Environment: Environmental Pollution
Environmental pollution includes:
WATER: The industrial waste products which are released into rivers, lakes and other water bodies creates obstacles for the marine life. The water becomes polluted due to disposal of ashes, flowers, garbage and other household wastage as well as acid rain also leads to water pollution.
AIR: Air pollution is cause by the injurious smokes i.e. nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide and sulphur dioxide produced from cars, buses, trucks, trains, and factories. Refrigerators, Air-conditioners, Deodorants and Insect repellents releases Chlorofluorocarbons (CFC) which cause severe damage to the Earth’s environment as this gas depleted the ozone layer leading to global warming and slowly damage the atmosphere.
SOIL: The main problems for soil pollution are polluted water, excessive use of fertilizers, acid rain etc. which ultimately effects the growth and development of crops. Sometimes the storage tank filled with chemicals (i.e. herbicides, pesticides, hydrocarbons, heavy metals, chlorinated hydrocarbons etc.) leaks and contaminates the soil.
NOISE: Noise pollution includes noises of cars, buses, trucks, aircraft noises. These vehicles produces large amount of noises and creates noisy environment. Similarly, vehicle’s horns, loudspeakers, industry noises are also responsible for noise pollution.
LIGHT: Light Pollution or photo pollution is excessive, misdirected, or obtrusive artificial light. It is the side effect of industrial civilization. Light pollution includes sky glow, light trespass, glare, over-illumination and astronomical interference.
