The Pollution-Sphere – A Creation of Men. An Essay
The pollution-sphere is growing thicker as humankind fails to achieve or postpone the environmental protection targets previously established. The inability of humans to acknowledge the urgency of mitigating pollution is making all the elements of environmental degradation a permanent matter and a part of the planet. This way, a new, human-related sphere arises besides the traditional ones: the pollution-sphere. Previous studies demonstrated how anthropic activities affect natural equilibrium and produce, and some scholars say, more waste and toxic emissions than the Earth can bear. Humans are present by their impact in all four Earth spheres: lithosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, and atmosphere.
