What do you think of when you hear the words catastrophic and apocalyptic? With that in mind, consider what it would be like to be forced to live in these horrid conditions. What if you knew that all of this is happening right now? Humans are slowly making this popular movie theme real using pollution. Ninjas have some competition now, because pollution is the new silent but deadly killer. Pollution negatively affects all aspects of life, and if we continue to add to this massive issue, there will be no stopping it. Imagine breathing in contaminated air filled with toxins. Now, think about the effects this poison would have on your body. A chain is only as strong as its weakest link, and this chain could be compared to an ecosystem. The effects would be devastating if something as small as plants died out in a small area. Imagine if a small fishing village on the coast wasn't able to fish. Not only would this hurt fishers, this would hurt the town as a whole. Pollution can cause all of these dire situations. The regulations on pollution need to be stricter.
