Pollution in Water
Transcript of Pollution in Water
Pollution is an addition of a contaminant to a natural environment that causes a change that can potentially be harmful.
From melting glaciers and ice caps, to sewage and oil spills, pollution has a large affect on marine life. Water pollution is a main cause of the Malaria disease. It also causes typhoid which destroys aquatic life during rainy seasons.
Pollution in Water
Pollution happens in the air when harmful materials are introduced to Earth's atmosphere. This form pollution primarily comes from the exhaust of cars and smog from factories. Slowly but surely this pollution, a main factor of global warming, will deteriorate the ozone; which can be and has already began to be catastrophic.
Pollution in Air
"Yet without it, life on Earth would be impossible. A fragile layer of ozone 25 km above Earth's surface is all that stands between us and some of the harshest UV rays from the sun. The ozone molecule O3 blocks radiation which would otherwise burn skin and cause cancer."
Life without n OZONE...
How Does This AFFECT Us?
Chronic respiratory disease, lung cancer, heart disease, and even damage to the brain, nerves, liver, or kidneys are possible affects of an over exposure to pollution. Exponential exposure can increase lung difficulties in children and can be fatal to elderly as it may aggravate or complicate medical conditions.
How can we STOP it?
We can stop air pollution by utilizing electric cars, use energy efficient lightbulbs and other appliances, and by conserved energy: through shutting off lights, computers, etc.
We can prevent further water pollution by decreasing the amount of litter we produce. We can also put an end to dumping. Dumping is the disposal of garbage, waste or unwanted materials in a careless or hurried way.
