           FORMS OF POLLUTION ,[object Object],Air pollution, the release of chemicals and particulates into the atmosphere.  Common gaseous air pollutants include carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides produced by industry and motor vehicles.  Photochemical ozone and smog are created as nitrogen oxides and hydrocarbons react to sunlight. Light pollution, includes light trespass, over-illumination and astronomical interference. Littering
VARIOUS TYPES OFPOLLUTION Noise pollution, roadway noise, aircraft noise, industrial noise.  Soil contamination occurs when chemicals are released by spill or underground leakage. Thermal pollution, is a temperature change in natural water bodies caused by human influence. Water pollution, by the discharge of wastewater from commercial and industrial waste into surface waters.
CAUSES   OF        ONMENTAL POLLUTION Air pollution produced by ships may alter clouds, affecting global temperatures. Air pollution comes from both natural and man made sources.   Motor vehicle emissions are one of the leading causes of air pollution. Metals production factories, plastics factories, and other heavy industry.  Agricultural air pollution comes from contemporary practices which include spraying of pesticides and herbicides.
EFFECTS OF ENVIRONMENT POLLUTION ON HUMANS Human health. Adverse air quality can kill many organisms including humans. Ozone pollution can cause diseases, throat inflammation, chest pain, and congestion. Water pollution causes approximately 14,000 deaths per day, mostly due to contamination of drinking water by untreated sewage in developing countries. Oil spills can cause skin irritations and rashes.
HUMAN HEALTH Noise pollution induces hearing loss, high blood pressure, stress, and sleep disturbance. People with heart or lung disorders are under additional risk. Children and infants are also at serious risk. Lead and other heavy metals have been shown to cause neurological problems. Chemical and radioactive substances can cause cancer and as well as birth defects.
EFFECTS OF ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION Water pollution. Global warming. Toxins may pass through trophic levels, becoming exponentially more concentrated in the process. Carbon dioxide emissions cause ocean acidification. The emission of greenhouse gases leads to global warming which affects ecosystems in many ways.

Ozone pollution can cause diseases, throat inflammation, chest pain, and congestion. Water pollution causes approximately 14,000 deaths per day, mostly due to contamination of drinking water by untreated sewage in developing countries. Oil spills can cause skin irritations and rashes.

Children and infants are also at serious risk. Lead and other heavy metals have been shown to cause neurological problems. Chemical and radioactive substances can cause cancer and as well as birth defects.

Carbon dioxide emissions cause ocean acidification. The emission of greenhouse gases leads to global warming which affects ecosystems in many ways.
  • 12. ENVIRONMENT Nitrogen oxides are removed from the air by rain and fertilise land which can change the species composition of ecosystems. Smog and haze can reduce the amount of sunlight received by plants and damage them. Soil can become infertile and unsuitable for plants.
