People have always polluted their surroundings, but until now pollution was not such a serious problem. With the development of big industrial cities which put huge amounts of pollutants into small areas, the problem has become more important.
On the one hand, technological developments make our life easier and more convinient. Ney technology has spread almost all over the world. It has become really indispensible in our life activity.
On the other hand, our plants and factories put their waste materials into water and atmosphere and pollute the environment. Automobiles and other new inventions make pollution steadily worse.
Vast forests are cut and burn in fire. Their disappearance upsets the oxygen balance. As a result some rare species of animals, birds, fish and plants disappear forever, a number of rivers and lakes dry up.

Government can pass the laws that would make enterprises take measures for reducing of pollution. This problem must be solved if we want to preserve life on our planet.
