What makes industrial pollution so bad?



  1. 0 Votes

    Industries are known to emit undesirable gases such as carbon monoxide and sulfur dioxide that cause air pollution. This type of pollution affects the health of humans, plants, animals materials, and the atmosphere. Industrial effluents are discharged in to rivers and canals and include matters such as coal, dyes, soaps, pesticides, fertilizers, plastic, and rubber. These organic and inorganic matters cause water pollution and again, affect the health of humans, plants, animals, materials, and the atmosphere. Solid industrial wastes and water can contain toxic metals and harmful substances that are dumped in isolated pockets of land causing the pollution of our earth and soil (Preserve Articles, 2011).

    A number of things: industrial activity creates chemical reactions that aren’t unnatural, the gaseous by-products of these reactions contain gases that like methane and carbon dioxide which may appear to dissipate in the atmosphere but actually reside there and accumulate as more flue gas is released into the air. This accumulation has had a greenhouse effect on the planet in that the suns UV rays which normally leave the atmosphere once the Earth’s surface cools, reside in within the atmosphere causing a global heating effect.

    Other problems with industrial pollution have involved irresponsible disposal of chemical waste into water supplies causing adverse health effects in nearby communities. Incidents like this were normally kept quiet by corporate settlements. Some gaseous by-product contain carcinogens which can drift into water supplies or food supplies. In addition to local communities, the health of local wildlife is also compromised by these pollutants.
