Pollution pictures illustrate all too well just how degraded our environment has become. Pollution may look beautiful but it is certainly not glamorous. We have written a lot about environmental pollution, its causes and effects. Please feel free to browse our Environment section to learn more about pollution issues.

Here we present some of the pollution pictures which have already been published elsewhere on this website. No matter where we live, we can always encounter some unpleasant polluted locations that we would like to scream about to everyone willing to listen ...
