Pollution Facts That You Need To Know About

Sep 17, 2008
Almost every day, new alarming pollution facts that will affect the earth, is being discovered. If we take each and every individual we'll actually discover a very low environment consciousness awareness that allows for the care and regeneration of ecosystems, the recycling of most house waste and the respect for nature in the tiniest aspect.

The following pollution facts serve as an example for our level of ignorance and lack of commitment to an environment-friendly lifestyle.

Ships and cruise boats

About 60 000 people dies every year because of the water pollution ships and cruise boats are creating. The most polluting and busiest ports in the world include Singapore, Hong Kong and Shanghai with the biggest health threat in the world. Such pollution facts should make us think about the future of maritime trade and transportation.

Power plants

To generate electricity, Power plants are becoming more and more popular. The bad thing about it is that it causes about three thousand lung cancer cases and over thirty-five thousand heart attacks only in the USA on a yearly basis. Moreover, the same statistics indicate that pollution facts are even more serious in the under-developed areas of the globe where the industrial and the private sectors do not apply consistent environment protection rules.

Air and water contamination

Some very important pollution facts refer to the close connection between air and water contaminants; thus the chemicals in the water evaporate and fall back on the ground under the form of acid rains. Rainwater is not treated like the one in the sewers and the pollutants are merely changing their aggregation state while still remaining present in the atmosphere or the water.

Soap

If you like to wash your car at home, chances are that the soap that you are using will pollute and destroy the chemical balance of an ecosystem. At the car-wash the waste water will be sent to the sewer and will eventually undergo some treatment before being released in the river, lake or ocean. The water from your back yard will not get this treatment and will release into the ground with all the gas residues and detergent in it.

Animals

Last but not least, animals can pollute too. Livestock that has access to a stream will carry potential and unwanted harmful bacteria to the water, not to mention that the water that runs over fields and pastures could very well bring fertilizers into the streams as well as in the underground water sources.
