    It was mentioned earlier that with the increase in out population, clean water has become a problem. Our rivers have been polluted by all sorts of waste. There is rubbish from our homes, dangerous pesticides from our farms, and deadly chemicals from our factories.
    In the days when the pollution was smaller, people’s waste could be useful. I could be turned slowly into nitrates and phosphates by the natural action of bacteria and air, and these two substances, are needed by plants and fish. But as the pollution increased, waste becomes so much and so overwhelming that natural process could not longer keep the water clean. Many fish have been killed by water pollution.
    There are many kinds of pollution. They can be grouped into several major classifications, of which we mentioned here; water pollution and radiator pollution.
    Air pollution is caused by car engines and by big factories with large chimneys through which dirty air escapes.
    Land pollution can be caused by waste or rubbish such as paper, bottles, plastic, aluminium, scraps, junk, etc. Because of our carelessness and laziness our surroundings are very dirty they are filled with household as well as factory waste. Some waste can be broken down by natural organisms such as bacteria. Rubbish like this called organic waste. On the other hand, rubbish which cannot be broken down by natural organisms is called inorganic waste. This is more difficult to dispose of and it makes the surroundings very unpleasant to look at.
    Noise pollution can be caused by several things, loud music through loudspeakers, the noise of motorized vehicles such as trucks, buses, motorcycles, and also aircraft. Loud noise is annoying and cause nervous strain.
