Man is slowly milking the planet dry not just by using its resources but damaging it the global warming and increasing pollution spewing contaminants and garbage into the sea, atmosphere and of course land.re are 15 shocking images of pollution to show how we are damaging the planet.
When sea animals get stuck in trash
Pollution on land may be at deplorable levels and it is now occurring in the sea too as one can see how this whale’s tail is stuck in trash or discarded netting that has attracted a lot of junk. These divers are most probably trying to free the tail.
The height of pollution that China won’t want you to see
China may show immaculate clean cities but in domestic and rural areas it is another story altogether as you can see from this filthy canal with garbage floating by.
The crimes of humanity
When humanity isn’t meant even for man, how can we extend it for animals in the sea? This poor seal seems to have wires twisted around its neck so tightly it cuts into its flesh. Most probably the garbage left over by fishermen.
Yamuna River Pollution
There is a huge cry of concern about the pollution of the Yamuna River in India where contaminants and sewage are slowly killing all aquatic life such as fish washed up every day.
This is what a tsunami does to both man and animals where it swallows up everything in its path. This kitten was rescued in the aftermath of the deadly tsunami that hit Thailand and Southeast Asia in December 2011.
How many more heart rending images like this will the world look at till it wakes up to the effects of global warming. People need to practice reducing their carbon footprints at home, not in large seminars or worldwide agreements on paper.
Pollution in Philippines
Truly sad pictures like this exist across the net showing how hundreds of Philippine children end up negotiating flooded or polluted canals to scavenge recyclable materials just to chalk out a living.
Polluted yellow river Mongolia
The Yellow river in Mongolia is so badly contaminated that locals cannot even breathe the foul area around it because of the toxic fumes and the polluted atmosphere. Shows how humans have little regard for this planet.
San Joaquin Valley oilfields
This is one more picture showing the rampant commercialization and exploitation of earth’s resources where oil is one of the biggest factors that can even create wars and move governments.
In Situ Burning
In situ burning refers to the process of controlling an oil spill on the sea by burning so that the oil cant spread and is used up, but imagine what happens to the aquatic life beneath the oil spill and the birds that get trapped by it.
Polluted Brick Kilns, Bangladesh
Brick Kilns loom over the horizon behind garbage dumps with garbage scattered around where 3500 tons of garbage is produced in Dhaka alone. Most of the garbage is not collected.
Results of oil mining
This is what happens when man exploits the resources of the planet. The image shows the results of mining of oil sands in the province of Alberta in Canada. When will man ever learn despite of such shocking images of earth pollution.
This goes to show that garbage from the land is now filling our seas and such pieces of plastic like these have the potential to kill seal life by rendering them immobile and as such it becomes difficult to survive.
This makes one wonder is man really intelligent by slowly and surely strangling the planet he lives upon. Garbage like plastic was the worst thing to be invented by man and this image of over population is any better.
Tire garbage dump in the sea
One of the worst shocking images of pollution, this isn’t just a garbage dump in the ocean; this is how radioactive waste material is dumped in such sites not very deep in the ocean but just off coastal areas. This is the reality of mankind because besides these there are thousands of shocking images of pollution which is increasing day by day.
