The Most Polluted Country on Earth

In the words of Babu Rajan, at Tata Consultancy Services, a subsidiary of Tata Group which is the largest manufacturing company in India (the 3rd most polluted country in the world after Bangladesh and Pakistan), “destruction is a man's will, nevertheless prevention is also a man's will. It’s a man's choice to choose between destruction and prevention”.



We all can acknowledge that pollution of all types is unacceptable and is killing us slowly yet commercial air polluting has become almost normalized all over the world. Industrialization in Bangladesh, China, USA, Russia, India, and Pakistan generate massive greenhouse gas emissions from manufacturing companies to vehicle exhausts making up the most common form of pollution.

Acid rains caused by air pollution accounts for the worldwide reduction of soil nutrition, loss of aquatic life, increase in heavy metal content in soil and water and ultimately, adversely impacting human health. The aviation industry, which directly patronizes the air space has grown over the last 20 years, releasing enormous amounts of fumes from diesel engines into the atmosphere and causing a plethora of health-related problems across borders.

As we continue to cut down trees without replacement and hinder the air cleaning process of photosynthesis, we expose our environment to degradation of all types which, has now opened the flood gates to global warming and flooding in our nations. Scientists have concluded that deforestation creates destruction of flora and fauna, forcing a disruption of our Earth’s ecosystem.


Studies have shown that the known pollutants in the air (carbon monoxide, lead, nitrogen oxides and Sulfur Dioxide) are now found in the respiratory organs of the unborn, are one of the major causes of higher infant mortality, lower birth weight, impaired lung development and increased later respiratory morbidity. It is without debate that all nations need to cut back on emissions on all forms of greenhouse gas emissions and promote active research on alternatives.


The recent global pandemic should be a wake-up call for all Earthly nations as we collectively continue to experience the crushing and devastating blow an airborne disease dealt the human race. It is one Earth. It is our habitat. World leaders may redraw maps, covet lands, grab power, suppress people, incite war, push corruption – none of these changes the course the human race is on. It is hence, in our own best interest to not only choose prevention, but also, preservation since, we are already barreling towards very precarious tipping points which contribute to an already deteriorating, livable state of our world.

It is important to consider the negative impacts of our daily activities. Cumulatively, the effects of some waste elements contribute to destruction of some natural resources.

You are so right. It is exactly that cumulative effect that builds and builds to breakpoints...

Commercial Air Pollution is indeed creating more havoc in our world today, Governments, Industries and Individuals must collectively take full responsibility in ensuring practical and sustainable solutions are implemented to save our planet 🌎 now. Can a small change make a big difference? YES!!! "The butterfly effect concept " A small change can still deliver those big results. It can help us create a huge, wonderful transformation in saving our planet 🌎. By changing as little as one small daily habit, we can introduce more positive and healthy patterns into our quest to combat Commercial Air Pollution. We must encourage the use of alternative sources of energies such as Solar, Wind and Geothermal to replace Fossil Fuels. •Plant more trees…

The world today is filled with increasing atmospheric elements all due to human activities. This unprecedented harmful effect on the globe negatively affects nature. All must come on board to preserve nature. Pollution is a global problem. Climate change has no boundaries and the impact of human activities has resulted in increasing global warming affecting both macro and microorganisms. The harmful material produced called pollutants caused damage to the quality of air, water, and land. Until such a time nature is preserved we will continually battle the effects of pollution on the earth. A sustainable approach to development is key to environmental maintenance

You hit the nail on the head there Collins - a sustainable approach to development is key to environmental maintenance. And we need decisive actions and big steps forward. This is a global collective effort. None of us have the luxury of waiting... now is the crucial time

What can we do as collective individuals to save this planet, global warming is here with us.

In Ghana we used to experience raining season in the months of June, July and August but that has changed drastically which has affected our agriculture productivities, this should be a wake up call for all of us. That's why support the Government of Ghana's ( Green Ghana Policy) where a day is set to plant over 25 millions trees yearly. It's time to come together and fight save the planet for our future generations.
