This entire planet is our home. We are the only species that systematically destroy our own habitat.

— Marianne Williamson

Pollution is Our Problem

Pollution prevention is a major global concern because of its harmful effects on people's health and the environment. Because we are all inhabitants on Earth, everyone is a stakeholder, and every person has something to contribute to advance effective pollution prevention awareness. Environmental protection is a natural extension of caring for ourselves, loving our children, and ensuring a sustainable future for generations to come.

"If we heal the earth, we heal ourselves."

We should all, therefore, accept personal responsibility for the success of our local environmental protection programs by actively participating in making our atmosphere pollution-free. And, although we can each help combat pollution in our immediate environments, we can do more by working to change legislation and policy on a larger scale.

Averting the onset of pollution in any area, be it in air or water or on land, could be the simplest preventive solution. If there are no pollutants, there will be no pollution. And yet, this is easier said than done. Certain bad habits are entrenched and industrial development as we know it seems to involve an expectation of pollution. Even the most simple preventive approaches are often quite complicated, expensive, and difficult for a small business to implement.

Still, there are small changes we can make on the individual level that make a difference, both in the short and long term.

Breathing is life. We know that we can survive without food for several weeks and without water for few days, but without oxygen, we will die in a matter of minutes.

A List of Things You Can Do

Every action or inaction of any person has an effect on the environment—be it good, neutral, or negative. By becoming aware and doing the right thing, we choose to be part of the solution. Here are some things you can do:

  • Stop smoking or don't throw your butts on the ground. Cigarette butts are not biodegradable and contain extremely toxic soluble chemicals. One butt thrown on the ground can remain for up to 25 years, leaking chemicals like arsenic, ammonia, acetone, benzene, cadmium, formaldehyde, lead, and toluene into the environment.
  • Drive an electric or hybrid car or at least one that uses unleaded gasoline.
  • Keep your car in good running condition to avoid emissions.
  • Share a ride or carpool.
  • Choose to walk or ride a bicycle whenever possible.
  • Never use open fires to dispose of waste, especially chemicals and plastic.
  • Adopt the 3 Rs of solid waste management: reduce, reuse, and recycle.
  • Use sustainable, reclaimed, or recycled building materials.
  • Start composting leaves and clippings from your yard and food scraps from your kitchen to reduce waste while improving your soil.
  • Use the power supplied abundantly and freely by wind and sun. Hang your laundry to dry to minimize your use of gas or electricity and open a window or put on a sweater rather than turning on the air conditioner or heater.
  • Buy local foods and goods. In this manner, the use of fuel for transporting goods can be minimized.
  • Look around you house or place of business for ways you could conserve water.
  • Use and buy products that are eco-friendly or made with biodegradable materials. Avoid plastic.
  • Always bring a bag when you shop.
  • Get rid of your lawn: Plant bee-friendly, drought-tolerant, native plants instead.
  • Plant more trees. They clean the air, provide oxygen, and beautify your surroundings.
  • Take care to properly dispose of your pet's waste.
  • Do not litter. Start an anti-litter campaign to educate your community.
  • If you own a business, make sure you have considered the environmental impact of your business practices. If you work for someone else, take the time to assess your company's environmental impact and try to implement positive change.
  • Say a big "NO" to pesticides and GMOs (genetically modified organisms).
  • Join an Earth Day celebration (every April 22nd) and consider making its tenets an everyday practice.

We have a moral and spiritual bond to the planet that God made the source of all living things that our own survival depends upon. Many urban dwellers have lost their spiritual bond to the earth when they lose a connection to the natural environment. They can lose their inner peace too.

How Can We Stop or Control Pollution?

The good news is that there is hope. The seeming insurmountability of the situation does not stop environmental protection advocates from pursuing their goals for a pollution-free earth. Kudos to Greenpeace and similar organizations all over the world as they bear the torch.

The daunting size of the problem shouldn't stop you, either. Everyone can help by educating themselves and doing what they can to adopt good and healthy practices, starting with the items on this list. It is also important that we share and help raise awareness about what we know.

By doing what you can, educating yourself, and sharing your awareness, you can make a significant impact.

