Pollution and solution
Pollution is the introduction of harmfull waste into the environment. These harmfull waste are called pollutants.
Pollutants can be natural, such as volcanic ash. They also can be created by human activity, such as trash and
Runoff produced by factories. Pollutants damage the quality of aur, water and land.
Many things that are needed for human beings creates pollution. Cars spew pollutants from their exhaust pipes, burning coal to generate electricity pollutes the air. Industries and homes generate garbage and sewage that can pollute the land and water. Pesticides—chemical poisons used to kill weeds and insects—seep into waterways and harm wildlife.
All living things—from one-celled microbes to blue whales—depend on Earth’s supply of air and water. When these resources are polluted, all forms of life are threatened.
Pollution is a global problem. Although urban areas are usually more polluted than the countryside, pollution can spread to remote places where no people live. For example, pesticides and other chemicals have been found in the Antarctic ice sheet. In the middle of the northern Pacific Ocean, a huge collection of microscopic plastic particles forms what is known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.
