Short Essay on Pollution

Pollution

Introduction :    Pollution is the contamination of nature and the earth’s atmosphere. Along with the progress of science and technology, the intensity of pollution is increasing day by day.

Types of pollution :          There are four types of pollution, i.e., air pollution, water pollution, sound pollution, and land pollution.

Reasons behind pollution :           Excessive burning of fossil fuels is leading to air pollution. Harmful smokes and fumes are being released from the factories, vehicles, power plants etc. These are getting mixed with the environment. Likewise, harmful and non-biodegradable waste products are being thrown into water and land, thereby causing water and land pollution. Too much noise can also affect human health. So, it can cause sound pollution.

The effects of pollution :                               Human health is badly affected by pollution. Air pollution may cause bronchitis, asthma, and other respiratory diseases. Too much release of CO₂ and other harmful gases is depleting the ozone layer. Drinking water from flowing water sources may cause illness because garbage and filth are thrown into it. Pollution of land decreases fertility of soil. Sound pollution affects our auditory organs.

Measures to check pollution :     Pollution can be checked by creating awareness among people to keep the environment clean and promote afforestation. We should stop using loudspeakers at public places to prevent sound pollution.
