yes, they do impact their immediate environments. yet they are easy to remedy and leave little lasting effects once removed.

do you consider light and noise pollution as real problems? why or why not? what adverse effects can excessive light and noise lead to?

Just like contaminant pollution, noise and light pollution adversely affect most living organisms. Lots of different ways, like melatonin production in humans and reproduction cycles in many plant and animal species. Also, they're a big source of 'stress' (the physiological kind, not the whining when things don't go the way you want kind :-). Our bodies just aren't evolved to have that type and level of constant input.

The effects can last for a good long while, especially if there are other sources of physical stress present, like contaminant pollution. These sorts of things are always cumulative unless the system has time to recover.
