edit·history·watch·refresh Stock post message.svg To-do list for Pollution:

Here are some tasks awaiting attention:
  • Expand : *Expand lead.
    • Look at using summary style.
    • Biological background should precede 'prehistory'. Anologues of pollution in other species are discussed in the chapter on pollution in Townsend, Begon and Harper's Essentials of Ecology, for example. For a very early case, consider the formation of oxygen in the ocean and atmosphere, which James Walker (1986) describes as "the most severe pollution episode in the history of the earth".
Priority 1 (top)

Quantification[edit]

There seems to be a lot of information qualifying pollution in this article without the accompanying statistics or estimates of local and global production and accumilation of specific pollutants. I came to this page in search of a metric or statistic for annual by-country production of pollutants, or a survey of the accumilation per-pollutant. These would be good statistics to include.

In the event these statistics do not exist compiled, what is the policy on extrapolating information from other wikipedia articles to include on an article? This article notes that pollution increased dramatically in response to smelting and refining activities, and though I might not have easy access to all the pollution information, I can find or extrapolate information for global and per country ore refining and metal recycling practices, their energy use, carbon footprint, what pollutants they emit and in what quantity. It would be nice to get the big picture in this article which would quantify the activities of man in terms of pollution instead of just 'pollution: history and molecules' -RR — Preceding unsigned comment added by RotogenRay (talkcontribs) 18:48, 5 May 2014 (UTC)

I suggest we add the following info about pollution either in the introduction, or in 7.1

Pollution is the largest cause of of death in developing countries. [1]Exposures to polluted soil, water and air (both indoor and outdoor) killed 9 million people in 2012. 8.4 million of them in low- and middle-income countries. Worldwide, pollution kills one in seven people. [2]

Semi-protected edit request/Most polluted places in the developing world[edit]

Given that Russia, India and Ukraine are industrialized countries and that the information dates from the past, the following sentence should be changed from: In the 2007 issues the ten top nominees, already industrialized countries excluded, are located in Azerbaijan, China, India, Peru, Russia, Ukraine and Zambia. to: In the 2007 issues the ten top nominees, already industrialized countries excluded, were located in Azerbaijan, China, Peru and Zambia. Furthermore, I don't see the rationale for excluding industrialized countries, so they should be included in that enumeration, too. 167.88.21.118 (talk) 05:11, 9 March 2016 (UTC)

123.201.231.60 (talk) 14:11, 25 October 2016 (UTC) • Menace of pollution • FROM THE NEWSPAPER — PUBLISHED Feb 14, 2014 07:56am • WHATSAPP • 0 COMMENTS • EMAIL • PRINT • OUR environment is in danger and so is life and its quality. Climatic conditions are deteriorating day by day. The duration of winter season has also reduced to a few weeks only. Multiple factors have contributed to this global change. • The contemporary issue that needs to be raised by Pakistan at the international forum is India’s rapidly-escalating emission of GHG, which, in the coming decade, is expected to rise from three trillion cubic feet, as of 2010, to four trillion cubic feet by 2025. • India’s malevolent strategy of extensive utilisation of coal-powered electricity has adversely affected Pakistan. It is relatively cheaper and hence India would never replace it with green technology. • Its domino effect has not only destroyed the climate of Pakistan but has also caused epidemic outbreak of emphysema, lung cancer, asthma and heart attacks. • Serious notice must be taken immediately of this neglected issue, with some vigilant steps to halt this scheme by India against us. • Muneeza Butt
