What could happen if we do not stop pollution?
The environment and climate change are two topics which cannot be ignored. With changes in weather patterns present and natural disasters appearing ever more prevalent, there have been calls to address energy use and pollution. Here are some of the kinds of pollution which have been identified:
Water pollution is incredibly common and can affect all manner of things from animals to plant life to human beings. Ways in which water pollution can occur include from agricultural run-off, oil spillages at sea and because of sewage. If left unchecked, the number of species in existence could be reduced. The quality of drinking water, as well as bathing water, is also at risk.
The increasing amount of carbon dioxide in the air is a real environmental issue. This kind of pollution can already be seen in major cities, with layers of smog, foggier skies and poor quality of air. The increase in the amount of flights being taken by people, especially short-haul budget ones, has also contributed to a rise in CO2 emissions. If left unchecked, air pollution could contribute to increasing temperatures, melted ice caps and flooding.
