Man has developed activities and has manipulated life so that uncomfortable levels of pollution have become an undeniable aspect of our time. This has made pollution of our environment and its consequences a contemporary subject of debate. Research and policies in Western societies are gradually defining pathways to deal with pollution. However, other societies do face the consequences of Western-born pollution and are more helplessly confronted to life-threatening matters every day.
Pollution therefore can be defined as a mostly man-made event, or at least one in which mankind had and still has a substantial share. We are the so-called polluting agents, rather than the chemical substances that affect life, climate, weather and environment. We are the biological agents that cause the spread of many unwanted and earth-unfriendly elements.
