as we all know, our country is in an unsatisfactory clean zone. so with this, I would like to invite all young people to join me to clean up the environment. there are many causes of environmental pollution. environmental pollution is divided into two factors, the first is pollution caused by natural factors and the second is pollution caused by human factors. here I will explain a little about the causes of environmental pollution from both factors.
the first is. sources of pollution caused by natural factors. among them is, air pollution. The cause of air pollution is a condition that involves the introduction of any chemical, particulate matter or biological material that can cause harm to air quality, discomfort to humans or other living organisms and damage the environment when it is released into the atmosphere. examples of air pollution are carbon dioxide, sulfur dioxide, odors, toxic metals such as copper lead and radioactive waste. air pollution stems from the emission of dirty smoke by industry directly into the air through factory chimneys, motor vehicles on the road and volcanic eruptions. among the effects of air pollution are ozone depletion, haze, acid rain and global warming. air pollution may affect the health, safety and comfort of people or property.
various efforts to address environmental issues have been made either by the government, the private sector and the community itself through legal and non-legal means but the results remain unsatisfactory. this situation is due to various weaknesses and constraints in implementing such measures. among its measures are, greening the area, use of unleaded petrol, recycling programs, through campaigns, legal action, and introducing environmental education to the public especially the young.
the second is, soil pollution. soil pollution can be defined as an act that occurs to an area so that there is a change of color, fertility, and erosion. it is caused by wastes in liquid or solid form consisting of organic, chemical or physical contaminants. the severity of soil contamination depends on soil fertility. the less fertile the soil, the more serious the pollution that occurs.
the cause of soil pollution is like, uncontrolled dumping of garbage. this matter is often found everywhere especially in industrial areas and residential areas. in addition, toxic and nuclear waste disposal, mining and logging activities.
the effects of soil pollution are, such as the spread of germs and diseases, soil quality deteriorates and soil erosion occurs.
among the measures to address the problem of soil pollution is, environmental education. This environmental education can cultivate a positive attitude in oneself and make a person better understand about environmental pollution. with a deep knowledge of pollution including the causes and consequences of pollution that occurs such as soil pollution, an individual will be more appreciative of the environment. in addition, holding awareness campaigns, among the campaigns that can be implemented are such as Cintailah Sungai Kita, Kitar Semula and Sahabat Alam. the crucial role of the mass media in addressing such issues. mass media is easy to influence and shape the way consumers think.
