Air Pollution in China Air pollution is an increasing concern throughout the world. With escalating populations comes the massive growth of air pollution, which is detrimental to a person’s health, especially on the cardiovascular and respiratory systems. Countless countries and cities have been plagued with toxic air and shockingly twelve of the twenty majorly polluted cities throughout the world are located in China (Zhend & Kahn, 2013, p. 732). China’s air pollution is constantly increasing and harming the Chinese population. One population that is increasingly affected by the contaminated air are the children in China.
In the past ten years, China has created dozens of polluted megacities. The polluted air has endangered the millions of inhabitants in China's overpopulated cities. There are many aspects of the environment that have been polluted or destroyed. The most important one of these is the water in China. China is “polluting the little bit of water they have left” (The Economist).
With an upcoming development and world’s global climate change are causing many degradation of water and its sources. Water resources and its reservoirs are greatly being affected by anthropogenic action or natural phenomenon. When talking about water pollution, we should consider that it is not only about water quality but also about water quantity. Water pollution in Japan had been issue even before the industrialization, especially during “Japan’s Meji Period (1868-1912)”, when “Ashio Copper Mine” dumped huge amount of waste water into Watarase River and greatly hamper the residents (Water Environmental Management in Japan, n.a). It seems that with industrialization and urbanization, the water problem become more severe in Japan.
The officials mostly continue to ignore what the people really feel and how they live in the polluted environment. But there is nothing more real and powerful than the feedback from the people who are living and suffering this environmental problem in China. And if the Chinese Government will not realize this now, the consequences might be unpredictable for the future of the current leadership. Conclusion: Although the Chinese government is undertaking actions and adopting legislation in the field of environmental protection, still the situation remains without palpable improvements. Much effort needs to be made by Chinese government for the implementation and realization of the already adopted legislation in the field of environmental
The first of these is the uneven distribution of water resources of China and the second one is water pollution. Due to its large and diverse geographical conditions, China has a wide range of terrain and climate. Enjoying abundant rainfall in southern and Eastern China, Northern and Western parts of the country received less. This weather pattern will lead to unfortunate, seemingly contradictory effects, floods in some provinces, while others suffered from months of drought. China’s water crisis is the second factor: pollution.
Water pollution in China and Australia has brought several changes to their respective environments and have similar causes and consequences, affecting major cities, towns and villages. The level of severity and how much it affects their populations is different between the two countries, with China’s contamination of water sources and effects on the people on an immense scale compared to Australia. In China, 14 out of 31 provinces failed to meet their water quality targets. According to a 2012 report,“up to 40 percent of China’s rivers were seriously polluted” and 20
Your friend tells you to throw it away when you get home. Once that phone is thrown in the trash, it 's final destination is an e waste landfill in some country. E-waste is technology that cannot be fixed or no longer useful. This has become a global issue that is causing the toxins and chemicals from the electronics effect the human body and cause pollution in the environment. Everyone in the world needs to be informed about e-waste, also known as electronic waste.
This recycled wastes materials that enters disposal sites are providing the needed raw materials for industries. Affirming the recycling method is the best, effective and efficient method of managing solid waste according to the industries. Recycled waste materials will be converted from a useless material into valuable resources, capable of generating employment and bringing in economic returns. Recycling can conserve natural resources and yields environmental, financial and social returns, it conserved energy, prevention of pollution and the expansion of economic. More importantly that a small amount of, what is to be dispose contains raw valuable resources.
He stated in around two thousand and twelve , that if china continues to pollute tis much it will be china’s biggest health problem in a couple of years . Which will cause problems with china first starting of my health care which will hurt them and how much money they are paying for it . “In northern China, air pollution from the burning of fossil fuels, principally coal, is causing people to die on average 5.5 years sooner than they otherwise might.”— Tim Flannery, Atmosphere of Hope, 2015. Estimations by Beijing common government in January 2013 exhibited that most vital recorded (2.5 micrometers in measure), was at right around 1,000 μg per cubic meter. Traces of fumes cloud from territory China has been believed to achieve like California.
