Lamentably some people don´t have access to these 20% of clean water and they have to use the contaminated one leading to skin problems, death, etc. “Honduras has a high concentration of polluted rivers, it turned human activity and population growth ... The Choluteca, Chamelecón and Ulua rivers are the most sensitive cases of contamination, receiving wastewater from the cities of Tegucigalpa and Valle de Sula, receive industrial wastes, agricultural chemicals used or manufactured in the basins, landfills and sediments on its banks, among others.”( Jose, no pg) To be brief hondurans should be more conscious about what they´re doing because when they contaminate the country they are actually making a damage to themselves and to further generations that
Agent Orange’s use by the United States affected Vietnam in a negative way economically, demographically, and ecologically. Agent Orange had many negative effects, especially with the contamination of water sources and the disruption to the balance of the ecosystem. Even today, the Vietnamese population is still feeling the effects of the outrageous chemical. In fact, the agent can bond with a component in a person’s cells and the genes get passed down from generation to generation. This is a scary discovery when it comes to the lives of thousands of people.
As that happening in Niger Delta region, it is shown that poor policy discourse creates even more environmental challenges to the region and intensifies their women’s vulnerability to climate change and environmental insecurity. Not only poor policy discourse, poverty also the reason overconsumption exists. It is certainly not possible to achieve environmental sustainability while poverty and inequities left unsolved. Gender Plan of Action can be expanded and changed to be more focussed on the issues of feminist environmentalism. Comprehensive strategies are also needed for climate change mitigation.
Children in this country have the right to education, equality, adequate food, health, life, access clean water & other safe resources, and many more. However, some rights are critically threatened by current environmental issues such as contaminated water sources, increasing ocean temperature, and rising sea levels. Climate change had taken a heavy toll on Tuvalu’s land; corals reefs are damaged, and lands are slowly disappearing. It puts children at a great risk of displacement or possibly extirpation. In addition, citizens are relying heavily on rainwater source due to the contamination of groundwater by urban runoffs.
Existing freshwater resources are gradually becoming unavailable due to these activities (Reddy & Lee, 2012). Some of these heavy metals can seriously affect many living species especially humans because of its severe toxicity (Hadi, 2013). But farmers, most especially, are affected by this pollution. Tons of chemical pollutants are being discharged inconsiderably every year on bodies of water by industries of developing countries. This results in the gradual decline of the availability of freshwater resources globally (Reddy & Lee, 2012).
Please do not forget to list the references you used. The Liberian Rivers and Lakes have serious environmental issues which have to be addressed beyond a community capacity. The first environmental issue associated with rivers in my country is the massive pollutions that are causing enormous deaths. One of the few multination companies in the country called the Firestone Rubber Company has the habit of dumping toxic chemicals in the Liberian waters; therefore, making the waters unusable by citizens. Besides the fact that citizens that depend on these rivers
Water scarcity is lack of sufficient, clean, and safe water in a given region. This is very common as it affects every continent around the world and almost 2.8 billion people. Water scarcity often occurs and is a dominant isuue in the world since it threatens human health and economy. One of the main causes of water Scarcity is water pollution. Water pollution is the contamination of water due to unhealthy human activities.
SIDS are ecologically sensitive. The biggest disadvantages are limited resources, geographic expansion and isolation from world markets. Even if these countries are almost not responsible for the climate change, they are likely to suffer the most, and in certain cases even become uninhabitable. For that they need the help and attention of the international community. SIDS are really sensitive to climate change, climate variability and sea-level rise.
It comprises of a multitude of components with valuable materials, most containing toxic substances that can have an adverse impact on the environment and human health. The facts mentioned before says it all. In country like India, coupled with inappropriate infrastructural facilities and procedures for its disposal and recycling has posted a significance importance of e waste management in India. Most people are not aware of the potential negative impact of the rapidly increasing use of monitors, computers and televisions. They pose serious health risk and when these products are placed in landfills.
Air pollution makes the person look old, which 10% from people who lives in city life exposed to premature aging (Group, 2015). Air pollution is one of the biggest problems on earth, which lead into bad effects on health and environment. Human breath polluted air which lead the person to be in risk by exposed to asthma and respiratory problems, also bad breath leads to cancer, heart attack and problems in immune and endocrine systems. On other side air pollution effect on environment by smog, acid rain which killed the plants, and ozone layer holes which allow ultraviolet rays to pass through the earth and it is not good for living things. The causes for all these effects are natural, global warming, traffic congestion and oil industry like
