Environment pollution is a global concern since it affects the environment and people’s health. All people in the world, as well as, animals are affected by environment pollution because the earth is our planet, our home and we are the inhabitants. This means every human being can make an effort of contributing towards the prevention of environment deterioration. This way we can help ourselves and our children while ensuring that there is a future generation that requires the sustainability of the environment. It is possible to combat environment pollution when we understand our immediate environment in terms of the forms and nature of pollution and the effects they have on our environment and health.

Many people are unaware of the effects

Also, diseases such as leukemia, skin cancer, cataracts, sun burns, skin cancer and plants damages are as a result of the UV rays that can no longer be absorbed by the ozone layer. Global warming has depleted the Ozone layers, and it’s not possible to shield human beings and plants from the harmful ultraviolet rays emitted by the sun. Carbon dioxide gases are emitted mainly from cars and factories. Currently, there are about 800 million vehicles that contribute the green house gases. This is mainly seen in the current warming of the globe such as glaciers, increased temperatures and migration. There is also the disruption of seasonal patterns, risen levels of the sea and the melting of polar glaciers and ice caps, animals and plant species northwards as they seek for cooler temperatures (Corfee-Morlot, Maslin, & Burgess, …show more content…
The earth surface temperature is expected to rise from 5.5 Fahrenheit by the year 2100 from 2005. This shows that there is the need to take major steps in reducing greenhouse gas emissions from cars, factories and power plants that deal with burning fossil fuels (Miller & Spoolman, 2009, p 33).

Environment protection involves the participation of every single person on this planet. There is no need for assuming that global warming is not happening yet we see the changes that have taken place in the environment since we were young. Human activities, which contribute to greenhouse gases emissions, have to be stopped and controlled by strict government regulations. This way it will be possible to protect and sustain the environment for future generation and protect ourselves from diseases resulting from the Ozone layer dilapidation among other diseases resulting from living in a polluted
