SYNOPSIS
THE MOST DISASTROUS AFFAIR ALARMING
CURRENTLY IS “GLOBAL WARMING” DUE TO
SEVERE ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION.
“PREVENTION IS BETTER THAN CURE ’’
SHOULD BE THE ONLY SLOGAN AND SHOULD
CREATE AWARNESS IN EACH INDUSTRIALIST’S
MIND OVER THE WORLD .
IMPLEMENTATION OF PROGRAMMES,
PLANTING OF NEW TREES IN LAKHS, FOCUSSING
ON GREEN REVOLUTIONARY SCHEMES ARE
ESSENTIAL. USE WEAPONS FOR
CONSTRUCTION AND AVOID USING FOR
DESTRUCTION.
POLLUTION LEADS TO TRAGEDY.
PREVENTION LEADS TO SAFETY.

Introduction
Pollution, contamination of Earth’s environment
with materials that interfere with human health,
The quality of life, or the natural functioning of
ecosystems (living organisms and their physical
surroundings). Although some environmental
pollution is a result of natural causes such as
volcanic eruptions, most is caused by human activities.
There are two main categories of polluting materials, or pollutants.
Biodegradable pollutants are materials, such as sewage, that
rapidly decompose by natural processes. These pollutants
become a problem when added to the environment faster than
they can decompose (see Sewage Disposal). Non bio-degradable
pollutants are materials that either do not decompose or
decompose slowly in the natural environment. Once
contamination occurs, it is difficult or impossible to remove these
pollutants from the environment.

What is Pollution?

Introduction of pollutants into the


environment which deteriorate the
nature and harm living resources
and ecosystems thereby
endangering human health.

RADIOACTIVE WATER THERMAL


SOURCES

 Smoke from factories


 Exhaust fumes from
motor vehicles like cars, buses,

trucks, two-wheelers
 Power stations & Fertilizer factories
 Waste gases from factories &
houses
 Smoking
PREVENTION

Using Battery operated Vehicles


Set up Emission control plants
Use pollution control equipment
in industries
Keep motor vehicles in good condition to
reduce fumes
Use bicycles, public transport or electrical
vehicles
whenever possible.
SOURCES
 Waste from factories
Man-made chemicals used in
farming
 Industrial and household waste
 Throwing rubbish into rivers,
tanks and on beaches.
PREVENTION

Don’t allow waste water and chemicals to flow


into rivers and wells
Keep beaches and water
sources clean
Set up Effluent treatment Plants
STOP throwing things away
SOURCES

Loudspeakers, car and bus


horns
Bursting loud fire crackers
PREVENTION
 Reduce the use of
loudspeakers
in public places and residential
areas
 Use horns in vehicles sparingly
 Avoid bursting loud fire crackers
especially where there are aged
people and small children
SOURCES
Nuclear power plants
Nuclear weapons
Transportation
Disposal of nuclear waste
Uranium mining
PREVENTION

By not using nuclear weapons


SOURCES
Power plants creating electricity from fossil fuels
 Water as a cooling agent in industrial facilities
 Deforestation of the shoreline
 Soil erosion
SOURCES

High intensity Light Sources


Laser beams
PREVENTION
 Utilizing light sources of minimum
intensity is necessary to accomplish
the light's purpose. Turning lights off using a
timer or occupancy sensor or manually when
not needed.
 Improving lighting fixtures, so that they direct
their light more accurately towards where it is
needed, and with less side effects.
 Adjusting the type of lights used, so that the
light waves emitted are those that are less likely
to cause severe light pollution problems.
