How do industries create thermal and noise pollution? Mention their consequences.
Thermal pollution of water bodies occurs when hot water from factories and thermal power plants is released into them before cooling. The consequences are that aquatic life in the water bodies can be killed. This includes plants as well as fish.
Noise generated by industrial and construction activities, machinery, generators, pneumatic and electric tools results in irritation, anger, stress, hearing impairment, increased heart rate and blood pressure among other physiological effects.
