This world needs the good environment. People should protect our homestead. Society is focus on pollution in river all over the world. As we know water is spring of life. We can't live without it, and water in river is more important for human's daily life. It is a big problem. It is the major factories and industries that are causing the problem. We should find some good ways to prevention and mitigation. Let us to join protect action, in order to ourselves.Water pollution is a serious problem threatening the survival of human beings, plants and animals. It is urgent that some strong measures be adopted to deal with the problem. Most of them produce by the cities and towns. With the

The Current State of Water Pollution
One of the most differentiating factors of the planet Earth is the abundant presence of water. The Earth is almost 75% water. The substantial amount of water on the planet allows the vast and diverse biotic population to thrive. Without water, none of the life on the planet would be living, Earth would look less green and blue, and more dry like Venus or Mars. However, one of the most prominent environmental epidemics is the pollution of the Earth’s water bodies. According to the WWF, water pollution is characterized by “toxic substances” entering water bodies, and then “getting dissolved in them, lying suspended in the water or depositing on the bed

When the water in our rivers, lakes, and oceans becomes polluted it can endanger
wildlife, make our drinking water unsafe, and threaten the waters where we swim and
fish. Some people believe that the pollution of our lakes and rivers is not a problem right
now and is a problem for the future that modern technology will be able to fix, wrong.
According to P. K. Goel author of the book Water Pollution: Causes, Effects and Control,
“Most of the wastewater, statistics indicate around 60% of it, is discharged into rivers
without being treated” (Goel). This is a high pollution of the environment and also a big
health risk to the people who rely on the water downstream. Water

Second, the damage to the human health through pollution of air, soil
and food with chemicals and other radioactive. Third, the damage to
the aesthetic aspects of the environment such as waste, garbage,
smoke and dust. Fourth, the damage that doesn't appear impact only
after a long time, but with a cumulative effect, such as cancers
(substances that cause cancer) and this is an important reason.
Types of Pollution

One type of pollution we find evidence of is water pollution. "You're glumping the pond where the Humming-Fish hummed." All the Gluppity-Glupp and all the Schloppity-Schlopp made by the machinery chugging is being dumped right into the pond. What is the consequence of putting all this pollution into the water?

As earth’s temperatures continue to become more extreme due to global warming (extremely hot summers and cold winters), our agricultural practices are endangered. Many plants and animals rely on certain weather conditions to thrive, and global warming has resulted in the loss of many crops and animals. Most crops, such as wheat, corn, and soy have what's known as an “optimal growth temperature”, meaning that they thrive under a certain temperature range. When the temperatures exceeds or fails to meet these temperatures for extended period of time, mass crop death can result. This is harmful because it not only leads to more expensive food prices, but can

Most people often take for granted the simple things in life, which although simple, are also the foundation of life itself. These simple things come in the form of clean air, water, and land for us and our future generations. The protection of the environment has become increasingly important as we now realize the damage that our generation along with previous generations have done to the environment. From bustling New England cities to the quite farmlands of the Midwest, America has come to realize the need to relate and protect the environment from industrial and agricultural pollution, thus the EPA was formed.The protection of ?human health and the environment? is the simple yet

result.Pollutants such as sulfur dioxide, nitrogen oxides, ozone and peroxyacl nitrates (PANs), cause direct damage to leaves of crop plants and trees when they enter leaf pores (stomates). Chronic exposure of leaves and needles to air pollutants can also break down the waxy coating that helps prevent excessive water loss and damage from diseases, pests, drought and frost. "In the midwestern United States crop losses of wheat, corn, soybeans, and peanuts from damage by ozone and acid deposition amount to about $5 billion a year"" (Socha). We need to low pollution to keep our crop plants and trees healthy.Lastly, during the past hundred years, air pollution has become a major, persistent problem

In Prehistory the discovery of fire first started pollution. The burning of natural and manmade materials is killing our planet, we should find an unlimited and non-pollutant resource to fuel our cars and heat our homes. Hydrogen is a good alternative to gasoline because it is non-pollutant and a bountiful resource. The polluting of the oceans are killing fish and mammals alike, when the seaweed is exposed to the oil it immediately absorbs it. Seaweed is the main food of numerous sea creatures including the sea otter, an endangered species. The endangerment of animals should also be stopped for example The Javan rhinoceros was once widespread throughout the Oriental Realm from Bengal

, forest fire is one of the most common problems of the environment these days and it’s another major cause of the air pollution. For example, trees are being cut down for industrial reasons and a lot of factories are replacing forest gradually; these results in high concentration of toxic gases in the air. Furthermore, the human population keeps growing and is growing quickly, but trees are being cut down every day; this imbalance creates more carbon dioxide and less oxygen. Carbon dioxide is the gas that has negative effects to our atmosphere and increases the greenhouse effect.
Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas which means that it is including water vapor, ozone, and nitrous oxide. The

4. We then took samples of leaves and biomass in the river to find macroinvertebrates. We
would find these creatures and organize them in ice trays. Then we would classify them

plastic it is almost impossible because now a days almost everything comes in plastic or has pieces of

An In-Depth Look at Saving Our Planet
Life as we know it on Earth is in danger. Various forms of pollution such as fossil fuel consumption polluting our atmosphere, physical trash piling up on land and tainting our water sources and endangering plant and animal life are all contributing to the steady decline in Earth’s health. If we can’t reverse its effects, the entire human population, its governments and companies, plant and animal life, and the Earth itself will come to an end sooner than we would like. To find an effective solution, the human population needs to analyze just how much damage each is doing, and then systematically develop alternatives to ultimately

In the twenty-fist century alone, urban areas have doubled, plastic has been increased a factor of ten, fifty percent more trees are being cut for lumber, and almost five-hundred areas of the oceans are covered with enough trash, where the water cant be oxygenated enough to support marine life.
