There is no effective environmental management without the adequate pollution control. In this sense, term pollution control refers to methods and measures that aim to control the introduction of various pollutants into the given environment in order to prevent its contamination and harmful consequences to all living species in the nearby area.
Pollution control means control of emissions and effluents into air, water or soil. Pollution control is extremely important because without it a different waste from various human activities (most notably industry) would enter environment, degrading it into the process.
Term pollution control is also very closely related to term „waste minimization“. In fact, minimizing waste from industrial and other facilities means lot easier pollution control.
Despite the efforts from many countries of the world, pollution levels continue to grow in much of the world, mostly because of our continuous dependence on fossil fuels. What this means is that the global pollution control is still inadequate and needs to upgrade.
The best way to upgrade global pollution control would be to create an independent international body that would enforce strict pollution control standards for all countries of the world. However, before forming this international pollution control body each country should first ensure adequate pollution control mechanisms at domestic level.
The adequate pollution control is really in the interest of each and every one of us because a life without pollution means healthy life and is one of the main prerequisites for our future wellbeing.
One of the biggest problems is the fact that human population is rapidly expanding, and more people almost always means more waste and more pollution.
The world, despite living in the 21st century still needs to develop global environmental conscience and start caring more for our environment, and mother Earth in general.
The business as usual scenario will see pollution running out of control, putting in jeopardy the wellbeing of our future generations.
We must act, instead of pretending like there is nothing going on. Pollution is major issue, and ignorance is certainly not the solution for it. It never was, and it never will be.
