Why environmental management is so important?

It is just as crucial to safeguarding our environment as it is to protect ourselves. Pollution has put our planet in jeopardy. Pollutants from industry play a significant influence in contaminating and hurting the environment. Pollutants from industries and factories continue to degrade our environment, resulting in air pollution, water pollution, land pollution, and soil erosion, etc.

Believe it or not, according to a World Health Organization study, climate change, or global warming, was responsible for 3% of diarrhea, 3% of malaria, and 3.8 percent of dengue fever deaths worldwide in 2004. Furthermore, global warming-related mortality accounted for around 0.2 percent of all deaths in 2004, with 85 percent of those being children.

What is pollution?

Pollution is the release of harmful materials into the environment, and it is primarily caused by human activity. Water, air, and land pollution are all major pollutants. By polluting the earth’s atmosphere with physical, biological, and chemical pollutants, we continue to cause havoc on the environment’s regular processes.

Mining, extraction, over-farming, deforestation, sewage disposal, industrial wastes, nuclear wastes, chemical wastes, non-biodegradable wastes such as plastic, and other activities all contribute to the degradation and destruction of our ecosystem. These major types of pollution that endanger our environment are pollution of the air, water, land, and soil. Air pollution is regarded as one of the most serious hazards to the ecosystem, contributing to “Global Warming”.

Why is pollution control necessary?

Pollution – 

  1. Has a direct or indirect impact on the food we eat, the water we drink, and the air we breathe
  2. Has an adverse impact on people’s health
  3. Causes wheezing, coughing, asthma, and other respiratory problems, as well as diseases like cancer
  4. Will harm not only human life but also plant life, disrupting our ecosystem and generating an environmental imbalance
  5. Causes land infertility and ozone depletion.
  6. Leads to Climatic change or Global warming. Over 90% of the heat accumulated on Earth as a result of global warming has indeed been absorbed by the oceans. Warmer water can’t hold as much oxygen as cold water; hence decreased oxygen in the ocean is likely a result of warming. As marine plants and animals require oxygen for photosynthesis, respiration, and other functions, this has negative effects on marine life too. 

Every year, pollution kills about 1 million seabirds and 100,000 sea animals. According to World Health Organization, pollution kills an estimated seven million people worldwide.

In recent days, pollution has become a big concern in New Delhi, India. The rising population is a key contributor to the pollution problem. Increase in vehicles and industries, sewage, and liquid wastes all contribute to pollution here.

Throughout the year, Delhi suffers from air pollution. According to WHO (World Health Organization), out of 1650 world cities, the Delhi’s air quality is the worst of any major city in the world and this poor quality air irreversibly damages the lungs of 2.2 million or 50 percent of all children.

According to “Economic Times,” Delhi’s air quality remained “extremely poor” on October 25, with an AQI of 352, as an AQI of 301-400 is considered “very poor,” and 401-500 is considered “severe.” The Delhi government has made a number of steps to protect citizens from air pollution.  

India’s annual death due to air pollution is estimated to be around 2 million people. Chronic respiratory illnesses and asthma are the leading causes of death in India.
