Introduction

Editorial There are many problems taking place in the society today. Some of these problems can be solved easily, or can be extremely difficult to solve depending on how bad it is. Many people are ignorant and unaware of how they affect the community, both positively and negatively. They think that these problems are for the government to deal with, since they are in charge. One main problem that is affecting the community today is pollution. Although many people are working to stop pollution, there are others who don't even realize how harmful it is to the environment, themselves and other people and what it can do to them.

Pollution is affecting the Earth and our community in many ways that might not be noticed. First, the layer that surrounds the earth and protects the living organisms from the sun's dangerous rays will disappear more rapidly overtime. This will cause living things to be burned from all the heat that will enter the Earth. Second, pollution can kill or hurt animals because objects such as plastic wraps can be eaten by animals like birds that choke on it and may die. When air pollutants mix with the water droplets from rain, it forms acid rain. When acid rain falls down on the plants, the plants' surfaces become toxic and acidic. Humans and animals eat these plants, and if they are toxic then it will cause illnesses and sicknesses which will eventually lead to death. ...read more.

Conclusion

Pollution also affects the lungs of growing children and may worsen medical conditions of the elderly and of individuals with asthma and emphysema. Therefore, pollution doesn't directly kill us.

In conclusion, pollution affects the community negatively by burning up the ozone layer, contaminates our fresh air, and shortens the life of plants, animals and humans. People and the government in this community should work together and try to solve this problem and other community problems in order to make this society and planet a safe and good place to live. We must first try to solve this problem as a community then reinforce it in other societies all around the world. If this problem is not solved, there might not even be an Earth in the future to live on. ...read more.
