The world is suffering from the onslaught of harmful chemicals and toxins emitted by humans and factories and this is known as pollution. The whole eco-system is being threatened because of this pollution and living beings are facing threats to life. Animals and plants are suffering and it is very important for the people of the Earth to be educated and aware of what the primary causes of pollution are. They should immediately take note and engage in environmental friendly practices so that the world is saved and human beings can join hand with governments of nations to protect the planet.
The introduction of harmful chemicals into the environment is pollution. This makes the world unhealthy. The whole ecosystem is at threat as pollution creates havoc for all living beings on Earth. It is important for people on the Earth to be aware of the different types of pollution. There are agencies and bodies that are taking the onus of spreading the cause of saving the earth and curbing environmental pollution.
Sole reasons for environmental pollution
Jonathan Schrag is a Founding Partner at Hudson Strategic Energy and explains the prime reasons of environmental pollution. He says that when it comes to air pollution, you will find there is an emission of harmful chemicals and other pollutants in the environment. The chemicals that are released into the atmosphere pollute the atmosphere and make it very hard for you to breathe. This gives rise to many breathing issues. These chemicals are sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, chlorofluorocarbons and nitrogen oxides that are emitted by vehicles and industries. When these chemicals react to the sunlight, you will find smog in the air and this gives birth to a photochemical ozone layer. This layer is very harmful to the environment, he says.
The soil and water of the planet needs attention
The planet also suffers from soil and water contamination. The waste products are harm the river and the water bodies to a large extent. Livings and animals are dying due to the amount of pollutants that have hit the soil. Plants and water bodies are also being affected. Even fishes are dying to a large extent he says. It is very important for human beings to be responsible as they are the only ones who can take up the cause and protect the environment he says.
The need for awareness
Humans should be aware of the harmful causes and effects of environmental pollution, climate change and global warming. You need to be responsible and work with governments he says. The USA has The Environmental Protection Agency that is working towards saving the planet and creating awareness among governments. He says that the EPA ensures that rules and regulations are followed when it comes to the protection of the environment. It does not deal with the health or the well being of the people but it does have the onus of ensuring that people are aware of the harmful effects of chemical and toxins on the planet, says Jonathan Schrag.
