While China is trying to increase its GDP, it is also hurting the increase of production with the negative aspects of pollution. This will be a strong point in my paper, because it explains that although they want to increase GDP, about 8% of their GDP is loss due to pollution. They are losing around $54 billion yearly due to a problem that they are feeding by trying to increase their
China 's air quality is lacking to a point that there is smog everywhere. The reason for this is that china and other countries are growing rapidly which is putting economic growth above environmental growth. Auslin mentions that “ The lack of industrial regulation , the burning of dirty coal, and the rapid growth in private ownerships of cars have combined to create one of the world 's worst air pollution problems”(Auslin). By having the United States come help they could work together to figure out new ways to help fix the air by making cars more green. By doing this China and even America can improve their air qualities in substantial cities.
Due to all of the factories in China, their environment is worsening. The fumes from the factories cause the atmosphere to be heavy with poisonous chemicals. China is still not a full democracy; however, their political positions and enforcement has improved drastically from previous years. While China does flourish and has massive amounts of wealth, it is still subject to the mentality that the country who flourishes the most (presumably the United States), others must suffer under
According to AAA (American Automobile Association), average fuel cost in US is $1,682, average maintenance and repairs cost $767, average car insurance cost $907, average taxes and fees cost about $665, and all add to up to $4,021 per year, which is very expensive for a lower class American family. Since lower class can’t afford to buy a new car, lower class family spend more money on maintain and fuel than average American. Those who can’t afford car at all move to cities or closer to their workspace. Which is why resident of inner of American cities are often
This is not the first time we have had a problem with illegal immigration. This does not make it okay; we must do something and fast. Illegal immigrants must be made legal because there is no way to send 11 million immigrants back without the economy plummeting and creating mass chaos, and making these immigrants become legal will boost the tax revenue by $144 billion dollars. Immigration has many perks for the economy. Nevertheless, it has its downfalls: 35% of those that are illegal are going to commit a crime, 50% of federal crimes that occurred happened near the border,
China. Final Exam Globalization has become the main reason to both China’s prosperity and problems. Manufactory for domestic and offshore needs is the cause of high pollution level. The country chose the direction of economic growth and reached the second place in the rank of richest countries in the world in 2009.

In London, the population was approximately 1 million people, and that is almost double the population prior to the Industrial Revolution. The idea of urbanization encouraged new industries and these became the wealth of the nation. Although the cities seem to be good and terms work and employment, sanitation and these areas was a problem. Diseases such as tuberculosis, cholera and typhoid spread like a wild fire in contaminated area. The unsanitary nature also had a bad effect on the life expectancy of the people living in the
This would result in lesser revenue and lesser profit for companies which could lead to unemployment which is a major economic problem, unlike smoking in public. The cigarette industry earned more than $720 billion in 2013 with over 1.3 billion smokers in the world making it one of the largest industries in the world. Cigarettes are also taxed heavily which is good, as it increases government revenue. Smoking also causes a lot of health problems which is good from the perspective of hospitals. As hospitals earn a lot of their income from cancer patients, smoking causes lung cancer which can be extremely fatal.
In the Cumulated States, these losses are estimated at US$ 92 billion a year. Lost economic opportunities in highly populated, developing countries – many of which are manufacturing centres of the ecumenical economy – will be astringent as the tobacco epidemic worsens, because a moiety of all tobacco-cognate deaths occur during the prime productive years. The economic cost of tobacco-cognate deaths imposes a particular burden on the developing world, where four out of five tobacco deaths will occur by 2030. Data on tobacco’s impact on ecumenical health-care costs are incomplete, but it is kenned to be high. In the Amalgamated States, annual tobacco-cognate health-care costs are US$ 81 billion, in Germany proximately US$ 7 billion and in Australia US$ 1 billion.
For the first time in many years, cars were affordable; The made most people purchase a car which in turn began to pollute the air. To prevent it in 1946, the California Legislature enacted the first air pollution control law authorizing the formation of county air pollution control districts. Another important environmental issue in California is littering. The early litter data from the Coastal Clean-up Day, held annually in September, shows that plastic bag litter had dropped by 72 percent when compared to 2010. The national anti-litter campaign is also making other ways to reduce
