Pollution:Effect on World

"There's so much pollution in the air now that if it weren't for our lungs there'd be no place to put it all". -Robert Orben

True saying....Either it may be Air Pollution,Sound pollution or Water pollution every bit of it is hazardous.

According to a study, pollution is changing world's weather by creating large clouds and intense storms. Researchers say there is definitely a link between human activity and the changing weather conditions. Increasing urban pollution can be blamed for intensified electricity and lightning in storms over various cities.

China has not only its name in increasing population but also in increasing pollution. Chinese pollution is the deadliest in the world. A World Health Organization (WHO) report estimates that diseases caused by air pollution kill 656,000 Chinese citizens each year.

WHO's air guidelines warn that pregnant women, the sick, and young children are especially susceptible to suffering severe effects from high pollution levels.
