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.
"(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.
Dempsey says, “This is one of the hardest things I 've ever had to do for my job. It 's devastating how many lives were lost to these blobs.” All two million blobs were killed by a dangerous poison that scientist created. It was unharmful to humans but very dangerous to the blobs which are now named, hirocitria. Scientist still don’t know how they were created but the hirocitria are now extinct. Today, the people of Midtown East are still shaken by the dangerous outbreak and saddened by the fact that fifteen lives were taken by the blobs.
The Great Wall of Ancient China -Hailey Shipley More than 1 million people died while building the Great Wall of China! The Great Wall of ancient China was a huge wall that was build to keep out unwanted people (the Xiongnu). The Great Wall took many peoples lives because of the heights and suffering the people went through. The Wall took around 2,000 years to build. Did the benefits outweigh the costs?
Firstly, the impacts and effects of the Great Leap Forward, which turned out to be a disaster, killing between 20-40 million people and ironically sending China backwards. Secondly, the Cultural Revolution and the chaos and disaster this had on the Chinese population, especially through the “Down to the Countryside movement” and finally, the Cult of Mao and what the idolisation and glorification of Mao meant for the future of China. Mao’s introduction of the Great Leap Forward policy and the impacts and effects this had on the Chinese population as well as its role in the introduction of the Cultural Revolution played a key role in shaping China into what it is today. The plan’s failure lead to Mao’s loss of power, which resulted in Mao introducing the Cultural Revolution in China. Unfortunately, Mao’s five-year plan was a disaster, and caused the death of an estimated twenty to forty
Not only did this earthquake ruin the lives of those close to the victims of the earthquake, it resulted in some serious damage, destroying the homes and buildings of the residents in Nepal. Nepal’s citizens continue to struggle rebuilding the country, though many countries such as the United States, Israel, and China have given benevolent donations to assist confirmed, though these deaths contain an ominous history, all of these unlucky humans to have died in their
The answer for this question was disastrous for the people of Nepal. One hundred percent of the 76 tap water samples examined where shown to be contaminated with heterotrophic bacteria (Pant, Poudyal and Bhattacharya, 2016). Would you rather leave those people to die rather than supply them with healthy water
The Flint Water Crisis is often described as one of the greatest environmental injustices of all time. The crisis began on March 2013 when the city city switched its water source to Flint River. However, due to inadequate water treatment, more than 100,000 residents were exposed to dangerously high levels of lead in the drinking water and a federal state of emergency was declared. The crisis has sparked debate on where to place the blame. A number of civilians, intellectuals, and politicians have agreed that the Flint Water Crisis is a result of the failure of the government on all levels.
According to the World Economic Forum, it was the second most expensive volcanic eruption in the world costing approximately $860 million US dollars (Figure 4). Repairs include the removal of 900 thousand tons of ash, rebuilding homes and businesses, repairing damaged bridges roads and railways (Mount St. Helens: Effects on people and economy). Another negative impact was that most of the trees were destroyed, blown to the ground or covered in mud from the landslide during the eruption loosing lots of valuable timber (Figure 5), this meant that people working in the lumber industry around the area of the volcano lost their jobs and had to move (United States Trade Commission report to Congress 1980). In areas with thick fall of ash, farming lands were covered, destroying crops such as wheat, apples, potatoes and alfalfa (United States Geological Survey,
This caused problems in farms as it meant that there was no water for livestock, causing a problem with food production. It also threatened the ecosystems and wildlife, especially those who live in the river. The drought also caused ships to be stranded and power shortages affected eastern and central China. In spite of the problems this dam causes, But Wang Hai who is the director of the transport division of the three gorges dam told China Daily that he does not accept the thought that the dam has caused water related problems and things could be a lot worse without the dam existing. Most people though, disagree and say that it is impossible that a huge dam wouldn’t have any impact on downstream.
The Red Scare started right after the civil war was over. There had been many riots to accrue during the time of the red scare.

People were losing their lives and the government did all they could to try and stop it.
Within the hydraulic fracking industry, millions of gallons of water are used up and more often than not, are never recovered again(Pros and Cons of Fracking). This affects the surrounding area by turning the area around into roadways for the transport trucks(Pros and Cons of Fracking), it disrupts the locals(Pros and Cons of Fracking), and the soil in the surrounding area is being tainted with chemicals(Potential Health and Environmental Effects of Hydrofracking in the Williston Basin,
