These developments were able to lead to a variety of pollutions, and examples include water and air pollution. They also accelerate the environmental pollution, through the destruction of the ecosystem, and this leads to the exploitation of resources and disposal of wastes inefficiently.
Environmental pollution can simply be defined the identification of a harmful substance to both the environment and human life. (David Briggs, 2003, p.2). Environmental pollution results from a number of human activities that range from family level to community level. These activities can have devastating impacts on the health situation whereby people end up losing their dear lives because of activities that could be avoided if precautions were taken. Environmental pollution has an effect on the ecosystem, affecting the air, water and the land. Theoretical explanations have come up to try and explain these phenomena at the height of urban and industrial development. Yet, despite their efforts to come up with the explanations, countries that suffer most are those still living under very poor conditions and whose economies do not stand to protect the matter.
These poor nations still suffer from the exploitations of the highly developed in terms of policy formation at the international level. Countries like China and the USSR have suffered the effects of pollution resulting from unchecked development strategies and their leaders have come out strongly to support any interventions to eradicate the pandemic.
Olei (p.17) states that, in China and USSR there is an ecological continuity that, illustrates how development without democratic counterweight can slowly lead to poverty through the depletion of natural resources. As documented by Thompsons et al. (2003, p.12) our current approaches to production, use and nonuse can not last long hence parading fears over wildlife and human health. That we have considerable knowledge on environmental hazards, and information on human health

Our globe has been in the ‘fast mode’, with people having to make crucial choices for their survival and success. That is, with population burgeoning and opportunities for livelihood drying up, people are adopting various options.
Usually, alumina is extracted from the ore Bauxite during the Bayer process at an alumina factory. Aluminium smelting is an electrolytic process; and hence it consumes huge amounts of electricity. Although aluminum plays a vital role in the overall industrial growth, its extraction process through aluminum smelting raises series of environmental issues.
The vertical thickness and density of the atmosphere depends upon different ecosystems. The atmosphere along with its different ecosystems plays a significant role to maintain the overall planet’s temperature and in provision of coal, oil, food crops, and drinking water to human society.
It was observed that air pollution is causing several respiratory and cardiovascular problems in all parts of the world. The issues of air and water contamination along with global warming are international in nature. The solution of the above mentioned problems lies unifying the forces against them.
The research paper focuses on the problem of environmental pollution. In our particular case, Phoenix, AZ got serious problems caused by its expansion. Rural areas are being occupied that causes much pollution of water and air. Modern science fiction movies show us the world, which consists of technological devices.
Public opinion polls in the United States over the years consistently have noted a high level of concern over implementing air pollution controls to guarantee healthy air. The Clean Air Act of 1963 was an early Congressional response to the public demand for a federal assistance to solve a policy issue that originally was considered to be a state and local problem.
Pollution of the environment is one of the biggest and serious problems in the world today. It disturbs the economic and physical life of people. It is defined as the adding any substance in the form of energy to the environment at a faster rate than it can accommodate by decomposition, dispersion, recycling or storage in the form that is harmless.
