Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 Chemical Pollution Well known causes of Chemicalpollutions are from production factories that produce oils and paintsand other toxic products. Oil tanks andfactories are also a big part of chemicalpollution. These factories and tanksusually dump their toxic wastes into bodiesof waters and rivers. Chemical factories, however, are notthe only causes of chemicalpollution. Agricultural methods such as using pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers contribute a great dealto the chemical pollution in the worldtoday. Dumping the toxic chemicals in these different areas (usually water)causes for species to die and in extreme cases become extinct. Eventhough humans do not live in any of these polluted environments, they can still be dangerously affected. Speciesin the toxic environment (pesticide affected environment) might die or contain molecules of chlorinated hydrocarbons which predators consume,which eventually will end up with humans (food chain); making them ill. In order to lessen the amount ofchemical pollution or eliminate it, it is best to dump oils, paints and medicines in enviornmental offices instead of down the drain. If one lives near water, it is best to plant many trees in order to catch toxic waste from a home when it rains.An alternative for pesticides and fertalizers would be composting or using organic manure. It is best to limit the amount of use of a chemicalproduct in order to pollute less. Pros and Cons to Chemical Pollution:PROS: people get together to make the world cleaner.CONS: animals and plants die, humansand other organism get ill, habitats are destroyed, possibleextinction of a species. 1) New Hampshire (most polluted) 2) Haverford Pennsylvania 22) Marina, California
