Pollution and its Effects –
Any impurity in the pure form of a product is considered a pollutant. It can occur naturally or can be caused due to human activities. Pollution is affecting our lives in many dimensions. It is the introduction of harmful and toxic chemical substances in the natural environment. The major forms of pollution include; air pollution, noise pollution, water pollution, plastic pollution, soil contamination, thermal pollution, and light pollution.
The air, water, and soil have been severely polluted by human activities. Air Pollution, Water Pollution, Noise pollution, and Soil Pollution are the main source of pollution. Environmental pollution can be caused by natural events such as volcanoes and forest fires but it largely occurs due to the pollutants caused by human activities.
Harmful substances and contaminants affecting the environment constitute environmental pollution. The greenhouse gas emission in the atmosphere increases the temperature of the earth. Climate change causes catastrophic changes in the weather. How this pollution affects us and how it is caused has been a matter of study for years. The use of fertilizers such as insecticides and pesticides reduces the soil fertility that results in a reduction of crop production. The contaminated water when consumed by humans causes various diseases such as typhoid, cholera, and jaundice.
Pollution has several adverse effects on animals, plants, environment, ecosystem, and human beings. According to Newton’s law, for every action, there is a reaction. The repercussions of pollution are producing health diseases, degrading the blessings of nature, eroding the lifestyles of people, and making multiples of problems. It is a global issue and people are now being more aware of the need to prevent this problem. For every problem, there is a solution in order to avoid this disease. The remedial techniques are awareness among public about how to avoid from polluting methods, produce electricity from dams, solar and wind sources, strict action by the state on those who pollute environment by spreading poisonous gases in the air, less use of private conveyances, and proper sanitation, as well as effective management of waste, will help to reduce the level of pollution from our environment. It is vital to control pollution to prevent its adverse effects on our environment and life in general.
In the end, it is the right time to make vigorous measures by the government for making a green environment for the people. Various measures need to be taken to prevent pollution in the environment. Otherwise, our country would not be able to become one of the developed countries in the world. It is vital to make efforts towards a green and clean environment to bring positive changes.
