Water Pollution – Major Problem in our World Today
Water pollution is the major problem in our world today and, is a major hazard that causes many problems to the people and environment. Water pollution needs to be stopped because pollution is going into lakes, rivers, streams, and oceans and its been killing land and water animals for years. Pollution is the introduction of contaminants into a natural environment that causes instability, disorder, harm or discomfort to the ecosystem. Many living things suffer from polluted water. Humans, animals, and other organisms depend on water to live. Pollution kills all kinds of animals every year. So what will happen if nothing is done to save our polluted water? “”Sooner or later, we will have to recognise that the Earth has rights, too, to live without pollution.”” (Evo Morales, Water pollution).
Water pollution has a big impact in many households. Many homes all around the world use water for cooking, cleaning, washing, and in some places growing crops. The issue here is whether or not the water being used is safe from pollution or not. There are different ways in which water becomes polluted. Some pollution actually comes from home sewage that is poured into lakes, streams, and rivers. A way of classifying these wastes found in water is by whether they are degraded by natural processes. Water Pollution is a current issue that has serious consequences and, it progresses everyday in our lakes, oceans, rivers and other bodies of water. “”Today we’re dumping 70 million tons of global warming pollution into the environment, and tomorrow we could be dump more, and there is a effective worldwide response.”” (Al gore, Pollution around the world).
There are diseases, deaths and illnesses because of the pollution. People keep on throwing trash and industrial wastes into our clean water. If this continues, the quality of our water will deteriorate, and without it everything dies, including us. Water pollution is destroying our world, but fortunately we can count on special treatments for this kind of problem. The world is increasingly challenged. Population growth, pollution, over-consumption, unsustainable patterns, social conflict, climate change, loss of nature. People keep on throwing trash and industrial wastes into our clean water. If this continues the quality of our water will deteriorate, and without it everything dies. Water pollution is destroying our world, but fortunately we can count on special treatments for this kind of problem. How is the pollution killing people and animals? “”It is the contamination of water by foreign matter such as organisms, chemicals, and industrial or other wastes”” (Encarta 96).
There is also a effect on rain as well and people call it “”acid rain””. The effects of acid rain are most clearly seen in the aquatic, or water, environments, such as streams, lakes, and marshes. Acid rain flows to streams, lakes, and marshes after falling on forests, fields, buildings, and roads. Acid rain also falls directly on aquatic habitats. Most lakes and streams have a pH between 6 and 8. However, some lakes are naturally acidic even without the effects of acid rain. “”Acid rain has become a serious environmental concern for several decades.”” (Frances Beinecke, Acid rain). There is also a climate change as well. “”Pollution from human activities is changing the Earth’s climate. We see the damage that a disrupted climate can do: on our coasts, our farms, forests, mountains, and cities. Those impacts will grow more severe unless we start reducing global warming pollution now.””(Frances Beinecke 96).
Water pollution is the cause of our disciplined actions and irresponsibility. We, humans are only creating problems that consequently we will also carry the burden of these problems.We all know that water pollution can affect our health badly and seriously. Itcan cause such sicknesses and diseases that will badly affect our health. We All know how important water is. We all know how important water is. Water is essential to our body. Neither wen or every living thing can’t survive without water. And so therefore, we should keep, protect, save, and help prevent our waters from being polluted,we should act as early as now, we should save rivers, seas and oceans, another bodies of water because we will also bare the burden of this problem.We should not wait for the time until people are competing just to get sufficient, fresh and clean water, the time where clean water is insufficient to the people and animals, and the time where in our sources of water are diminishing or until the time where there are totally no sources of water.
