DAY: 31 JULY 2014
Our environment is getting worse day by day, and we are suffering for other peoples and our mistakes. It's getting harder and harder for our families to stay healthy with all the bad things we are around everyday. We are affected by our environment, and more people are getting sicker and sicker. This could be affected our families and our future one day.
Pollution is one of environmental problems that has been through in Malaysian. In Malaysia, the rate of pollution higher than in other country. Pollution is an issue that involved in the modern world that we are live today. There are many types of pollution usually water,air, and noise pollution. Pollution in our environment totally will give affect to our quality of life. Our naturally beautiful country become ugly because it is suffering from the environmental pollution. Next, pollution can also cause many various health problems and may cause death if it is widespread for a long period.
Air pollution is cause by the emission of toxic gases from vehicles, factories and open burning by the community. Nowadays, there are more and more vehicles on the road as the technology has been improved widely. Many people like to driving to their destination rather than using public transportation. Automobiles provides transport to millions people around the world to enable them to travel to their workplace, school and other places, therefore, the air around us is getting more polluted by the carbon dioxide that is emitted. Carbon monoxide is another type of gas that known as harmful to the environment as it can cause the reduction of oxygen in the bloodstream.
Another example of contributor to air pollution is the manufacturing factories. The manufacturing of products in factories also causing air pollution. Factories release toxic gases to environment. Some factories use coal to generate heat and energy. As result from the burning of coal, carbon dioxide is release into the environment. Other than factories, open burning also cause air pollution. many people still practising open burning as a wat to disposing their household wasted. Although burning our household waste is the best way of getting rid of our rubbish, it is harmful as it cause worsening of the air quality. As result, air pollution cause people to suffer from health problems such as chest pain and asthma. In more horofic case, people can suffering from a lung cancer.
Water pollution also a problem that we are currently facing. The marine life is the first to suffer from water pollution as they depend on the water nutients in the water to stay alive. As result, our country was rich of beautiful corals, and unique species of fish. Besides ruining our marine life, the dissappearance of marine life will affect the source of the livehood of fisherman not to mention our source of food. Furthemore, water pollution also cause by harmful substances from industries, farms and severage systems which are dumped into our sources of water such as rivers and lakes. This irresponsible act will ruining our drinking water and can cause serious health problems and even brought to death. By drinking impure water, many people often suffers from many water borne disease. So it is high time to minimize water pollution. Awareness of public should be raise. Furthemore, mass media also can play their role in this situation.
Noise pollution is another form of pollution. Noise from heavy machinery and vehicles can cause hearing problems and in extreme cases, deafness. As there is growing number of vehicles on the road, we are exposed to noise pollution every day. The government in advanced countries encourage their citizens to take the public buses and trains by providing an affordable and efficient transportation system. This effort discourages people from driving their private vehicles and consequently reduces the number of vehicles on the road.
There can ba a sollution to helping our environment. If we reach out to people who don;t care about our environment, we could change their point of view of things. We could tell them about how bad things was our world and it may change their prospective on things. To make this come true, we must worked together to reudce pollution so that we can achieved it and give benefits for our new generations in the future. St the saying goes by, precaution is batter than cure. So, lets conbine our unity together by recycle and conserve the world for the better future.
