Three are three types of major pollution
- air pollution caused by factories or cars
- water pollution caused by waste of factories going into streams.
- soil pollution caused by burying the wastes
40% of people die of pollution every year. Daveid Pimentel, a professor of agricultural sector and a ecologist did a research on the pollution. Click on the link and study the research

the main cause of pollution is MAN. We are essentially the most dangerous animal on the planet. Which is pretty bad when you think about the fact that God made us the stewards of the earth and all that dwell therein. Notice that you don't see any other animals riding around in petroleum burning, carbon-dioxide spewing vehicles,
throwing non-biodegradable trash all along their path. And where do these vehicles and containers come from??? Why they are manufactured in large factories which emit tons of waste and pollution into our rivers, streams and atmosphere daily. Pollution is a vicious circle, but it all ultimately starts with man.

The major cause for pollution is the burning of fossil fuels because when the carbon from fossil fuels and trees are released into the atmosphere it raises the carbon dioxide level which can contribute to global warming.
we humans have interfered with the cycles of matter numerous number of times two major impact that we have, on rasing the carbon dioxide level are:
burning of fossil fuels and deforestation.

WELL I THINK MAN SHOULD CHANGE 4 NOT POLLUTING THE AIR ...The air is shared among all living things. When it is polluted by a factory in Asia, a fire in Australia, a dust storm in Africa, or car emissions in North America, the sharing continues despite the fact that these chemicals and particles have detrimental effects.
Scientists have determined many of the harmful local effects of air pollution. We know, for instance, that air pollution can negatively impact human health and cause coughs, burning eyes, breathing problems, and even death. We know that atmospheric haze or smog reduces visibility and that acid rain from chemical emissions damages property, pollutes water resources, and can harm forests, wildlife, and agriculture.
But what are the regional and global impacts of air pollution? Through large scientific field campaigns such as MILAGRO, scientists are beginning to track its movement from cities into regional and global environments. Their goal is to determine air pollution’s movement and impact on climate and atmospheric composition locally, regionally, and globally.
