In this industrial age, pollution
cannot be eliminated completely, but steps can be taken to reduce it. For air
pollution, the gases released during the burnt of the fossil fuels is the main
contributor for it. Therefore, we can start from reducing the burning of fossil
fuel and coal. We can use renewable or green energy sources such as solar
energy, hydro-power, geothermal energy and wind energy rather than relying on
fossil fuels or coal energy.
than that, we can use energy devices and always be mindful of energy
consumption. We must always make sure the TV, lights, fans, and any other
electronic appliances is turn off when not in use in order to reduce the
consumption of unnecessary energy. This is because large amount of fossil fuels
is burnt to produce electricity. Then, we can try to use CFL lights which
consume less electricity (Refer appendice-22).
CFL lights not only consume less electricity, it is also live longer, the
electricity bills for it is low and it can reduce pollution by consuming less
Besides that, pollution can be reduced by using individual level
prevention methods. Many ways can be used by the individual to help to reduce
air pollution. Firstly, individuals who are aware of the causes and effects of
pollution can spread the awareness for their family, friends, colleagues and
encourage them to use public transportation when heading to their destinations.
This is to reduced the released of greenhouse gasses from vehicles. Secondly,
we can use reuse, reduce and recycle method. Reusing some substances such as
papers, tissue papers, plastic bags or bottles can reduce the loads of pollution.
water pollution can me overcome through industrial waste water treatment. Loads of waste water containing high concentrations of
conventional water pollutants and other contaminants such as ammonia are normally
generated by industries. Thus, it required well-designed treatment and water
cooling systems to reduce the water pollution caused by industries. Pre-treatment
facilities and adoption of quality waste treatment protocols can be install for
the use to eliminate the toxic contaminants.
anti-pollution laws and regulations at local, state and international levels
are effective way to curtail water pollution. Laws plays an excellent role to
ensure water pollution levels are kept to the minimum. Environmental protection
policies such as the Clean Water Acts work to ensure that anti-pollution laws
are effective and apply to all significant waters including ground water. Anti-pollution
laws can as well establish measures that put restrictions for top water
pollution problems such as sewage and industrial waste treatments and garbage
management. These laws should be directed to marketplaces, industries,
hospitals, schools, and the local councils.
