Pollution is damage caused to the environment. Pollution is a problem for everyone all over the world.
Although some places may create more pollution than others, pollution can spread, so that the actions of
people in one country can affect people in a totally different part of the world.

There are thousands of sources of pollution, each causing a different problem or set of problems.
One source can have many affects on different types of pollution e.g. fertilisers may be put on the land,
but get washed into rivers and end up in the sea. The fertilisers may cause different pollution problems
in every place they go. Particles of the fertiliser may end up in the air too.
