Why does Mexico have such a strong pollution rate? Mexico is surrounded by mountains on three sides, it is also 2,240 meters above sea level, this causes Mexico to have less oxygen, this causes pollution to increase rapidly. Diesel fuels do not burn in the correct form in this altitude, which causes high amounts of black carbon. This investigation will aim to test the effects of air pollution on endangered specie populations in Mexico, this is a very serious global issue since many of the beloved animals that are living in our world are despairing due to human mistakes and carelessness. To test air pollution Research Question: What is the effect of air pollution on endangered species population in Mexico?
I walked to the gas station with a red gas can so I could get some gas. It took me 10 minutes to walk to the gas station when I got there the weather had gotten worse it had started raining. When I got home I put gas in my truck and it started. When I was leaving the wind got stronger and stronger I thought my truck was gonna get blown off the road. When I got to the bridge at Galveston I noticed the water was higher and the waves were really big.
Now we have much worse things like cars that leave of smog and gases like carbon monoxide and all those other gases that are led of from everywhere. They ruin our natural wonders, cause global warming and make the earth look so dirty. These gases cause deaths from premature birth, lung cancer, heart attacks, to asthma attacks. In an article by LA Times it states that, ¨Bakersfield tops the list for having the most unhealthy days from airborne particles spewed by highway traffic, diesel trucks, farm equipment and fireplaces, the American Lung Assn. 's State of the Air 2016 report says.¨ This here is a city that is over polluted because of technological issues.
Our mother earth has now been harmed and injured with all these toxic gases that us humans have released into the atmosphere. These harmful gases have travelled all the way to the clouds and created a monster called acid rain. It may not be found everywhere, but it is living. Acid rain has destroyed crops and even houses all because of us and it won’t stop
A form of pollution where there is a sudden release of liquid petroleum hydrocarbon into the environment is called an oil spill. Mostly, oil spills are due to releases of crude oil from tankers, offshore platforms, as well as drilling rigs. Moreover, oil spills could result in devastating consequences economically, environmentally, and socially. As a result, oil spills brings forth political uproar, concerns of government responses, and ideas to clean and prevent oil spills (Broekema). Environmentally speaking, oil spills are extremely harmful to the environment.
Coral reefs are dying at an alarming rate thanks to many factors, mostly caused by humans. For instance, when we pollute the earth and our oceans by burning greenhouse gases, we cause climate change. This affects the coral as they can’t withstand the water raising by only a few degrees. This often causes coral bleaching, which kills these animals. Also, storms can destroy reefs, also often caused by humans affecting the environment.
Mining not only disrupts the ecosystem by getting rid of trees, but also by polluting water supplies when the poisonous chemicals they use to separate waste from the minerals. The pollution effects local people, as well as fish and animals. These acts unfavorably impact the environment and earth as a
The cause of this was a nasty toxin called microcystin. Microcystin appears because of human pollution and fertilizers that flow into rivers and lakes which then lead to the ocean. Cancer-causing chemicals called PCBs and pesticides like DDT are in marine mammals ' fatty tissues and they cause serious harm. 2. Many health departments encourage people not to swim 72 hours after it rains because the coastal waters are polluted from urban runoff, leaking sewage from sewage pipes and overflowing sewer manholes.
This can be summarized as: 4NO2 (g) + 2H2O (l) + O2(g → 4 HNO3 (aq) EFFECTS OF ACID RAIN: Acid rain affects humans, aquatic life, materials, soil, vegetation and visibility. If we consider them separately: Effects on humans: Breathing air containing fine acid droplets irritates the whole respiratory tract from the mucous membranes in the nose and throat to the lung tissues. It may also cause severe irritation of
Scarcity of clean drinking water is a major symbol of poverty. Human beings particularly children lack health because of drinking unclean water. People depending on river water are not safe because rain water flash dirty material into rivers which leads to diseases. Both people from rural suffers from water problem, even much worse in urban squatters because of high population. Ndingaye (2010:19) states that lack of infrastructural development in rural areas and urban squatters is the major cause why people should drink unclean water which is harmful to their health.
