Considering the social and economic unsustainability factors of the Three Gorges Dam, there are also various environmental reasons for the unsustainability of the project. The main motive of the Three Gorges Dam project was to be able to prevent floods that have killed thousands of citizens and has destroyed millions of homes, however the dam will flood over 1,000 acres of farmland and will obliterate over dozens of villages, causing 2 million Chinese people to evacuate their home. (China 's Mega Dam) The irony of this situation is that the problem that the dam is trying to fix, the mass floodings, is in fact making the situation worse by flooding more land, and once all of the land is underwater all of the structures and sewage will pollute the Yangtze river and could eventually cause backup in the dams
While the Children in Flint Were Given Poisoned Water to Drink, General Motors Was Given a Special Hookup to the Clean Water. A few months after Governor Snyder removed Flint from the clean fresh water we had been drinking for decades, the brass from General Motors went to him and complained that the Flint River water was causing their car parts to corrode when being washed on the assembly line. The Governor was appalled to hear that GM property was being damaged, so he jumped through a number of hoops and quietly spent $440,000 to hook GM back up to the Lake Huron water, while keeping the rest of Flint on the Flint River water. Which means that while the children in Flint were drinking lead-filled water, there was one — and only one — address in Flint that got clean water: the GM

Places all over the world, especially in developing countries are suffering from contaminated water. However, to keep this proposal narrowed down, and because of time consumption, focusing on places in the U.S will be most appropriate. (Good!) In 2014, the state of Michigan decided to switch the cities’ water supply from Lake Huron to the Flint River because of doing this there was a major environmental issue that had our nation shocked. The citizens of Flint, Michigan were subjected to unusable drinking water.
I believe that so many colonists died in Jamestown between 1607 to 1611 because of the environment, the relations between the colonists and Indians, and above all the colonists’ poor choices. My first piece of evidence is the environment. The position where Jamestown is in a saltwater transition, and the document also states that because of the tides, the human waste festered, making the saltwater contaminated (Document A). Some more evidence is the lack of food abundance, making it harder to fish or hunt (Document A). Another
What a child sees can affect them in many ways. Exposure to interparental violence has been associated with the tendencies to worry in children. Consequently, children's anxiety is also affected by interparental violence and conflict. Additionally, interparental violence has been, linked to both internalizing and externalizing problems(Kelley 1025). Internalizing problems are negative behaviors and low self-esteem.
The Flint water crisis is an ongoing catastrophe that is currently affecting around 98,310 resident’s water supply in Michigan. What makes matters worse is that this particular area is already poverty stricken, with 41% of house hold income averaging around $24,862. (CNN) With that being said they don’t have the money to just up and move because of contaminated water. The people of Flint are suffering physically, mentally and emotionally because of the water crisis, the rising levels of lead found in the water have caused brain damage, hair loss and even cancer. The government has been taking an ample amount of time to resolve this matter, but have yet to come up with a solution to the problem.
This is a big problem that people face nowadays and they do not have any solution to fix it. The thing that we don’t know is that pollution is an old problem that humans faced many years ago and it only became worse nowadays. Humans bad use for everything they have leads to pollution like throwing waste in oceans and the sea, using chemicals for the plants and also factoring and car smoke that effect on the human life pollution effects animals that some of them may existed and some will be ill and that threatens human life that the virus may move to them also they may don’t have a therapy for it. That all comes from when people use factories smoke and also starting using the cars. In a website Causes and effects of environmental pollution- conserves energy future.(2009).
Research has shown that they could suffer from Residential School Syndrome, which has some symptoms that are similar to those of post-traumatic stress disorder (Barton, 2005). In turn, this can have a negative impact on some, if not all, aspects of an individual’s life, because these symptoms tend to remain with a person forever and are exceedingly difficult to eliminate in a short period of time. Moreover, residential school survivors have been noted to possess low self-esteem, bad parenting skills, and unsatisfactory social skills- all of which can be attributed to the detrimental and abrupt disruption of their childhood (Barton, 2005). Embodying these qualities is extremely toxic and will most likely affect a child’s ability to maintain a positive outlook on life once they reach

The Flint Water Crisis is a state emergency in which the government decided to save money by switching over their main water source from the Detroit River, to the Flint River. This resulted in the residents of the city of Flint to be poisoned. The horrible conditions of the Flint River water caused lead to get into the water supply from the old pipes. This meant that the water was toxic with extremely elevated lead levels. Between 6,000 and 12,000 young children were exposed to drinking water with elevated lead levels in it.