NASA reports that in the next ten months, the earth will get hotter by four degrees. Glaciers are melting at rapid rates. Our climate is changing drastically and it's getting worse.

Rather than a problem to be solved, the world is a joyful mystery to be contemplated with gladness and praise.

— Pope Francis in Laudato

Excerpt from "Laudato Si" by Pope Francis

A Prayer for Our Earth

All-powerful God, you are present in the whole universe
and in the smallest of your creatures.
You embrace with your tenderness all that exists.
Pour out upon us the power of your love,
that we may protect life and beauty.
Fill us with peace, that we may live
as brothers and sisters, harming no one.
O God of the poor,
help us to rescue the abandoned and forgotten of this earth,
so precious in your eyes.
Bring healing to our lives,
that we may protect the world and not prey on it,
that we may sow beauty, not pollution and destruction.
Touch the hearts
of those who look only for gain
at the expense of the poor and the earth.
Teach us to discover the worth of each thing,
to be filled with awe and contemplation,
to recognize that we are profoundly united
with every creature
as we journey towards your infinite light.
We thank you for being with us each day.
Encourage us, we pray, in our struggle
for justice, love and peace.

The pollution of the planet is only an outside reflection of an inner psychic pollution: millions of unconscious individuals not taking responsibility for their inner space. [...] Are you polluting the world or cleaning up the mess? You are responsible for your inner space; nobody else is, just as you are responsible for the planet. As within, so without. If humans clear inner pollution, then they will also cease to create outer pollution.

— Eckhart Tolle

      Excellent and informative.

      Most of the calamities that occur is due to CO2 Excess and Water Vapor accumulation in the atmosphere. The simplest way to tackle this is to grow Care-free growth,regenerative CAM plants like Agave and Cactus(Opuntia) on a massive scale in vast waste lands especially in developing countries. CAM Plants act as Carbon Sink. Crassulacean acid metabolism, also known as CAM photosynthesis, is a carbon fixation pathway that evolved in some plants as an adaptation to arid conditions. In a plant using full CAM, the stomata in the leaves remain shut during the day to reduce evapotranspiration, but open at night to collect carbon dioxide (CO2).Biogaspower/biofuel/biochar can be obtained from these plants.

      Agave is a versatile plant well suited for millions of hectares of wastelands in India. Agave-derived Renewable Fuels, Products and Chemicals Biofuels Ethanol(1st and 2nd generations),Biobutanol,biomethanol,biojet fiel,green gasoline,biooil,biocrude,biodiesel,biocoal,biochar,H2,syngas,biogas,torrefied pellets and briquettes, drop-in fuels,pyrolysis oil,and biochar. Bioproducts Agave syrup(kosher),Powder inulin,healthy sweetners,far substitute(ice cream),bioplastics,cellulose,paper,acids,CO,CO2,biopolymers,pressed boards,geotextiles,fibres,phenols,adhesives,wax,antifreeze,film(food wrap),fertilisers,insulating foam and panes,gel,pectin,non-wooven material9disposable diapers),mouldings,concrete additive,food additives,composite materials,esters,substitute for asbestos, in fiberglass,hydrocarbons,petrochemical precursors, activated coal,secondary metabolites,detergent,glycols,furfurans,resins,polyurethanes,epoxy,aromatics,olefins,paints and lubricants. Green electricity Pellets and briquettes,syn-gas,biooil,biocoal,biogas,biochar,H2 cells,ammonia,and pyrolysis oil. Co2 Sequestering in the soil Biochar. Agave: Competitive Advantages 1. Uses marginal dry-land (41% of the Earth’s surface). 2. Most Efficient use of soil, water and light. 3. Massive production. Year-round harvesting. 4. Very high yields. Very low inputs. 5. Lowest cost of production among energy crops. 6. Not a commodity, so prices are not volatile. 7. Very versatile: biofuels, bioproducts, chemicals. 8. 100 M tonnes established in the 5 continents 9. Enhanced varieties are ready. Mexico is pioneer in utilising every part of Agave for commercial exploitation. Will India follow? Ours is an agrarian economy. Let us utilise our resources fully so that there will be more rural employment and climate change abatement by providing CAM plants.

