There have been several environmental changes in the world recently occurring due to the pollution of the environment. Increase in production, manufacturing, the use of motor vehicles and basically dumping waste into the environment. This has brought about different types of pollution, each resulting in negative effects due to reducing quality air and other environmental features. If things keep going down this road, the future generations may not have a clean environment to come to, and it may even signify the end of our world. Some of the major environmental pollutions include air pollution, sound pollution, soil pollution and water pollution.

Air pollution occurs due to some dangerous gases being released into the environment in large quantities. If the gases are released in small quantities and over a long time, the environment has ways of cleaning itself out, but due to the increase in development and population, this is not possible. This threat for the future world has become a world issue which requires a quick and fast measure taken against

This effect is also manifested in areas where the rate of emissions is very high. Air pollution has also been blamed for the destruction of the ozone layer. The ozone layer is a layer found covering the earth’s atmosphere, and is credited for keeping the sun’s harmful rays out of our environment. Air pollution has been blamed for depleting this important layer, which takes years to form back after destruction. Acid rain is another condition caused by air pollution. Acid rain occurs when harmful gases accumulate in the air and through chemical processes, mix up with rain water and cause acidity to it. This type of rain ends up causing corrosion of buildings and anything the rain touches. Though the corrosion does not happen in one rainy day, it leads to the eventual decrease in quality and strength of the buildings (Mellanby,
