These developments were able to lead to a variety of pollutions, and examples include water and air pollution. They also accelerate the environmental pollution, through the destruction of the ecosystem, and this leads to the exploitation of resources and disposal of wastes inefficiently.
Environmental pollution can simply be defined the identification of a harmful substance to both the environment and human life. (David Briggs, 2003, p.2). Environmental pollution results from a number of human activities that range from family level to community level. These activities can have devastating impacts on the health situation whereby people end up losing their dear lives because of activities that could be avoided if precautions were taken. Environmental pollution has an effect on the ecosystem, affecting the air, water and the land. Theoretical explanations have come up to try and explain these phenomena at the height of urban and industrial development. Yet, despite their efforts to come up with the explanations, countries that suffer most are those still living under very poor conditions and whose economies do not stand to protect the matter.
These poor nations still suffer from the exploitations of the highly developed in terms of policy formation at the international level. Countries like China and the USSR have suffered the effects of pollution resulting from unchecked development strategies and their leaders have come out strongly to support any interventions to eradicate the pandemic.
Olei (p.17) states that, in China and USSR there is an ecological continuity that, illustrates how development without democratic counterweight can slowly lead to poverty through the depletion of natural resources. As documented by Thompsons et al. (2003, p.12) our current approaches to production, use and nonuse can not last long hence parading fears over wildlife and human health. That we have considerable knowledge on environmental hazards, and information on human health
