Our moment is nitrogen pollution. Nitrogen pollution

Our environment is affected by our daily actions which affects the earth. The earth is filled with many things including land, air and water, And because of our daily actions here are some of the problems we face on earth deforestation, nuclear waste, acid rain, global warming and overpopulation. One big world problem at the moment is nitrogen pollution. Nitrogen pollution has been one of America’s largest world widespread problems for centuries. It has its pros and cons because nitrogen is what we humans breathe. In fact, it makes up 78 percent of the air we breathe, and it makes up about 3 percent of our body, but because of its over abundance it has its major effects on humans and animals. Nitrogen is an essential for plant and animal growth and nourishment for many things but the overabundance of certain nutrients in water can cause a number of adverse health and ecological effects not only on humans but animal and plant life too. Nitrogen can come in many forms, for example in the forms of nitrate, nitrite, or ammonium, but because of its over abundance spread nitrogen is very needed for plant growth.n                   How it’s affecting us at the moment?Nitrogen pollution does not affect only the quality of the air we breathe, but also the land and the water we drink. Nitrogen is one of the most abundant element in the air and is essential to plant and animal life, and because of that on long island Nitrogen pollution has become a major problem. Excessive nitrogen pollution has been formed in our bays from sewages that have caused massive fish kills, turtle deaths, and toxic algae blooms in bays and because of this it also has lead to closing beaches and water bodies around Long Island. Nitrogen pollution threatens our environment in many ways like our health, economy, and quality of life. As read from articles Long Island’s clean waters create jobs and generate hundreds of millions of dollars every year for our regional economy. One major cause of all the nitrogen begin produced and spread on long island is because here New Yorkers are said to be very eager to tend to their gardens and fix up their front yards for the summer months and because of that it brings us to spread and deposit many different kinds of fertilizers to our  grounds. Fertilizer is a common solution for brown spots left on the lawn from the harsh winter months, and its provides a faster and an extra boost to growing flowers in the summer right after the winter seasons. While fertilizers are used to brighten and help grass grow in the yard in the summer there are bigger kinds of consequences that the average Long Islander is totally unaware. Articles have indicated that social science researchers have conducted many experiments that have been tested by The Nature Conservancy in Long Island that there is conflicting values between Long Islanders’ fertilizer usage and their concerns about the quality of their own drinking water and waterways.
