"(Facts and Details). According to the World Bank two third of China 's population use water contaminated by human and industrial wastes and half of them use Hazardous drinking water (Facts and Details). Water pollution in China reduces the unadulterated water source, destroy the natural beauty, expanding the wellbeing issues and eventually crumple the economic system to create the living conditions more miserable. China is the world 's most populous nation that experiences water contamination. Around 70% of China 's rivers and lakes are polluted and they are risky for human contact.

Another thing that effects the blue crab 's ecosystem is its environmental threats. To begin, one of the environmental threats that blue crabs face is pollution. In the text, it states, “Approximately 6.4 million tons of plastic and other debris enter the oceans each year. And every year., more than 1 million marine animals die from eating or getting caught in this debris,” (Dignan 13). This shows that an environmental threat that blue crabs face is pollution because if about 1 million animals are dying each year because of pollution, we have a serious problem.
Polluted water and poor sanitation claim the lives of about 9,000 people per year in Vietnam, according to the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development. Over 100,000 new cases of cancer are reported, chiefly by using contaminated water. Scientific studies have shown that when using arsenic-contaminated drinking water, people prone to contract cancer, in particular, skin
After watching the movie, “The Return of Cuyahoga River” I was blown away by all of the history, facts, ignorance, and activism displayed in this film. There was so much information packed into this documentary. Information about this 100-mile long river that curves north and then south as it u’s along Lake Erie, and how in “1827 U.S. citizens changed the Cuyahoga River for the first time.” It was originally a swampy marsh infested with mosquitos and caused problems for the city of Cleveland Ohio. Cleveland was a small lazy town until the mouth of the river was widened by humans allowing for mercantile boats to pass by their town. These trade boats came from Europe and now passed through Cleveland on their way down to the Gulf of Mexico polluting at every point along the journey.
Bailey McTigue Professor Wick ENC 1102 Writing and Rhetoric 13 February 2018 Water Pollution An Annotated Bibliography Critical Preface The problem that I care to research about is water pollution. As an environmentalist and someone who cares about the environment, I understand that water pollution is a big deal. I have always loved to research things that humans do to damage the environment. A cause of water pollution is oil spills from big oil tankers. Oil gets into the water and kills the marine life.
Jared Snow Ms. Carrell English 1 AP 9/15/15 Water Contamination Water pollution is any chemical, physical, or biological change in the quality of water that has a harmful effect on any living thing that drinks it, uses it or lives in it. I have spent many hours of many days to research this topic to find out facts of water pollution and how to prevent it. According to Food and Water Watch there are over 780 million people all over the earth that are living without clean drinking water. Another fact is every 20 seconds a child under five years old dies from illnesses that are waterborne. There is a lot of information about water contamination, the main topics are, effects of the percentage of water contaminated, ways it gets contaminated, and what to do in the after-math.

However, some countries are able to control their population growth, such as London, Greece, Japan, Singapore and Israel. Many problems are caused when you live in an overpopulated city or nation to its residents, such as environmental and social problems. Daily, 25,000 people die due to hunger and 18,000 of them are under the age of 5, because their country can’t provide them with enough food to feed the entire nation. One billion people lack access to water throughout the world, because of water shortages. Another issue with water is citizens are trashing their oceans damaging the water we drink and the fish we breed.
The event La Niña 2010- 2011, ranks as the second most critical in 51 years, from the Multivariate ENSO Index (MEI) (Wolter & Timlin, 1993, 1998, 2011) In the other hand, deforestation, waterproofing, drainage of wetlands and agricultural expansion are factors that increase the risk of flooding, because they contribute to increased runoff into rivers, the deposition of sediment in riverbeds and destabilization of saturated soils, that can generate damming and subsequent torrential floods affecting populations and road infrastructure. Nationally, the estimated annual deforestation rate in the period 2000-2007 was 336,000 ha, placing Colombia in eighth place among the countries with the highest deforestation in the world (D,

However, an overabundance of some nutrients, such as nitrogen and phosphorus, impairs water quality. “Agriculture is the largest source of pollution to the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers and streams.” quotes the Washington Post (Baker, 2015). About 50% of phosphorus and 40% of nitrogen dumped into the bay stems from agricultural runoff. According to the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, “Each year, roughly 300 million pounds of polluting nitrogen reaches the Chesapeake Bay—about six times the amount that reached the bay in the 1600s.”(cfb.org). The major sources of the excess nutrients comes from over fertilization of crops with animal manure seeping into waterways, and animals having direct access to waters where waste is carried into the watershed (Baker, 2015).
