Focus of Essay The subject of my essay is air and water pollution and the impacts they have on the environment. My essay will also provide solutions and ways to reduce these types of pollution in the future. I chose this topic because it is an increasing problem around the world and it has a lot of relevance to material discussed during this course. Research and Analysis Environmental pollution is the mixing of harmful pollutants into the environment causing disturbance to the natural processes and cycles. Pollution has changed the face of the Earth, as it has become a global concern for us today. It is slowly destroying our environment and many plant and animal species are becoming extinct because of this issue. Production of solid and liquid wastes on the large scale from various industries, emissions of hazardous gases, deforestation, global warming, and many more problems originated by humans are the main reasons why pollution is increasing worldwide. Pollution can come in many different forms and each type has distinctive and startling impacts on our environment. One of the most hazardous types of pollution is air pollution. Varieties of foreign particles, toxic gases and other pollutants released from human activities are affecting the fresh air which has an adverse effect on the living beings on our planet. Air pollution can come directly from industrial and vehicular smoke. Some of the most common air pollutants are carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen oxides (Science Daily). These harmful gases emitted by various sources pollute the air and make it difficult to breath. The increase in the number of factories and vehicles has led to the growth of air pollution around the world. There has also been an increase in health issues related to this type of pollution. Two of the most common health problems related to air pollution are bronchitis and lung disease. Air pollution is

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
