A big environmental issue today is pollution. Although there are others kinds of pollution, the three main types are air, land, and water pollution. Air pollution is caused by vehicles and factories releasing harmful gases into the air. This kind of pollution is causes by humans when they construct buildings, use different forms of transportation, grow crops, and more. Although, natural disasters such as volcanic eruptions and wildfires also pollute the air, they only pollute the air where the event occurred.
Some of the things people do cause harm to the health. We cause pollution when we make our water, land, and air dirty. In this topic, you will learn what pollution is, what are different types of pollution, and how does it affect health. Pollution is anything that makes the earth dirty and unhealthy. Water, air,and land are all affected by pollution.There are different types of pollution categorized based on the part of the environment which they affect or result which the particular pollution causes.
Several efforts have been made over recent years to maintain a safe and clean environment. However, environmental pollution is getting worst and poses a major threat to the Earth. Environmental pollution is “the contamination of the physical and biological components of the Earth to such an extent that normal environmental processes are adversely affected” (Kemp, 1998, p. 129). There are five known pollution which is in the form of air, water, land, noise and light (refer to Figure 1 in Appendix 1). The first type of pollution is air pollution.
• To what extent is ecological loss effecting the environment? Clean air is essential to a healthy environment and for the healthy life of all living things. Air is said to be polluted when it contains certain substances in high amount and for long periods of time to cause harm. • World Perspectives: Air can also get polluted due to natural causes such as volcanic eruptions, forest fires, sandstorms, and pollen from the plants. The events send smoke, ash, and gases into the atmosphere.
What is pollution? Pollution is the contamination of our environment due to unclean things that are produced by ourselves. There are several kind of pollution. They include land pollution, water pollution, air pollution, and noise pollution. In this essay, I am going to discuss about air pollution.
Natural causes of air pollution consist of volcanic eruptions, forest fires and other natural processes. However, these occurrences are not often seen and only contribute to a small amount of air pollution in the world. They create air pollutants such as ash and smoke which may give rise to harmful effects on the environment as well as the people. Human activity contributes to the bulk of air pollution. Outdoor air pollution can be caused by manufacturing, burning of fossil fuels, other forms of burning as well as smoking.
What is water pollution and who cause water pollution? Water pollution It's a huge problems in earth, animals are the most effect when water is contaminated, but also water pollution affected humans health. Sometimes we don’t see but we are always contaminating water by throwing thrash and exposing chemicals on water. Humans are the reason why water pollution exist, but we can something about it to end water pollution. What is water pollution?
Heavy metals, nitrates and plastic are toxins responsible for pollution. While water pollution is caused by oil spill, acid rain, urban runoff. The reason behind air pollution is because of various gases and toxins released by industries and factories and combustion of fossil fuels. Thermal pollution is rise in the temperature in the ecosystem due to the release of excessive heat energy into the environment by artificial methods or natural disasters. When someone thinks of pollution, the idea of thermal pollution usually does not come to mind.
DEFINITION Air pollution is the condition where there is a big enough quantity of contaminant from other substances in the air especially by the smoke or gases from vehicles, factories and power stations and it effect the health of people or other animals, kill the plants and disrupt other aspect of the environment. There are two types of air pollution which are outdoor air pollution and indoor air pollution. Outdoor air pollution included smog, particulates, and acid rain and greenhouse gases. When discussing about pollution, the first thing that come out in the mind is “pollution happens because of human”. Actually, the pollution not only because of human but it also happen naturally.
These are the major contributors to air pollution and one of the most challenging to manage because we are heavily relying on transportation as our daily basic. 3.2 Indoor Air Pollution Use of household chemicals produces massive amounts of harmful substances into the atmosphere and has the potential to worsen the air quality. Dusting of painting supplies, home fumigation, crops, household cleaning products, fertilizer powder, hair sprays, pesticide, uses or aerosol in refrigerators, air-conditioners and deodorant sprays release harmful chemicals into the air, causing pollution. Urban infrastructures which usually with a condition will causes lack of ventilation. This is because of high concentrations of chemicals within a confined area can be hazardous and can cause serious breathing problems.
