Pollution

Parent Category: Environmental Issues
Pollution is the process of giving out contaminants such as smoke and carbon dioxide, and too much of a certain product such as light, heat and sound that both cause harm to the environment.
The left overs left behind in the soil as irrigated water for  farming evaporates, which makes the soil water have a higher  osmotic content for the plants. A higher concentration of solutes  means there is a lower amount of water. Therefore, more water will  run/diffuse out of the plants cells...
I can only speculate but I wouldn't imagine global warming would  have had much of an impact on global shark populations to date.  Water takes a lot of energy to heat up and changes to global  oceanic temperatures are less noticable than atmospheric  temperatures. Sharks are cold-blooded so...

Earth is described as having three atmospheres. The first  atmosphere, captured from the solar nebula, was composed of light  (atmophile) elements from the solar nebula, mostly hydrogen and  helium. A combination of the solar wind and Earth's heat would have  driven off this atmosphere. The...
It is 72% of our atmosphere. However it also can cause ground level  ozone and smog. It also can be bad in water systems if there is an  excess. Without it though nothing could live. Plants need it to  survive.
Methane 16% -- Carbon Dioxide (Forestry and Industrial process) 76%  -- Nitrous Oxide 6% -- F-Gases 2%
Modern homes are better sealed against the elements, and lack of air circulation from outdoors means that more air pollutants stay inside as they are generated.

After the Exxon Valdez oil spill, Exxon should have paid for all  the cleanup and also provided preventative measures!
Thermal pollution is usually associated with increases of water temperatures in a stream, lake, or ocean due to the discharge of heated water from industrial processes, such as the generation of electricity. Increases in ambient water temperature also occur in streams where shading vegetation along...

Astronomical light pollution started as street and road lighting  became widespread from the early 20th century. It was bad enough by  the 1980's for the dark sky movement to gather momentum. Local  light pollution, for instance from obtrusive security lights, is a  more recent problem, perhaps...
Yes, it is. Both the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers in Iraq have many  pollutants added by industry and the populace. This includes  sewage, chemical releases, and agricultural runoff.

There are many ways to make a model of land pollution for a school  science exhibition. One idea is to show a diorama of land and lake  area clean next to a diorama of the same scene with sludge in the  water.
There are many natural resources that are extremely important to  human activity, but without water human activity could not exist.  Therefore, water is vital.
Ozone layer protects our planet Earth from the harmful radiations  that comes from the sun. The ozone layer was discovered in 1913 by  the French physicists Charles Fabry and Henri Buisson. Ozone layer  is a deep layer in earth's atmosphere that contain ozone which is a  naturally occurring...

Well, when burning hydrocarbons in complete combustion, the products are Water (H2O) + Carbon Dioxide (CO2). The only potentially dangerous product of complete combustion of hydrocarbons is CO2 in large amounts which some people believe presents a danger of global warming. However, if you are...
  == Answer ==   Usually, it lowers it as CO2 is converted to HCO2 and SO4 is converted to H2SO4 (carbon dioxide to carbonic acid and sulfate to sulfuric acid). Nitric acids can also form from nitric oxide. That's the general composition of acid rain. (low pH = more acid) 
It leaches calcium, potassium, and other valuable nutrients from the soil.
Factories effect the evnviroment because of the smoke that goes out of the tubes on top of the factories. It gets into the air and sometimes its hard for you to breathe. The toxic waste from factory processes is well known for polluting the environment.
Littering causes disease because it creates breeding grounds for  germs. When germs come into contact with food or hands, they cause  ill health. Besides, when litter is washed down to water sources,  it pollutes water sources making it unfit for human consumption.
  == Answer ==   Improperly installed oil filter. Too tight, too loose, UN-lubricated gasket, or old gasket left on after removal. Also a drain plug loose or cross threaded.   The shop would be responsible if you can prove it is their fault.   == Answer ==     Sometimes even when...

Some plastic is non-biodegradable, in the sense that it takes longer than several lifetimes for the plastic to disintegrate. A glass bottle is essentially non-biodegradable.
The additional lights from street lamps and buildings gets sent  into the sky which in turn gets scattered by our atmosphere, and  this hinders very faint galaxies, nebula, planets and stars to be  seen.
people throw rubbish and litter in the sea and oil and waste from the factories.
Of the fossil fuels, natural gas emits less carbon dioxide than oil (though the gas itself, methane, is a powerful greenhouse gas and there are serious leakage problems with its use). Any of the renewable sources of energy are better than oil. Solar, geothermal, wind, hydro etc, all have zero...

  == Answer ==   On the right side of the bike (if you were sitting on it) there is a cover that is not cover by the plastics, this is the clutch cover. On the clutch cover, there is a dip stick to check the oil level, this is where the oli goes.
Partly. It is stated that sky lanterns are fully biodegradable.

Silt is a major problem. Run-off (oil and fertilizer) from roads and farms is another. Unregulated or illegal waste from factories is another.
