What is environment
• Environment means anything that surround us. It can be living (biotic) or non-
living (abiotic) things. It includes physical, chemical and other natural forces.
Living things live in their environment.They constantly interact with it and
adapt themselves to conditions in their environment. In the environment
there are different interactions between animals, plants, soil, water, and other
living and non-living things.
• Since everything is part of the environment of something else, the
word environment is used to talk about many things. People in different fields
of knowledge use the word environment differently. Electromagnetic
environment is radio waves and other electromagnetic
radiation and magnetic fields.The environment of galaxy refers to conditions
of interstellar medium.
How we are polluting environment

• Look at any ecosystem and there could be multiple forms of contamination—
streams full of toxic chemicals from industrial processes, rivers overloaded
with nutrients from farms, trash blowing away from landfills, city skies
covered in smog. Even landscapes that appear pristine can experience the
effects of pollution sources located hundreds or thousands of miles away.
• Pollution may muddy landscapes, poison soils and waterways, or kill plants
and animals. Humans are also regularly harmed by pollution. Long-term
exposure to air pollution, for example, can lead to chronic respiratory disease,
lung cancer and other diseases.Toxic chemicals that accumulate in top
predators can make some species unsafe to eat. More than one billion people
lack access to clean water and 2.4 billion don’t have adequate sanitation,
putting them at risk of contracting deadly diseases.
