Pollution is affecting many individuals and life, as we know it. We need to do something about how it’s affecting our world. That’s why I urge the issue that more people should realize that pollution is an issue that needs to be prevented because of its negative consequences. Which are health affects, the total destruction of environments, and the death of animals and plants. More awareness must be brought up amongst the people and they must realize the long-term benefits it has for the world. Pollution is causing the destruction of environments and habits resulting in many adverse affects. The types of environments that are heavily damaged by pollution is normally freshwater ones.

Turning more heads against pollution prevention. The argument on pollution prevention is a no brainer because the pros simply out way the cons. We are all human and as humans we should want what’s best for each other. Its time for our generation to stopping conforming to the ideologies of being conservative and short sighted. We need to look further and as a society think as visionaries. If we want to survive, the harsh reality is we need to stop polluting and only then we can be sure of the development of a future
