When these trees are killed, an imbalance in the hydrologic cycle can occur. Without living trees to consume the precipitate, it must be consumed by the earth or any other plants. These will receive an excess of water, causing other problems in the hydrologic cycle. This in turn causes a chain reaction of death among our forests. Some regions are more susceptible to acid rain because they don't have enough Alkaline soil to "neutralize" the acid before it is able to destroy the rest of the soil or before it can run off into lakes or rivers.
Dumping the waste materials on the ground could lead to ground poisoning. Ground poisoning occurs when the ground is regularly in contact with poisonous materials, leading to the ground water being polluted and the land losing its fertility, causing great damage to the ecosystem. Loss of fertility in land can lead to drought. The methane gas produce by the decomposing piles of garbage causes air pollution. Apart from pollution, there is depletion of natural resources because raw materials are constantly being used to produce new products rather than being reused.
The effects can be catastrophic, depending on the kind of chemicals, concentrations of the pollutants and where the sources of water are polluted. Below, we will discuss a summary of some effects of water pollution. 1. Death of aquatic animals The main problem caused by water pollution is that it kills life that depends on these water living organisms. Dead fish, crabs, birds and sea gulls, dolphins, and many other animals are found on beaches, killed by
Theses kinds of things come from plants that have a drainage system that runs off into the water and they dumb the things that they won’t need anymore. These chemicals can be very harmful to animals. When sewage is thrown into the water an organic substance occurs. With this happening the water loses oxygen and with the lack of oxygen it can kill all of the aquatic organisms.

How bad can oil spilling be to the environment? Oil spills are bad for oceans, rivers, animals, fish, and birds that live in and around it. What we are going to go over is how they happen, how bad they are, and how they clean the mess up. “Oil spills are commonly occurred by the mistakes of men” (Oil Spills). The careless mistakes of bad maintains on vessels and equipment has played a part in a lot of oil spill accidents.”Some other oil spilling is when people do not want to pay for somebody to come and get it so they just dump it somewhere or some companies do the same thing” (Oil Spills.
The plant would die, causing the amount of food available to carnivorous mammals to drop. These situations change the entire ecosystem, since predators would begin to die along with their prey. While dams generate clean energy, they also are negatively impacting the ecosystems around them. During their construction, they use land that is essential for humans and animals alike. While they’re operating, many fish have gotten killed, which impacts the animals who feast upon them.
INTRODUCTION Ocean pollution is a serious issue that is harming both land and sea inhabitants. It is dropping economic levels and destroying the food chain by killing off the predators’ prey. The great pacific garbage patch is one of the world’s biggest garbage gyres, filled mostly with plastic and other tough biodegradable waste. Even though we don’t live in the ocean it still affects us in many ways, and before we clean up the ocean we must find a way to stop people from littering first. What is ocean pollution?
The chemical wastage of those industries is making the river water more and more dangerous day by day (Bhowmik, “Buriganga Pollution: Reason & Prospects”). Even now the local people cannot use the water of that river. Here, may be industries are important for one country’ pr... ... middle of paper ... ...own luxury. Industries, deforestation and killing animals- these have to be controlled if we want a safe earth for our future generation. If there will not be any people to live on earth because of these devastating activities, what will the usage of the wealth for what the people today is ruining our environment?
Additionally, ocean pollution significantly ruins the marine ecosystem because the death of even the tiniest organism as plankton causes a huge defect in the sequence of the animal food chain which means the smallest organism being consumed by a larger one when small fish species die huge fish or mammals such as whales seek to find other sources to consume, mostly they struggle till they die even polar bears may migrate . Overall the deaths of those animals lead to many fish species extinction and loss of diversity. Furthermore, the world faces a serious problem that human health is endangered because of ocean pollution which has a toxic influence on the food we eat due to chemicals that enter in marine animals’ structure. In the United States more than one-third of the shellfish are negatively affected by coastal pollution . Consequently, ocean pollution causes many diseases, such as typhoid, jaundice, dysentery, diarrhea, tuberculosis, and hepatitis.
These really affect not only animal life but the quality of the ocean. Ships and boats are the main cause for so much oil being in the water. These leaks can make a huge black spot in the middle of the ocean and animals can swim through there and get easily contaminated. In 1979, 1.1 million tons of oil was released into the ocean. Many animals could have eaten some oil and gotten infected.
