On the other hand, if the current way the world's environmental problem is being handled continues, catastrophic consequences can follow for the future population.
Over the years, environmental pollution has become more of a problem for a number of reasons.
First, it does not take an expert to understand that pollution and environmental problems are more prominent in poor countries than that of rich countries.
Air, sound and water pollutions in countries like India and Bangladesh are far dangerous than that of developed countries like Australia, Canada and the UK.
So even if the industrialisation is imminent for the development of a country, it does not mean that we will have no way to minimise the pollution and environmental issues.
For instance, industrialisation does not cause as much deforestation as it is caused by human greed and lack of inspection and law in many countries.
The emergence of large factories gave rise to unprecedented amount of air and water pollution from coal burning and immense industrial chemical discharges.
Some of the major forms of pollution apart from air and water pollution include, light pollution from over-illumination, littering, noise pollution, radioactive contaminants from nuclear power generation, as well as plastic waste accumulation that adversely affect wildlife and human habitation.
Furthermore, the number of factories does not represent the amount of pollution it causes.
For instance, recent researches have made it clear that only a few garments factories in a country like Bangladesh cause far more damage to the air and water resources than hundreds of bigger industries do in the United States.
