land and soil, water and air. When dirt, chemicals or any other harmful elements become a part of our world they make everything polluted. There is a fourth type of pollution that refers to radioactive pollutants and…

Global warming has also been attributed in part to pollution. When these chemicals and toxins become a part of the environment they affect not just the environment but humans as well. If we can control our actions then we can make the world a better place to live.
Air pollution occurs because of toxins that are released into the air by cars, aerosols, factories etc. what it basically does it make the air unclean and unsafe to breathe in and can cause many kinds of respiratory diseases. It has also been known to affect the wild life as it has killed many birds. Many people in china and Japan are known to wear masks to work and school because of the pollution there. The sad reality is that because of air pollution we do not just harm ourselves but harm the planet for the future generations.
Water pollution refers to contaminants that find their way into the water reservoirs i.e. lakes and streams along with the ocean. Large companies have been known to dump toxins in streams that later on become a part of our drinking water. Many people use filters these days so that they can have clean water for their use but the sad reality is that the industrial world has a huge negative impact on the developing world and water pollution is making life tough not just for them but also sea life, fresh water fish life, and harming the plant life as well. Sewage water is also released into streams and the coastlines of many countries and have a very detrimental effect overall.
Land and soil pollution refers to the detrimental state of affairs because of unhealthy and unsafe trash and toxicant dumping habits employed by humans. It has been mainly attributed to urbanization and industrialization, both of which destroy natural resources that are already present in order to build and become successful. The tearing down of God made things results in a lot of problems for example, in order to

Pollution Pollution is caused when air, water or soil gets contaminated by discharge of harmful substances. Pollution causes imbalance in the ecosystem by causing harm and discomfort to living organisms. Pollution can be prevented if resources like raw materials, water and energy are utilized in proper way and harmful materials are substituted by materials which are less hazardous (“What is Pollution Prevention”, n.d.).
Since air pollution has serious effects to the human health as well as other living organisms, there have been increasing concerns on how to prevent it or at least mitigate its effects in the world (Liu 11). National governments, international organizations, and individuals have developed policies and approaches of addressing the challenge of environmental degradation, which air pollution is a main contributory factor (Agarwal 17).
Pollution is in a word the neglecting of the environment and each other. It can be seen as disrespect for each others health. The reason that understanding pollution in terms of its implication on health issues is that it can help educate people. And as the saying goes: knowledge is power.
Ours is a water planet with the implication being, as R.B. Clark insists, that the health of our environment is intimately connected to the health of our waterways, oceans and seas (Clark, p. 185). Numerous environmentalists and scientists, as Hertsgaard emphasizes, have confirmed the aforementioned, insisting that marine pollution directly impinges upon the health and long-term survival of our planet (Hertsgaard, pp.
The Polar Bears have a preference for habitation on the sea ice along with polynyas and leads that are usually adjacent to continental islands as well as coastlines. Leads are actually canals or breaks of water
He mentions the stop-gap measures that the local and national government has taken in order to help curb the problem. In the end, he reminds his readers that water pollution is a problem that affect us all, regardless of how far away the water
Even though this fact is recognized by humans, they disregard it by polluting lakes, rivers, oceans and seas. Water pollution causes many problems which includes diseases and killing of fish. Polluted water is also detrimental to human beings and animal life. The thesis will contend that water pollution comprises thermal pollution, industrial effluent and flooding.
