    Environment or in other words our surrounding is one of our basic necessities which we require to sustain our lives. But in the past few years we human beings are torturing the nature and the environment at a very rapid pace. Also, India with the second largest population in the world is also contributing a great part to the environmental pollution and other environmental issues.

    Environmental issues prevailing in India:

    1.AIR POLLUTION: The constant emission of the harmful gases from the factories goes directly into the air and mix up causing contamination and thus gets into us through the air we breathe.

    2.WATER POLLUTION: Water gets contaminated by the untreated wastes which we dispose in to the water bodies without treatment, they toxify the water and thus affects the creatures living in there and thus it will create an imbalance in the eco-system. Also, we consume water and the creatures living in those water bodies and thus the contamination gets passed to us.

    SOIL POLLUTION: Soil also gets contaminated by the toxic wastes which gets disposed in the open land fills without getting treated.

    GLOBAL WARMING: With the increase in the amount of carbon dioxide and other harmful gases in the atmosphere we are facing global warming as a result of which the ice caps are melting also, we are experiencing hazards like the depletion of the ozone layer due to the emission of the harmful CFC from the coolers and refrigerators.
