Pollution is simply the introduction of pollutants into the environment which cause harmful change to the land and its living organisms. Pollution may take the form of energy, air, noise, or natural chemicals. Pollutants, the substances of pollution, are either natural ones/energies foreign chemicals/sabotage, or man-made compounds. All these chemicals can harm the land and its inhabitants.
Human beings have been continuously causing pollution by the use of various natural resources and by man-made pollution. Man is not the only creature that causes pollution but also animals such as dogs, cats, and birds. Humans produce pollution due to the consumption of polluted sources such as garbage materials as well as the use of toxic gases, solvents, aerosols, pesticides, and waste. There are also industrial pollutants that are emitted from factories and other large scale manufacturing facilities that are harmful to the environment.
These dangerous elements enter the earth through the environment where they can pollute air, soil, plants, animals, and people's health. The pollution in the environment can cause a variety of health problems, ranging from respiratory ailments to cardiovascular diseases to cancer. Some pollutants are emitted into the atmosphere by human beings such as industrial wastes, chemicals, and industrial pollutants.
Industrial pollutants can cause damage to the environment because they are usually more toxic than natural pollution sources. Some types of industrial pollution such as pesticides, herbicides, pharmaceuticals, and industrial solvents are very dangerous to the environment.
Some human beings can cause harm to the environment through the use of illegal substances such as drugs, weapons, and illegal substances which can have deadly effects on the environment. Other human beings can cause harm to the environment through the use of illegal dumping sites such as those of illegally dumped nuclear waste.
There are many more types of harmful substances that may be present in the environment and these may affect human beings. These include: toxic wastes, air pollutants, radioactive substances, and other toxic gases.
Each type of pollution is harmful to one or more environments's creatures and it can affect all of them depending on the kind of pollutants. They include: animals, plants, and their products, people, and their products, and human beings. Pollutions have a direct impact on the environment, affecting the land, the water, animals, plants, and their products, humans, and human beings. Therefore, they are called by different names such as: pollution, pollutants, external pollution, and pollutants. These are all descriptive terms that are used in describing the problem of environmental pollution.
In today's world there are many ways of combating the pollution problem and this includes the use of several pollution reducing techniques. One of the techniques is by making use of the environment-friendly technologies and also making use of bioprocesses such as biodegradable wastes or bio-degradable wastes, renewable energy sources, etc. Another technique is by using the best available technology to reduce emissions into the atmosphere. By making use of energy efficient appliances and vehicles, one can make the use of renewable sources of energy instead of the usual ones.
It is clear to see that the pollution problem is an important issue in today's world. The only way that we can make a long term change and be a part of a sustainable society is by using the most cost effective methods of reducing pollution and by doing our share in making the environment safe for the future generations to come.
There are many pollution reducing techniques available in the market today. The most popular methods include the following: reuse of materials; reduction of usage of fossil fuels and carbon emissions; use of low-emission building materials; using biofuel rather than gas and electricity; recycling of waste materials; recycling and utilization of agricultural waste and using it to produce various biofuels. There are also green building and construction practices such as energy efficient buildings, energy efficient appliances, construction materials, and use of solar and wind power for electricity.
These practices can have positive effects on human beings and the environment. These techniques include: reducing the consumption of fossil fuels by making use of alternative energy sources, reducing energy consumption, the use of energy efficient appliances, reduction of air pollution, reduction of pollution emissions into the atmosphere, reduced use of chemicals, and wastages, reuse of waste products, and the use of waste materials.
These are a few techniques that will lead to making the environment healthier and greener. If we take care of them, we can all contribute to making our environment a better place for our children and for future generations.
