Environmental pollution - Causes and consequences of pollutionBY: chitracs | Category: Others | Post Date: 2008-08-13
We all are aware of environmental pollution. Our planet earth differs from other planets in having an environment. The biosphere in which living beings have their sustenance has oxygen, nitrogen, carbon dioxide, argon and water vapour. All these are well balanced to ensure a healthy life in the world. The introduction of contaminants into an environment is called environmental pollution. Due to environmental pollution instability, disorder, harm or discomfort to the physical systems or living organisms are caused.
Let us see the types of environmental pollution. The noise, heat, light, water and chemical substances are getting polluted day by day. Due to environmental pollution, the air, water and land are affected. Due to environmental pollution, the drastic changes such as depletion of the ozone layer, global warming and climate change are happening in the world. The release of chemicals and particles from industries and factories cause air pollution. The surface runoff, liquid spills, waste water discharge and leakage into ground water are the main reasons for water pollution. The toxins spilled on the ground causes soil pollution.
The reasons for environmental pollution can be seen one by one. Due to urbanisation, forests are destructed. There is more demand for water. Every single day, tons and tons of domestic waste is dumped. If these wastes are not disposed of properly, that will end in environmental pollution. The pall of smoke and the swirling gases cause constant hazards, polluting and contaminating both air and water. Necessary safeguard arrangements should be made against environmental pollution.
Many crusaders are vehemently protesting against environmental pollution. Nothing in the world is immune and no life is safe. We can very well notice the abnormal behavior of our seasons. But, it is heartening to find that entire world is aware of the menace and all the countries are ready to fight against environmental pollution. The pesticides and herbicides used by farmers also pollute the land. The industrial activities are contributing for environmental pollution very much. Heaps of mining wastes also contaminate the soil.
The environmental pollution is not caused by the fall out from nuclear tests or industries alone. The smoke left by automobiles and other vehicular traffic, the use of synthetic detergents, nitrogen fertilizers cause environmental pollution. If we fail to restore the ecological balance right now, it would be too late tomorrow. So, everybody should organise their activities in such a way to drive away the environmental pollution from earth.
