Global warming due to carbon emissions over the past one hundred years has caused the melting of permafrost in the Arctic. If this material is released into our atmosphere, this will tip the methane balance overboard and flood our cities with extensive amounts of carbon dioxide and methane (Jubb). If this warming is not stopped, toxic gases will be released and limit the lifespan of humanity.
purifications, this builds up algae which slowly leads to the water body becoming an Eutrophic lake. Humans of course tend to speed-up these sorts of problems. For more point source pollution there are the obvious actual pollution, of sewage, garbage, chemicals or otherwise that we empty off into lakes. However, even atmospheric pollution can lead to lakes

differences (McDonough 2002, p. 29). Excess detergent can contaminate waterways and alter aquatic ecosystems. Another example is lawn fertilization. Many people over-fertilize their lawns in order to improve the color, which can harm aquatic life when runoff occurs.
