There are many types of pollution. Water, thermal, air, and even noise pollution. While all types of pollution need to be addressed, the most damaging types of pollution plaguing today's society is air and thermal pollution. Air pollution is the contamination of air that people breath in every day which causes many health problems that will only worsen over time. Thermal pollution is the process of taking water from a body of water, using it to cool things like machines, and then dumping the water back to its source, while it is still warmed.
