Environmental pollution, the addition of any substance such as solid, liquid, fuel or any shape of energy such as heat, sound, or radioactivity to the environment at a price quicker than it can be dispersed, diluted, decomposed, recycled, or stored in some harmless form. The principal kinds of pollution, generally labeled with the aid of environment, are air pollution, water pollution, and land pollution. Modern society is also concerned about specific kinds of pollutants, such as noise pollution, moderate pollution, and plastic pollution. Pollution of all types can have bad consequences on the surroundings and natural world and regularly affects human fitness and well-being.
Climate change can be defined as the change in the weather patterns of earth that lasts for few decades and sometimes may be for million years. Climate change is the trending and threatening issue of our time and if it is not addressed with immediate attention, then our planet earth should be ready to face severe catastrophic impacts in the future. Global warming is the defined as gradual rise in the average temperature of the Earth's atmosphere due to change in the climate. Primary reasons for the global warming are due to industrialization and urbanization especially CO2 emissions. Major consequences due to climate change and global warming are Sea Level Rise, Ocean warming, Glacial Retreat, Shrinking of Ice Sheets, Solar Irradiance, Depletion of Ozone Layer, Natural disasters and Droughts and Heat Waves.

Pollution control, in environmental engineering, any of a variety of means employed to limit damage done to the environment by the discharge of harmful substances and energies. Specific means of pollution control might include refuse disposal systems such as sanitary landfills, emission control systems for automobiles, sedimentation tanks in sewerage systems, the electrostatic precipitation of impurities from industrial gas, or the practice of recycling. For full treatment of major areas of pollution control, see air pollution control, wastewater treatment, solid-waste management, and hazardous-waste management.
Next to the conservation of species from the loss of biological diversity, the control of pollution is the conservation problem of greatest magnitude; it might even be argued that pollution control is more urgent and important. Ultimately, the control of pollution involves a number of social decisions: 1) not to allow the escape into the environment of substances or forms of energy that are harmful to life, 2) to contain and recycle those substances that could be harmful if released into the environment in excessive quantities, and 3) not to release into the environment substances that persist and are toxic to living things. The knowledge and technology needed to put these decisions to work are now available. Pollution control does not mean an abandonment of existing productive human activities but their reordering so as to guarantee that their side effects do not outweigh their advantages.
Harmful gases like nitrogen oxides and sulfur oxides are released into the atmosphere during the burning of fossil fuels. When it rains, the water droplets combine with these air pollutants becomes acidic and then falls on the ground in the form of acid rain. Acid rain can cause great damage to human, animals, and crops.
Plastic is a polymeric material—that is, a material whose molecules are very large, often resembling long chains made up of a seemingly endless series of interconnected links. Natural polymers such as rubber and silk exist in abundance, but nature’s “plastics” have not been implicated in environmental pollution, because they do not persist in the environment. Today, however, the average consumer comes into daily contact with all kinds of plastic materials that have been developed specifically to defeat natural decay processes—materials derived mainly from petroleum that can be molded, cast, spun, or applied as a coating. Since synthetic plastics are largely no biodegradable, they tend to persist in natural environments. Moreover, many lightweight single-use plastic products and packaging materials, which account for approximately 50 percent of all plastics produced, are not deposited in containers for subsequent removal to landfills, recycling centers, or incinerators. Instead, they are improperly disposed of at or near the location where they end their usefulness to the consumer. Dropped on the ground, thrown out of a car window, heaped onto an already full rubbish bin, or inadvertently carried off by a gust of wind, they immediately begin to pollute the environment. Indeed, landscapes littered by plastic packaging have become common in many parts of the world. (Illegal dumping of plastic and overflowing of containment structures also play a role.) Studies from around the world have not shown any particular country or demographic group to be most responsible, though population centers generate the most litter. The causes and effects of plastic pollution are truly worldwide.
Any form of pollution that can trace its immediate source to industrial practices is known as industrial pollution. Most of the pollution on the planet can be traced back to industries of some kind. In fact, the issue of industrial pollution has taken on grave importance for agencies trying to fight against environmental degradation. Countries facing sudden and rapid growth of such industries are finding it to be a serious problem which has to be brought under control immediately.
Industrial pollution takes on many faces. It contaminates many sources of drinking water, releases unwanted toxins into the air and reduces the quality of soil all over the world. Major environmental disasters have been caused due to industrial mishaps, which have yet to be brought under control. Below are a few of the causes of industrial pollution that have resulted in environmental degradation.
Causes of Industrial Pollution
- Lack of Policies to Control Pollution
- Unplanned Industrial Growth
- Use of Outdated Technologies
- Presence of a Large Number of Small Scale Industries
- Inefficient Waste Disposal
- Leaching of Resources From Our Natural World
Effects of Industrial Pollution on Our Environment
- Water Pollution
- Soil Pollution
- Air Pollution
- Wildlife Extinction
- Global Warming
The increase in the human population has led to resource depletion, pollution, and climate change. Previously the climate was not considered to be affected by the land surface or the organisms present on earth. It has now been accepted that land surface plays a major role in determination of the climate. Land surfaces altered by anthropogenic activities have caused changes in land surface processes and micrometeorological parameters. Vegetation is a major factor in climate regulation and maintenance. This chapter, aims at linking complex land surface processes with anthropogenic impacts (pollution, land use change, deforestation), and their impact on the climate as well as the role of vegetation in the maintenance of climatic variables. Pollution is another devastating result of human interference, and plants have the potential to remediate polluted sites.
Twenty-first century air pollution control is concerned with more than just the release to atmosphere of visible pollutants such as smoke, fume and poisonous or noxious particulate matter. We may also have to restrict or even prevent releases of environmental pollutants such as greenhouse gases, those which produce ground level ozone, and those which destroy high-level atmospheric ozone.
These discharges might come from the flues of fired heaters or incinerators, and they may be the gaseous by-products of reactions, or contaminated air from ventilation or wastewater aeration.
Cyclones can be used to remove dust matter from gas streams.
Scrubbers are commonly used to remove both the traditional and novel classes of air pollutants from gaseous releases, including particulate matter. They may use water as scrubbing liquid, or may use added reagents to react with pollutants to form stable compounds.
