One of the effects of this issue is carbon dioxide emission from the shipping or the transportation of the goods to the all parts of the world (Leopold, 2007). Leopold (2007) also cited various globalization activities that are affecting the environment and promote global warming. He said that the expanded trade indeed has contributed to the massive economic growth rates in China as well as India. As the result, China’s appetite for fuel and power has grown exponentially. Leopold (2007) also added that for every week up to ten days, another coal-fired power plant comes online in the country of China which is large enough to serve a major city in the United States.
Yet, urbanization has many benefits. For instance, development in the good education, tourism industries, trade and commerce growth. However, there are some negative effects as well. Especially when rapid urbanization lead to many risks on health. Therefore, this essay will talk about the health damage caused by urbanization development and will evaluate how practical the solutions are.
Energy consumption is an essential element in development and while the increase in energy use has many benefits, we are becoming also aware of the negative impacts of energy use. These negative impacts are both global and local in the form of climate change or environmental degradation ( for example poor air quality, desertification, resource depletion, and noise pollution) etc. As a matter of urgency, we need to cultivate an alternative and efficient use of energy at all stages of supply and demand chain in order to reduce the negative impacts of energy consumption and at the same time accommodate same and flourishing economic development. Generally, the 21st century has been so far overshadowed by changes in the way we understand and use energy compared to the
“Going green” has become a trend that can only help the cause; making ecotourism a vital and invaluable business. We have established that ecotourism is a fairly new concept in Dubai. With the rapid development of country and its infrastructure a huge toll has been put on the wildlife and heritage. This reinforces the notion that ecotourism is a great way to promote tourism while decreasing the damage that will be caused by further economic development. Many more attractions have been centered on the natural environment like Dessert safaris, horse riding, bird watching, and surfing creating various tourist activities, whilst leaving the environment unscathed.
It affects the natural environment, ecosystems and our health and that of animals and plants. Hence the increased awareness and attention is paid to acid rain and concepts such as ocean acidification. It also has major political impacts. China, the world's largest user of coal, and India, the fourth largest user, are using their own coal reserves to rapidly increase their industrial growth. Reducing coal use, the major culprit in acid rain formation, is going to be economically and politically difficult.
The Industrial Revolution in the 1900s was a time of substantial transformation throughout society. Not only did countries become greatly dependent upon one another, but it has also influenced people’s lifestyles and the global economy. The effects of this are still relevant today. Of course this has brought many benefits, but resulting factors such as urbanization and the hunger for industrial and global economic growth has led to many problems, not the least of which is climate change. The Industrial Revolution started in the 18th century and has severely influenced the way humans interact with each other and their environment.
The production of palm oil holds great importance or significance in Indonesia o Palm oil is a versatile crop that is used in as much as 50% of consumer goods such as beauty, food, hair, cleaning products etc. making it a highly desirable item leading to higher global demand for palm oil. o Palm oil is abundantly grown in tropical countries like Indonesia which is how they make great profits from the production of palm oil. II. The development of palm oil has led to environmental and social issues o Deforestation of Indonesian Rainforests has led to the release of carbon emissions into the atmosphere contributing to climate change and making Indonesia the world’s third largest emitter of greenhouse gases.
As the world becomes more and more aware of global warming and its devastating effects, the spotlight is on various industries that have a negative impact on the environment. The textile industry is one of the industries that have been identified as one of the biggest contributors to the negative effect on the environment. One of the processes that use huge amounts of water in the textile industry is wet processing for dyeing, finishing and printing. These processes enhance the products aesthetically making it appealing to the customer. Finishes such as flame retardants, adding softeners for a luxurious handfeel, dyeing, printing, add value to the textile.
Due to the advancement of technology in the United States, there were several greenhouse gases responsible for global warming, and the citizens of United States contributed to the emission of these gases in many ways. It is evident that most of the gases came from the combustion of fossil fuels from factories, cars, deforestation, gases used for refrigerator among many others by the citizens. The carbon dioxide gas which led to global warming, trapped heat and remained in the atmosphere longer comparatively to other gases. Undeniably, United States was completely responsible for the emission of these
CHAPTER 1 1. INTRODUCTION The air we respire contains mixture of natural and man-made chemical, physical and biological elements that modifies ambient air quality. Among all air pollutants, the most threatening for human health include particulate matter and gaseous pollutants such as carbon monoxide, ozone, nitrogen dioxide and sulfur dioxide (WHO). The movement of people into urban areas and the growth of industry within these areas has carried more people into contact with air pollution than any other time in recent memory. High concentrations of air pollutants can cause instant physical symptoms such as rapid pulse and restricted breathing but, even the presence of trace amounts is considered detrimental to health (Levy et al., 2000).
