Environment pollution

One of the greatest problems of the contemporary world is the pollution of the environment. Cars and factories emit gases which contaminate the atmosphere. It leads to depletion of the ozone layer, acid rain and global warming. Water is also heavily polluted because of tanker leaks, oil spills and the dumping of sewage directly into rivers and seas. Deforestation and the use of fertilizers cause soil erosion, the disruption of ecological balance and the extinction of endangered species. Nuclear fuel is also very dangerous to the environment as its radiation could destroy the ecosystem.

Environment protection

People have destroyed the environment to such an extent that it’s high time they thought more about its protection. They should be made more sensitive ­to ­ecological problems and their environmental awareness should be much higher. Every political party ­should include in their programme some pro-ecological postulates e.g. water and energy conservation, protection of natural recourses and traffic reduction. ­It would be great if more and more national parks were created. Average citizens should buy only environmentally friendly products and always recycle bottles, ­paper and plastic.
