Abstract The report shows two important water problems in China current water environment--water pollution and uneven water resource, and how to resolve water crisis of uneven resource. Because of the pressure of water pollution and uneven water resource, China has become a water shortage country. The solution of the shortage of water resources will be found on the Internet. My hypothesis is that damming can be an effective way to solve the uneven water resources. China has successfully implemented the South to North Water Diversion Project, so that the dam can be suitable for China 's sustainable development.
China’s government is aware of the severity of these water shortages happening all over the country especially in northern China. In northern China, they do not have a dependable source of local water or clean water due to the excessive amount of pollution in the air. Just imagine how this affects the rest of China and around the world. According to Yong Jiang, China’s Water Scarcity, Yong states, “China’s water shortage is of global concern because China and the rest of the world are increasingly connected, both economically and environmentally” (2005). China, however, has shown interest and motivation to solve this detrimental problem by initiating a policy to advocate for a healthy environment.
Water pollution is an epidemic in China. Most of the pollution comes from companies that try to recycle the waste, but all they end up doing is more harm to the environment. China recycles everything from plastic to electronic parts. More cancer is popping up in villages due to the contaminated water. From the water they drink to the water they use to wash their clothes, all of it has harsh chemicals in it.
A generic definition for flood is something like this: It is an overflow of a quite large amount of water that goes beyond the normal level at a given area which is normally considered a dry land. But this simple definition hardly captures the picture of the disaster a flood can become and the damage it can wreak on a locality. With rapidly increasing unpredictability of the weather patterns globally and a number of natural and man-made factors interfering with the environment, a flood is a more common scenario today than ever. It is now considered as the most costly natural disaster too, as the recurring damages done by the floods across the country is putting a heavy toll on the financial planning and estimations nationally. With increasing
Desalination is a common solution to supply fresh water in many regions of the world where face with water scarcity . Water scarcity is one of the most important problems in many parts of Iran and desalination of saline water (sea and brackish water) is the monopolized solution to provide water for drinking, agricultural and industrial purposes . The majority of water resource does not satisfy to the desirable levels of chemical properties, such as hardness, nitrate contamination, heavy metals, etc . Due to the high solubility of magnesium ion in water, it is the third-most-abundant element and second-most-abundant cation dissolved in seawater , as well as, magnesium is one of the dominant elements in brackish water and groundwater
In order for these plans to work, a shallow water dike would need to be built around where the Alamo and New River feed into the Salton Sea. Then, an artificial river would need to be created to bring water from the south end of the Salton Sea to treatment facilities that would be built at the north end of the sea. The water would flow north, then would be treated, and then would be deposited back into the Salton Sea at the north end. This would over time allow for water to continue feeding the Salton Sea, except it would be clean water. The downside to this plan is that in order to create a canal and to flow water into it, it would expose much more of the basin along the shore.
When it comes to the thought-provoking question of what is limiting economic growth around the world there is no definite answer. Dean Kamen is the founder of SlingShot a water purifier Kamen in the documentary not only identified the problem he proposed a simple solution--clean drinking water. Resources contribute to economic growth and water is a resource unfortunately many countries don’t have access to clean drinking water. How can you have economic growth when half of the population is sick and not don’t have the ability to work because of the water contamination? Although, we are currently on macroeconomics this was shown on a micro level with the Flint water crisis.
Although China is the main concern, the air pollution throughout the world is also detrimental as “98% of cities in low- and middle-income countries with more than 100,000 inhabitants do not meet WHO air quality guidelines. However, in high-income countries, that percentage decreases to 56%” (“Air pollution,” 2016, para. 2). The reason that air pollution is extremely harmful is that of its increased risk of lung cancer, heart disease, stroke, and chronic and acute respiratory diseases, including
An uneven distribution of fresh water around the world also causes an increase in humanitarian organizations. The organizations help bring safe drinking water to developing nations and disaster areas. Still, not all people are peaceful. For example, when Egypt felt exposed to Ethiopia altering the Nile, they threatened to use military power. Another example is in Central Asia, the arid climates in some of the former Soviet Union countries causes a lack of water, leading to
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
