Pollution Types

Pollution the word is very much familiar to us. It simply means that all harmful changes that occur in our environment due to human activities is called as pollution. And very sad to say that human plays a key role in this increasing and devastating pollution. It would not be wrong if we say that humans in all forms and ages are totally responsible for this drastic pollution around the world and especially in India.

Pollution causes many harmful effects on our planet that is Earth and we are experiencing the uneven changes in climatic conditions around us. Three major changes that take place due to pollution are:

The first is that today the world is experiencing a new method of changes in climatic conditions and this is because of Global Warming acidic rain. The second is that people around the world are suffering from various diseases in which some are very dangerous and harmful and life threatening caused due to pollution. The third which is very important is that there is shortage of natural resources, and the resources fell short due to growing population.

Four major types of pollutions by which the ecological system gets disturbed are Air pollution, Water pollution, Land pollution and Sound pollution.

Air pollution

In Air pollution, the air is polluted by various means of gases exhausted from vehicles and harmful gas carbon mono oxide is released which causes air pollution. Today, vehicles of all types - be it two wheeler or four wheeler, has become part and parcel of growing population. Every house has a bike owned by the people which contribute accordingly to increase in pollution level.

Water pollution

Water pollution is caused due to dump of all sewage and garbage into the river and seas. Similarly, industrial dirty water is drained into rivers to cause many water born disease. In villages and towns, all dirty water at last is collected and driven into the nearby rivers. Thus these rivers become source of water pollution, which causes threat to the marine animals as well as those species that drink this polluted water. At time of water crises and acute shortage of water people also move towards these polluted rivers as the only source of water. Similarly, whosoever uses polluted water fall ill and suffer from water borne diseases.

Land pollution

In Land pollution, land is polluted by means of using various chemicals and pesticides and waste material which is dumped under the ground and very sad the land is being most polluted by means of plastic bags which are non-degradable things. Nowadays we have improvised and mechanic farming where the yield products are available at a shorter version of time. This is possible by using many chemicals and using harmful pesticides in farming which is very harmful to we human being. The use of plastic in day to day life is also a great threat to our environment. Plastic does not decompose in ground and remain as it is even after years together.

Sound pollution

In Sound pollution we have pollution of sounds. During festive seasons, use of DJ’s and digital sound system disturbs ecological balance of the environment. Similarly, our localities are polluted by use of such things. Bursting of crackers of high decimals range also create noise pollution. Similarly, aerodromes should be located away from the cities.

Henceforth take a pledge today to free our planet Earth from all sorts of pollution. The best and simple procedure to deal with pollution is that each one should plant one tree and take care of it till it grows fully to give shade, fruits, oxygen and many more things.

Remember nature is created by Almighty Allah and we cannot go against the laws of nature. If anyone dares than he or she would perish in the end. After all the beautiful Earth is the only planet for us to live survive and die.
