Pollution Control

Any undesirable physical, chemical or biological change caused to land, water, air and other natural resources is termed as environmental pollution. These pollutions make life very difficult. Though there are various causes for pollution, man himself is a major cause. Over-pollution is the chief cause. Air pollution is due to industrial and automobile exhaust. These contain carbon dioxide, sulphur dioxide and oxides of nitrogen. They cause breathing trouble and even cancer. Plants are unable to synthesis food. The protective ozone layer is affected thereby, exposing us to the ill effects of radioactive rays. Accumulation of rubbish, polythene and plastic containers, glass and porcelain, result in land pollution. They cause various diseases. The letting in of domestic sewage waste, industrial waste and tannery effluents, pollute drinking water. The use of excess of chemical fertilizers, insecticides, pesticides and DDT, pollute both land and water. They lead to many deadly, contagious diseases. Oil leaks in the oceans affect marine life. They endanger many marine species. Gas leakage, leakage of nuclear reactors also poses several threats to us. The latest is the leak of cyanide from a gold mining company in to the blue Danube. More than 80% of the marine species is dead. The river has turned grey. Unless suitable steps are taken to check pollution, mankind will be destroyed along with other organisms.

According to my opinion environmental pollution is done by the human being. Unnecessary use of more amount of fortilizer due to get some profit he/she acts as a killer. They doesn't think that is not gud and who face problem for it.

At last the people will pay for it nothing the money its need only the use less amount of polluted particles. If only one can think for it great changes our living life with a green and safe environment.

ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION AND ITS EFFECTS

Thanks to modern developments, environmental pollution is on the increase. The air we breathe is polluted with smoke emitted by vehicles and factories. The streams and rivers are polluted with waste from factories. All kinds of noises made by vehicles and loud speakers rob people of peace of mind.

Environmental pollution poses a great danger to the health of the people. It has given rise to numerous diseases. The present century poses a very serious danger of human survival on earth by nuclear threat. It has been proved that still Nagasaki and Hiroshima are tottally unsuitable for human life. People will have to pay a heavy price if immediate steps are not taken to keep the environment clear. What is needed is to create necessary conditions so that man and nature can coexist in productive harmony.

Pollution means making things dirty. It is one of the evils brought about by the growth of science and technology. Industries empty their wastes into the river. These wastes contain harmful chemicals. They not only kill the living things in the river but also spread a number of diseases. People who drink this water or bathe in the river become easy prey to deadly diseases.

Factories and industries keep throwing out smoke. These smokes contain toxic gases. They pollute the air. People breathing this impure air get diseases affecting the lungs and the respiratory system. Owing to this pollution, the ozone layer in the atmosphere is becoming thinner and thinner. As a result the solar radiation hits us directly and causes diseases like skin cancer.

Acid rain is one of the threats of pollution. We burn coal, petrol and diesel in vehicles and power stations. The fumes given out contain oxides of nitrogen, carbon and sulphur. They react with water vapour and produce acids. The acid rain that falls to the earth corrodes houses and ancient buildings of historical value. The acidity in the water destroys fish and other aquatic life. Forests begin to die. The oxides of carbon and nitrogen trap the heat of the sun. As a result the atmospheric heat increases. This is called global warming.
