Pollution is a Problem for Everyone and the Earth

As residents of this planet Earth, it is our responsibility to be mindful of what we are doing to our planet. As the Earth continues to spin, all its inhabitants are all trying to survive and trying to fulfil their basic needs. Of the plethora of different species as well as humans that occupy the Earth, the Earth itself must survive as well. Although, being an inhabitant of Earth can have adverse effects that impact the Earth there are ways to minimize said effects.

A great example of these negative effects that impacts Earth is pollution. Noise pollution, air pollution, any pollution is bad for the Earth. Pollution easily affects us in many ways such as terrible air conditions for breathing which can potentially lead to cancer, or loud construction sites which can damage our hearing, even worse than it might already be. While these effects may seem bad for humans and even all creatures alike, the Earth also suffers from said pollutions as well. These pollutions affect environments on Earth, such as increasing the amount of Haze seen in the air (which in turn is bad for inhabitants (us)). These pollutions also can deplete the ozone layer, in which is supposed to help, however by polluting the air with bad chemicals with chlorofluorocarbons and hydrofluorocarbons, the ozone layer begins to deplete, which is again bad for the Earth and the inhabitants living in it as well.

Pollution is one of the worse effects on Earth and its inhabitants. Having breakdowns like such can and have led to bad living conditions and many other health problems. The Earth has and continues to suffer environmentally by an increase of haze and depletion of the ozone layer. It is a great thing to be mindful of how much the Earth and its inhabitants are really affected by climate change.
