Transcript of Visual Pollution
What is it?
Visual pollution is an aesthetic issue and refers to the impacts of pollution that impairs one's ability to enjoy a vista or view.
What damage can it cause?
Bright signs and lights can actually be a distraction to drivers and can cause car accidents. Pedestrians can trip over, or bicyclists can run into objects.
Also can cause...
...illness due to unsanitary garbage bins. Also potential health concerns about power lines! Studies show increased risk of childhood leukemia with residential proximity to power lines.
Don't forget about the animals!
animals are effected by visual pollution because they're mistaking the trash for food, which is killing them off.
Visual pollution is caused by all man-made things! We are the ones causing visual pollution.
Breaking it down!
Visual pollution disturbs the visual areas of people by creating negative changes in the natural environment. Billboards, open storage of trash, space debris, telephone towers, electric wires, buildings and automobiles are forms of visual pollution. An overcrowding of an area causes visual pollution.
What can we do?
As population keeps growing, we are building more houses and cities. We can help visual pollution by keeping our garbage under control and picked up, and maybe some dimmer lights in the cities... but there is really no way to escape visual pollution.
