Pollution Around the World

Around the world pollution is becoming a big problem

This is what pollution caused.

With pollution this bad, it's getting dangerous for human survival. In 1952, London witnessed the danger of "The Killer Smog" that was made out of air pollution. Almost 4,000 people died and many more were ill. Mean while, 4,868 mi. away china is dumping chemicals into there rivers. Because of this the waters have turned yellow and green. Some people around the world are trying to clean up the mess, but it is proving to be easier said then done.

the weather is changing

"Weather changes throughout the globe!" The weather is changing because of pollution. For example, in China, Russia ,and sometimes the United States the rain turns to acid. Acid rain is caused by sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides when it gets released into the air. Another change of the weather is global warming. Global warming is where the land heats up and things start to melt. 2016 was the hottest year on record!

water pollution

Water pollution is polluting the the earth and making the waters dangerous. In the north pacific ocean there is the great garbage patch. It was made from marine debris, man made solid material, which is getting worse by the second. Another big problem in the ocean is non-point pollution. Non-point pollution is dirt from farms that spread to the water.

air pollution

Air pollution is dangerous for our health. Air pollution can cause asthma, bronchitis, and emphysema. If air pollution is created in one place it can travel around the world and can stay in the air for up to 10 days. Smog, dust, soot, are all types of air pollution. Thankfully the air quality is better than it was 20 years ago so we are not in immediate danger.

This is what will happen if we stop polluting Earth

Our world is very polluted and is causing problems. If we stop polluting our Earth we won't have all these problems to face. Then maybe we will be living a healthier life. Thanks to Earth day we have been cleaning our Earth better. Thanks to NASA, National Institution of Environmental Health, and Wikipedia for helping us on our page.
