The way hydraulic fracturing is affecting the environment is too harmful for it to be a sustainable option. It contaminates drinking water, turns unused lands into industrial dumps. They pollute the air and with global warming emissions and create earthquakes. People’s right to clean water is being compromised by fracking industries, not being careful enough and their lack of regulations enforced on them. There are numerous occasions in
Most of the waste produced on land is either intentionally or unconsciously discharged into the oceans. Marine pollution and aquatic debris can utterly destroy the oceans causing extinction of the marine creatures. Innovative techniques should be implemented in the law to prevent the marine environment from any further damage. In order to improve the marine environment, the government and the Environment Public Authority of Kuwait should take immediate actions that can influence the society and help in minimizing aquatic debris and pollution. Aquatic littering and marine pollution can be caused by a number of different sources.

People complain about pollution from factories, cars, global warming, and the melting of polar ice caps, yet many people disregard the dangerous that come with fracking. Fracking is the process of injecting liquid at high pressure into subterranean rocks, and/or boreholes to force open existing fissures and extract oil or gas. Fracking is causing an epidemic economically and environmentally. Fracking is continuously destroying the earth day by day. From the endless fracking today’s economy is depleting.
Chemical cleanup was also given a trial run by the U.S. Coast Guard. However, the current of the water was not enough to evenly distribute the dispersants that were supposed to break down the oil and it only added to the amount of pollutants in the Sound (EPA). It is found in recent studies that on select beaches in the sound are still polluted by large amounts of remaining oil deposits (Liszka 1-30). In the end, the Exxon Valdez oil spill was an expensive disastrous accident that continues to affect the people, company, and environment.
Most of society is unaware that unused drugs should be returned to the pharmacy for proper disposal, but a lack of awareness contributes to this problem. The findings here contribute to the need of systematic change to how these drugs are produced, used, and disposed. Drug companies need to make these drugs with disposal in mind, government regulations and accountability of hospitals and individuals need to improve and water treatment facilities will need to address this contamination. The first two steps to reduce the contamination and the water treatment facilities address the rest of it. Much of the research are being done now is for
Nowadays, environmental degradation has become an important issue. This is because environmental degradation is one of the largest threats that is being looked at in the world today. This is because of the depletion of important resources such as air, water, and soil; the destruction of ecosystems; habitat destruction; the extinction of wildlife; and pollution. To limit the impact of these situations, it is important to know the possible side-effects of environmental degradation. Therefore, there are several causes and negative effects of environmental degradation provided in this essay with some recommendations to prevent it.
Recycling has numerous benefits as opposed to not recycling, which means letting the limited resources diminish until there is nothing left. Even though the concept is still widely ignored, recycling has a myriad of benefits to the human population and society. First, What is Recycling? According to EPA government; Recycling Basics; it states that “Recycling is the process of collecting and processing materials that would otherwise be thrown away as trash and turning them into new products.”
This world is suffering serious environmental consequences, it is plagued with wars and violence. So what can be done about that?

Recent climate change has never been a topic without global controversy. With the enormous impact stirred up, from economic loss to environmental disturbance. The ballooning attention to the issue has also triggered fierce discussion of the effectiveness of individual effort in the remedy of the gradually deteriorating environment. In the light of over-exploit natural resources by developers, there are a lot of people accusing the big businesses as the culprit and the biggest liability bearer.
In an academic journal titled Marine pollution control: law, science and politics written by Douglas M. Johnston, he claims, “any effective combination of adjustments and precautions involves difficult organizational tasks that require unprecedented exercises of political will and novel feats of legal imagination” (Johnston, 1972, page 69). Years worth of neglect and irresponsibility mean that the damage has already been done. As with any irreversible problem, the only thing left to do is try to take preventative measures. Be mindful that waterways carry litter, and oftentimes an ocean is the finishing
The toxic chemicals released from extraction were poisoning clean water sources. This lead to increasing cases of cancer, hyperthyroidism, lupus, and renal failure in people located in areas near the present pipeline. These effects clearly show the vast hazard this oil presents for the environment and society. In conclusion, as stated and proven throughout this essay, the Keystone pipeline creates many environmental issues.
