...Pollution Introduction The earth’s ecosystem has continually been threatened due to the perennial problem of pollution. To this end,adverse effects on the earth’s ecosystem have contributed to the degradation in the quality of air, water, soil and health of living organisms. Moreover, in some instances, scientific evidence has shown that extinction of species has been caused due to extreme pollution of their habitats. Over and above this, the global crisis of climate change has been attributed to the increasing pollution levels as a result of unsustainable human processes. Evidently, pollution has been in...

...Pollution Pollution is caused when air, water or soil gets contaminated by discharge of harmful substances. Pollution causes imbalance in the ecosystem by causing harm and discomfort to living organisms. Pollution can be prevented if resources like raw materials, water and energy are utilized in proper way and harmful materials are substituted by materials which are less hazardous (“What is Pollution Prevention”, n.d.). By steps taken for eliminating toxic substances from production process and by diminishing production of harmful materials people can safeguard the environment and human health.

...Pollution of Learning Types of pollution Air pollution This refers to the accumulation of gases, radiations and solid particles in the air in sufficient amount that can cause harm or endanger living organisms. Air pollution occurs as a result of emission of hydrocarbons, oxides of carbon, oxides of nitrogen, sulfur dioxides, particulates and nuclear waste in the air. The bulk of these air pollutants emanates from automobiles, burning of fossil fuels, nuclear and industrial activities (Hill, 2010).

In the ancient times, when many parts of the world were still undiscovered, Far East, which is now Middle East, remained secluded from Europe because there were no water ways and water navigation was the only method of communication. In 19th century, the building of Suez Canal brought about a radical change and Red Sea was now connected with Mediterranean and consequently to Europe. This connection has increased the importance of Red Sea a hundred folds. “Total six percent...
