Transcript of The Decline of Earth’s Ecosystems

Pollution is when there is poison or harmful effect to an environment due to an introduction of a conflicting substance.
Causes of pollution in the air, water, and soil damages humans, animals, and the Earth.
Air pollution is a mix of different gases and solid particles in the air.
Air pollutants are changing our environment
“Release of sulfur dioxide and hazardous gases into the air causes global warming and acid rain; which in turn have increased temperatures, erratic rains and droughts worldwide; making it tough for the animals to survive” (Rinkesh)
Air Pollution
Water Pollution
Once water is contaminated, many crops and shorelines are destroyed by chemicals and garbage.
Treating the water systems is a very costly thing and water pollution is making it more expensive to keep them clean and safe.
Spraying pesticides also affects the water systems.
Plants end up polluting the groundwater, and it is spread all over, making many crops and bodies of water imbalanced.
Oil damages the water and everything in it and it is very hard to clean out because of how gigantic the disaster is.
When air pollution gets into the ozone, it forms smog which is a buildup of CO2.
Smog makes it difficult for sunlight to get to the earth.
If plants cannot get sunlight properly then it is hard for them to go through photosynthesis.
The Ozone
The Decline of Earth’s Ecosystems
By Hailey Oakes
Increased CO2 levels lead to the melting of the polar ice caps, which is devastating to the wildlife that live there.
Air pollution can also cause acid rain which harms everyone in that area.
“The decrease in quality of air leads to several respiratory problems including asthma and lung cancer. Chest pain, congestion, throat inflammation, cardiovascular disease, respiratory disease are some of diseases that can be causes by air pollution” (Rinkesh).
Other Causes
Soil Pollution
Contamination of the soil that people use to grow produce has a substantial consequence for all living things.
Industries are dumping chemicals into the ground, and it is affecting many people.
This is leading to a decreasing number of valuable crops, and there is not a lot people can do about it because once the soil is contaminated all of the plants are ruined.
Pollution causes many disastrous effects in the air, soil, and water.
There are other forms of pollution such as light, noise, thermal, and radioactive.
People need to be aware of the destructive effects that pollution has on the planet.
