Essay on Pollution It’s Causes and Remedies

 

We are living in the age of technology where people use latest machines and other technological products to get our work done. We move from one place to another using modern transport system based on bikes, cars, buses, jeeps and trucks. We use air conditioners in our homes, offices and vehicles to maintain their temperature to desired level.

Occasionally, we use loudspeakers to convey our message as far as possible. These all facilities were never available few centuries back; and, if there were any, they were very few and their use was quite limited. Consequently, these things have rendered our societies in pollution.

Pollution is a situation when something is added to the natural environment which is not naturally there; natural environment is comprised of air, land and water. So any contamination in any of the element of environment will be regarded as pollution; however, nature of contamination is quite different in each component and may take many forms as we shall see in the paragraphs that follow. We can determine the types of pollution by the virtue of these three components i.e. we can say there basically three types of pollution: land pollution, air pollution and water pollution.

Land pollution is the addition of toxic material in the soil. Our societies are primarily driven by industries; and, inevitably, we have become dependent on industrial products. Besides yielding certain products, there is certainly huge amount of industrial waste that is either buried in the land or thrown into the garbage. In addition, our country has become a nuclear power, we have a couple of nuclear power plants, waste of which is also either buried in the land or flushed into the water. In both cases they cause serious harm to natural environment. They threaten the fertility of the land and disrupt the production of the crops.

Air pollution takes place when something toxic or huge amount of any gas is emitted into the atmosphere. The key causes of air pollution are the emission of carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxides and nitrogen oxides. These gases disturb the natural composition of atmosphere and cause many health issues including severe breathing problems. Of all industrial waste, a huge amount is emitted into the air resulting in the air pollution. Moreover the very vehicles we use are the worst suppliers of toxic gases. The air conditioners are very common in our homes, offices, and vehicles, but little do we know about the negative consequences of them. They emit chlorofluorocarbons which eventually cause depletion, and in worst cases holes, in the ozone layer.

Water pollution is a relatively new phenomenon, and one can safely utter that it is solely the result of industrial waste and nuclear waste which is thrown into the open seas and oceans. However, there is significant contribution of our poor sewerage system to it. It has stuffed up marine life. Admittedly, it doesn’t affect us in the short run but it does affect in the long run. We have seen societies suffering from water diseases because they have consumed filthy water.

As far as remedies are concerned we can say that there is only one remedy i.e. we ought to know the consequences and take responsibility of what we have done. There are multinational organizations such United Nations and World Health Organization who have proposed numerous solutions to the aforesaid issues. All we need is just read and educate ourselves and people around us.
