They both have reasons for why it 's bad. They show smoking tobacco is bad when they say things like these two examples, for example, According to Britannica school“The primary cause of the escalation in the number of deaths and incidents of disease from tobacco is the large increase in cigarette smoking during the 20th century. During that time cigarette smoking grew to account for approximately 80 percent of the world’s tobacco market.” (Britannica). According to the SIRS discoverer “Cigarettes and smokeless tobacco kill hundreds of thousands of Americans every year. Nicotine and the dozens of other poisonous chemicals in tobacco cause lots of diseases, like heart problems and some kinds of cancer.
Every year, industrial accidents causes a number of deaths, injuries and property loss due to petroleum refining operations. Industrial accidents have become a threat to human safety such as the accidents at the Skikda refinery in January 2004 and October 2005 and the accident at the Arzew refinery in 2007 (Chang and Lin, 2006). Besides that, petroleum refining unavoidably generates considerable volumes of oily sludge during oil production and processing activities (Dibble and Bartha, 1979), oil pollution accidents have nowadays become a common phenomenon and have caused ecological
Internationally, marine debris poses a great danger to marine life because marine debris follows the flow of ocean currents and travels worldwide. Studies show that many marine species are wounded and killed when they ingest or become entangled in marine trash. For example, more than 250 marine species were reported to be entangled in or have ingested marine debris (Marine Mammal Commission, 1998). By restraining movements, entanglement could kill marine animals through starvation. Moreover, ingestion of marine trash such as plastic might kill the animals through suffocation and starvation.
Oil burns and releases toxins and CO2, poking holes in the ozone layer. People inhale oil fumes and suffer with asthma. There are a million ways that oil is destroying human lives, but if we get off land and go underwater, oil’s damaging effect on the oceans’ habitats adds the more reasons to strive for the use of alternative energy sources. Since oil began to be used widely as a fuel, there hasn’t been a year without a copious number of oil spill incidents. In the US alone, the Office of Response and Restoration of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) responds to over a hundred oil spills each year (NOAA).
From the sociological perspective, it was a huge social, cultural, economic and psychological threat for the communities living across the coastlines, cleanup workers, and especially children. Firstly, oil was released into the sea; it spread out on the surface of the water and contaminated the sea and coastlines. Statistics had shown that the Gulf oil spill killed 3,902 birds, 517 turtles, 71 marine mammals and more than thousands of other wildlife animals under the sea are covered by oil during or after the disaster (Merchant, 2010). Besides, the contaminated
INTRODUCTION Environmental issues are any issues created by humans which cause harm to the environment in particular the on fire of fossil fuels (coal, oil and gas) and large-scale deforestation, which cause emissions to the atmosphere of large amounts of 'greenhouse gases ', of which the most important is carbon dioxide. But in last few decades a new environmental issues have rose very rapidly that is formation of marine trash islands that are formed when dumped trashes in the sea are carried to a number of regions where the currents meet and Island of trash is formed. Plastic debris in the marine environment have been widely documented, but the quantity of garbage mainly plastic entering the ocean from waste generated on land was never well documented. As the number of waste present in the oceans corresponds with the increase in the increase of population, the issue of the trash islands in the oceans like Pacific and Atlantic is becoming increasingly severe. By linking worldwide data on solid waste, population density it was found that • More than 350 million tons of plastic produced globally every year • More than 13 million tons of plastic is dumped into the oceans every year • More than 80% of plastic dumping is from just 20 countries.
Climate change has adverse consequences for health: as carbon goes up health goes down 2. Estimates around 150,000 deaths now occur in low-income countries each year due to climate change from four climate-sensitive health outcomes – crop failure and malnutrition, malaria and flooding. 3. Many of the major killers such as diarrheal diseases, malnutrition, malaria and dengue are highly climate-sensitive and are expected to worsen as the climate changes. 4.
One of these problems is land and water pollution, as we all know that animal factories produce tons of waste every day. Animals in factories produce more waste than the entire human population and it’s hard to throw it all away, so they mix it with water to form a liquid and then they held it in a manure lagoon, which can leak and spills to the lands and rivers nearby. “There is a report shows that the waste of animal has polluted more than 35 thousand miles of river in the United Sates.” (Good,2014). Land and Water pollution can lead to Air pollution, because manure lagoons emit H2S, and “H2S is considered one of the most dangerous gas. It has a rotten egg smell and is heavier than air” (Good,2014) which is bad for the humans and can cause vomiting and headaches that
1. INTRODUCTION Water pollution is the contamination of water bodies or sources such as lakes, rivers, oceans, aquifers and groundwater. This type or form of environmental degradation occurs when the pollutants are directly or indirectly discharged into water those water bodies without enough or adequate treatment to remove those harmful compounds that may cause contamination. It is a major problem in the whole world, which needs and requires on going evaluation and revision of water resource policy at all levels. It is the leading worldwide cause of deaths and diseases and people suffers from water pollution related diseases every day.
Pollution is the cause of many problems we are facing today. For example global warming and the ozone layer depletion. This isn’t just harmful to us humans but it is also harmful to the environment and animals, we changed everything. Black smoke in every corner, deforestation, desertification, oil in the depth of our sea. Some don 't really realize how special our planet and our home is.
