Finally, pollution is a global issue and proper law and enforcement of laws can reduce it to a great extent.
We cannot stop the natural causes of pollution but the greater percentages of environmental pollutions are caused by the human actions.
The emergence of large factories gave rise to unprecedented amount of air and water pollution from coal burning and immense industrial chemical discharges.
Some of the major forms of pollution apart from air and water pollution include, light pollution from over-illumination, littering, noise pollution, radioactive contaminants from nuclear power generation, as well as plastic waste accumulation that adversely affect wildlife and human habitation.
So even if the industrialisation is imminent for the development of a country, it does not mean that we will have no way to minimise the pollution and environmental issues.
For instance, industrialisation does not cause as much deforestation as it is caused by human greed and lack of inspection and law in many countries.Second, economic development does not mean that a country will have industries and factories all over the country.Proper planning and inspection from the government can ensure the minimal emission of gas and other toxic elements into the water and air.Furthermore, the number of factories does not represent the amount of pollution it causes.For instance, recent researches have made it clear that only a few garments factories in a country like Bangladesh cause far more damage to the air and water resources than hundreds of bigger industries do in the United States."Also, 40% of the world's deaths are being attributed to environmental factors"(Segelken).With such a number of people dying a year due to air pollution one can see how much the environmental pollution is affecting us. Agricultural water pollution is becoming a major issue these days, not only in developed regions such as Europe but also in many other developing countries as well. Another concern with agricultural pollution is the over application of manure at factory farms that are polluting our lakes and river; fish and wildlife, and threatening public health."Due to the great increase in the world's population, which is at 6.1 billion, energy use, and the number of vehicles on roads make air pollution a greater threat than ever"(Pollution, Environmental).Because of this, "air pollution kills eight thousand people a year due to respiratory related problems"(Air Pollution Kills).We should educate people, encourage them and enforce strict laws to save our environment while development of a country has nothing to do with the rampant pollution we can see nowadays in many cities.In conclusion, I would agree that development and industrialisation affect the environment negatively to some extent but this is not the prime factor in polluting our environment.
