Who usually Creates Pollution?
Well, the answer to that could only be humans. Believe it or not, the natural world would be fine without us. Tanya's favorite poem is by Sara Teasdale, "There will Come Soft Rains," which comments on this subject:
There will come soft rains and the smell of the ground,
And swallows circling with their shimmering sound;
And frogs in the pools singing at night,
And wild plum-trees in tremulous white;
Robins will wear their feathery fire
Whistling their whims on a low fence-wire;
And not one will know of the war, not one
Will care at last when it done.
Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree
If mankind perished utterly;
And Spring herself, when she woke at dawn,
Would scarcely know that we were gone.
~ Sara Teasdale
Is water pollution socially acceptable?
Is water pollution socially acceptable in our society? When you see a person drop a cigarette butt on the ground, do you care? In some ways people littering or leaving a soda bottle by the river does not bother us, because we know we have done it before.
However, it shouldn't be! We should change our attitudes towards polluting our environment, and since we are the next generation, our society will eventually realize that littering is not acceptable at all.
How many types of water pollution are there in Chico?
