In this document I will be talking about water and soil pollution. So many places in the world aren’t thinking about water and soil pollution. If you think of pollution you’re probably thinking of something you do to the world that will ONLY harm the soil. If you are thinking of that you are somewhat correct, but did you know yours and other people’s actions will harm yourself and other animals? The world is about 70% water so with that being said it is one of our main resources, but with plastic bags and Chemical waste our bodies of water have turned in to pools of poison. If you pollute way to much it will cause growing conditions for the plants around the polluted area, it will also cause acid rain, acid rain contains sulfuric and nitric acid which can damage bark, tree leaves, and hurt fine root hairs of many plants.
The plants need these fine hairs to be able to absorb water. Acid rain can be a result of mixing compounds including sulfur dioxide and nitrogen oxides with other chemicals and oxygen in the atmosphere. Water pollution can change photosynthesis in aquatic plants. According to https://www.hunker.com/12305798/how-does-pollution-affect-photosynthesisphotosynthesis is the process of where plants use sunlight and convert the sunlight into energy.
So the energy can be used to produce glucose or sugar by converting carbon dioxide into carbohydrates. Like i said before we are all actually polluting if we don’t get rid of our waste correctly. Human sewage contains germs that can cause lots of diseases including hepatitis, polio, cholera, and others. Some forms of water pollution can be very obvious including oil and gas. When we abuse lakes, rivers, ponds, and others we are actually harming the whole ecosystem, it could also disrupt the balance in nature.
The balance of nature is super important in our lives if we disrupt it we could exterminate the human race. When we get rid of things we have to be careful the way that we do it. You shouldn’t think of only yourself think of all those animals that are dying because of the ways we get rid of things. One more step could save an innocent animal’s life. The thing that hurts me he most is hearing that an animal could have died because i was being lazy about walking a few more steps and doing stuff the right way.
When you think about animals just remember take those few extra steps to save an animal’s life. Don’t take the easy way out all the way. When you pollute the soil you can also exterminate wildlife. The chemicals in polluted land can be taken in by plants and when we or any other animal eat the producer the animal that consumes the plant can be harmed.