      Thanks to the wonders of nature,we have Care-free growth,regenerative plants like Agave and Opuntia which can be grown in these waste lands for Biofuel and Biogas for Power generation. Mexico is leader in this. Agave(Americana),Sisal Agave is a multiple use plant which has 10% fermentable sugars and rich in cellulose. The fibre is used in rope making and also for weaving clothes in Philippines under the trade name DIP-DRY. In Brazil a paper factory runs on sisal as input. A Steroid HECOGENIN is extracted from this plant leaves. Since on putrification,it produces methane gas, it can be cut and used as input in biogas plants. Also in Kenya and Lesotho dried pieces of Agave are mixed with concrete since it has fibres which act as binding. Biofuel can be produced from Agave. Oxford University study on agave-to-ethanol: “The sustainability of large-scale biofuel production has recently been called into question in view of mounting concerns over the associated impact on land and water resources. As the most predominant biofuel today, ethanol produced from food crops such as corn in the US has been frequently criticised. Ethanol derived from cellulosic feedstocks is likely to overcome some of these drawbacks, but the production technology is yet to be commercialised. Sugarcane ethanol is the most efficient option in the short term, but its success in Brazil is difficult to replicate elsewhere. Agaves are attracting attention as potential ethanol feedstocks because of their many favourable characteristics such as high productivities and sugar content and their ability to grow in naturally water-limited environments. Here, we present the first life cycle energy and greenhouse gas (GHG) analysis for agave-derived ethanol. The results suggest that ethanol derived from agave is likely to be superior, or at least comparable, to that from corn, switchgrass and sugarcane in terms of energy and GHG balances, as well as in ethanol output and net GHG offset per unit land area. Our analysis highlights the promising opportunities for bioenergy production from agaves in arid or semi-arid regions with minimum pressure on food production and water resources. “[...] the emissions of agave-derived fuel are estimated to stand at around 35g of CO2 per megajoule from field-to-wheel, compared to the 85g/MJ emitted when making corn ethanol.” Dr Tan and his colleagues found this energy balance is five units to one. “This compares favourably to the highly efficient sugarcane, and to the less efficient corn as a source of biofuel. It also compares favourably to sugarcane-derived ethanol for its ability to offset greenhouse gas emissions, which we calculated at 7.5 tons of CO2e per hectare per year – taking into account the crop’s complete lifecycle” The main drawback for wider application of Biofuels is input. There was a big movement for biofuel from Jatropha in India but in reality not much has been achieved. Agave(Americana),Sisal Agave is a multiple use plant which has 10% fermentable sugars and rich in cellulose. The fibre is used in rope making and also for weaving clothes in Philippines under the trade name DIP-DRY. In Brazil a paper factory runs on sisal as input. A Steroid HECOGENIN is extracted from this plant leaves. Since on putrification,it produces methane gas, it can be cut and used as input in biogas plants. Also in Kenya and Lesotho dried pieces of Agave are mixed with concrete since it has fibres which act as binding. Here is an excellent analysis on Agave as a biofuel: Agave shows potential as biofuel feedstock, Checkbiotech, By Anna Austin, February 11, 2010: “Mounting interest in agave as a biofuel feedstock could jump-start the Mexican biofuels industry, according to agave expert Arturo Valez Jimenez. Agave thrives in Mexico and is traditionally used to produce liquors such as tequila. It has a rosette of thick fleshy leaves, each of which usually end in a sharp point with a spiny margin. Commonly mistaken for cacti, the agave plant is actually closely related to the lily and amaryllis families. The plants use water and soil more efficiently than any other plant or tree in the world, Arturo said. “This is a scientific fact—they don’t require watering or fertilizing and they can absorb carbon dioxide during the night,” he said. The plants annually produce up to 500 metric tons of biomass per hectare, he added. Agave fibers contain 65 percent to 78 percent cellulose, according to Jimenez. “With new technology, it is possible to breakdown over 90 percent of the cellulose and hemicellulose structures, which will increase ethanol and other liquid biofuels from lignocellulosic biomass drastically,” he said. “Mascoma is assessing such technology.”

