American produce a lot of trash, now add the rest of the world and tell me how much the entire world produces in one whole year. If you did the math it turns out to be that the world throws away 250 trillion pounds of trash each year. Thats a lot of trash and waste. Consequences of trash and waste are that it builds up over time and then we run out of room till we start to live on this trash and waste. Also we can't burn this trash as much as we want because it gives of a small amount of CO2.
The composition of toxic smog in china is very complicated, but its main part is PM2.5(Particulate Matter 2.5), which means particles that can be drawn into lung, which diameter is less than 2.5 micron. The formation of the toxic smog consists of many aspects like climate change, desertification, urbanization, vehicle emissions, burning fossil fuels, cooking... According to the Chinese national geographic magazine, about 10% of the smog can be considered as natural emissions, but nearly 90% is from other man-made emissions, directly from the economic and social activities of human beings. So, the fast urbanization in recent years of china is one of the main causes of its smog problem. Urbanization is an irreversible result of population growth.
Construction business in China is important, because China need the construction business to improve their economy. According Lovells, H. (2014), some companies did not follow the environmental protection regulation which would be fined and penalties because they always use ‘relationship’ or simply paid for the penalties and fines. Government should be more strict to protect the environment in China. Government should be more alert for the air pollution, and be more attention for their people
Everyday in its 48 kms stretches through Delhi, Yamuna picks up nearly 220 million liters of untreated sewage and industrial effluents from city 's 17 open drains. The Najafgarh drain alone account for 54 per cent of pollution. The daily pollution load of untreated waste dumped into river Yamuna is estimated to be 392 mid. Similarly, river Gomati near Lucknow receives huge quantities of industrial wastes from distilleries, paper and pulp mills and sewage-causing so much pollution that drinking water following toxic discharges of some of the factories was declared unfit for human consumption, in 1987. The high BOD resulted in heavy fish mortality and contaminated to an extent that the district authorities had to ban the
• Millions of poor people are affected by preventable diseases, which are originated from insufficient water supply and sanitation. • Each river in India is polluted. They are saturated with toxic metals, fluoride, and nitrates. How to overcome it: • It is essential for the Indian government to balance competing demands between urban and rural areas, wealthy and poor, the economy and the
(Ahearn, 2011) 3.1 History of Air Pollution Problems with deterioration in air quality appeared after Industrial Revolution and during the period when cities started to grow. In 20th century when country began getting rich, standard of living increased and more and more people moved to the urban areas. (Ahearn, 2011) Current air pollution is the result of very quick industrialization, urbanization and increasing usage of vehicles (the main contributor). (Zhang and Samet,
Coal makes big catastrophes to the atmosphere and health, and it is because it exudes lots of quantities of chemicals compounds to the air, water, and land such as mercury, uranium, thorium, arsenic and other heavy metals. A report issued by the World Health Organization, indicates that the coal particulates pollution is estimated to shorten approximately 1,000,000 lives annually worldwide (World Health Organization et al, 2011). The maritime logistic chain would be affected because in the near future countries will demand less coal and in the long run a complete shift of product. . Due to the greenhouse effects coal burning produces, big consumers of coal like China and India will be forced to decrease their coal consumption.
We must wake up now! We should stop air pollution in China! First, the air pollution has caused big loss in the economy of China. Why will things be that? According to Professor Chai Fahe(2005), a researcher with the Chinese Research Academy of Environmental Sciences, the burning of coal is the biggest factor contributing to northern China’s smoggy conditions.
It may seem like our world is getting more polluted and it is! Pollution damages all aspects of the environment including air quality, water quality, soil quality, food quality and quality of life. According to DoSomething. org, each year 1.2 trillion gallons of untreated sewage, stormwater, and industrial waste are dumped into US water. At this rate, many people are affected.
Main sources of water pollution in Bangladesh The main sources of pollution in Bangladesh could be divided as follows: 1. Dumping of municipal, hospital and toxic waste polluting both surface and ground water sources. In Bangladesh, more than 200 rivers are received of large quantities of untreated waste water from industries such as textile, dyeing and painting, pharmaceuticals, food industry etc. On a daily basis, nearly 16,000 cubic meters of toxic wastes are being discharges (Islam Faisa, 2002). 2.
