Organization” estimates that 160,000 deaths since 1950 are directly contributed to climate change. A major problem right now is Glacier melting which if not stopped will kill way more people than 160,000 and also in a short time.
Water pollution is defined as when many toxic chemicals are added into the water the water is polluted. A small drop of harmful chemical in a house pump or cannel can polluted the water in heavy amount. This can be much harmful for human. While a large amount, a chemical in a river can pollute low water. “Any change or modification in the physical, chemical and biological properties of water that will have a detrimental consequence on living things is water pollution.” Water pollution affects the drinking water, lakes, rivers and all over the world.
Destroying the world to survive: POLLUTION Background The presence and use of substances that are harmful and poisonous to the environment, especially being contained in the water, air and soil are factors that contribute to destroying the environment. Pollution continues to be an important public health concern in our societies. Since the development of Industries within the societies our environment and health conditions have been endangered by the high levels of pollution. The sudden increase in population has led to many informal and unhealthy polluted settlements. Though there are types of pollutions, it has come to my senses that the societies that we live in today are in danger of facing all kinds of pollutions because we human beings contribute to the environment