      One simple idea to reduce pollution.

      It is to create local public/government transport system using animals like horses and camels instead of the conventional vehicles.

      In ancient times, civilizations used animals as means of transport.

      This is an eco friendly natural way.

      Animals as means of transport reduce accidents as well as the animals are conscious beings.

      Some people may object as this may lead to abuse of the animals.

      For that, the only solution I feel is to learn to treat them and use them with love and gentle care.

      I am trying to meet all leaders/business men to spread this idea. This idea may and hopefully will save the planet, people and all living beings.

      GMO is good for reducing polluting dammit! They use less fertilizer to make more food. GMO's are one of the greatest tools in our arsenal. Weed resistant and pest resistant plants mean less herbicide and insecticide and those are the real killer of the environment. Not to mention less tillage of soil means less use of diesel fuel. GMO's are wonderful if you say otherwise you're wrong.

      we apply these things in our life. do not be silly it is important

    • Bernard Barclay 24 months ago from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

      Making it a legal requirement, that new houses are built, with solar power, would also help, laws need to be created, that are designed to overcome the problems, but we also need to take into account, what people can afford.

      Part of the reason for the worlds deforestation is because those tree's are used in our building industry to create houses for our increasing population, which links the worlds polution problem, to the worlds over population problem.

      to overcome the worlds polution problem we also need to look at how to create a sustainable population

      there is no point in bringing billions of more people into the world if you can't feed them.

      Half the reason the governments turn their backs, on environment protection solutions, is that, they impact on job creation, and economic stimulisation solutions.

      We need to think, out of the square, how do we stimulate economic growth, reduce over population and achieve that, in a way that helps protect, the environment.

      Industrialised nations, have only a 2.5 percent population growth, the difference being, that people put off having family's, to futher there careers, the solution is to give everybody in the world, the chance to futher there career.

      Creating factory's, housing and cars, that use solar power would reduce the use of carbon base fuels but if we leave this to the choice of the people, it won't happen, we need to ligislate to create change.

      Stimulating investment in the ways, that I have suggested in my hubs, would allow for people, with the brains to guide the direction of investment, creating jobs for the unemployed world wide, overcoming poverty and leading the world to an environmetally friendly direction.

      Every problem has a solution, but my solution create's a profit for the investor, overcome's unemployment, and points in a direction, that could help, in creating a sutainable environment.

      It helped me a lot....!!!!!

    • Bernard Barclay 2 years ago from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia

      Well researched article but there is more, that we could do, saving together creating jobs would help in overcoming unemployment, stopping the poaching of wild animals in third world countrys, granted if we create inapproriate employment, we would increase the consumption of world resources.

      but if we created investment groups and guide them towards ideas on improving the worlds environment like creating more solar power and cars power by electricity.

      Granted we do not want to increase the deforestation of the rain forests but growing and havesting pine tree's could see the needs for forestation and business linked to improves the lives of people.

      At the end of the day we have to feed the people create the jobs and take care of our planet at the same time.

Other than this I have none at the moment because of some personal constraints. But allow me to encourage you to spearhead any anti-pollution awareness program that you may have in your mind. Or, you can join any such on-going program in your locality. You can be creative and you can certainly make a difference. Good luck!

      A very nice site . Pollution is a one of the major problem of the earth , and we can say this is a contribution from the author to reduce the pollution of earth .

      I didn't have a matter to post on my school's noticeboard , but now I have a lot of things to paste on,... and also it'll be a very small but still a contribution from my part to reduce pollution . Sir , I hope you'll write something more about these type of matters ,,.......

      ... thanking you...

      smoking, throwing industrial waste materials into the rivers, sending drinage water into the rivers and seas, cleaning buffaloes in rivers, using plaster of paris for lord ganesha idols, oil slicking in water. These are the main reasons for water pollution.

      pollution aat home can be curbed in many way-

      * segregating dry and wet waste

      * using books made of recycled paper

      * walk for short distances rather than driving

      * avoid using plastics

      * the best way to control pollution is recycling
